    I've heard and read many complaints about Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo1 It's misogynistic 2 It's packed with cliché3 It's too convoluted 4 It's too disturbing5 Lisbeth wasn't autistic enough or was foolishly autistic6 There were too many red herrings and the damn Nazi red herring didn't have the usual payoff7 TooTwo many plots 8 Too hard on Leviticus I will answer these in a moment but first I must declare that I am an unrepentant fan of this book This is one of the rare times when I long for goodreads to have half grades because I would love to give this 45 I can't give it a full 5 though because I sense Mr Larsson's series is going to grow in his last two books And nowback to the top eight complaints1 Perhaps but how can a book whose original Swedish title is Men Who Hate Women avoid misogyny? It can't But at least the misogyny present is a comment on misogyny Larsson isn't being misogynist He's attacking misogyny Moreover our hero Mikael Blomkvist is not one of the men who hate women He is a pretty good guy actually; in fact he's one of the rare guys I would actually categorize as a good guy in most modern literature Surehe's a bad Dad Surehe has a failed marriage and many sexual relationships Surehe makes some decisions that challenge his ethics But he remains a good guy He tries to do well in an ugly world He never succumbs to cynicism And he genuinely cares about all the people in his life Male and female And it's not like Berger and Salander are weak women far from it There may be misogyny in Men Who Hate Women but it is wholly the characters' misogyny those who have it and not the author's2 With apologies to my friend who's first name starts with T Cliché smiché Yes there's some cliché maybe plenty of cliché but who cares? Seriously? We're not talking about Proust here We're talking about a mystery novel a serial killer who dunnit Complaining about cliché in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is like complaining about pinko sympathies in The Communist ManifestoThere's communism in Marx? Really? You think?3 7 Yep There's a couple of distinct plots here but there's a level of verisimilitude to that Have even our banal lives ever had anything important happen without something else important occurring at the same time? Not mine and to have multiple incidents happening simultaneously makes sense to me The search for Harriet Vanger wasn't hampered at all by the Wennerström drama and vice versa And to be honest I loved having a pair of mysteries solved in the same novel 4 Too disturbing compared to what? It's nowhere near as disturbing as American Psycho and it's about average as far as the serial killer genre goes Plus I think there is a power in the graphic moments of this novel particularly Lisbeth's vengeance on her guardian I am not on her side when it comes to this vengeance but I understand it and the drive to take vengeance in such a way such a human way fascinates me Who'd have thought besides maybe my friend Manny that the Swedes have it in them?5 Perhaps this is true but at this point I have only read one of the trilogy and the only person who suggested that Lisbeth was autistic was Mikael and while he thought she was suffering from Asberger's his guess was only in passing I can cut the book some slack here suspend my disbelief suspend my disbelief6 I was stoked that for once the Nazis were a red herring rather than the ultimate degenerated evil We all expect the Nazis to be the worst of the worst so it is refreshing to see them as a deflection instead 8 Can anyone really be too hard on Leviticus? UmmmmmnopeNow I admit that I might love this novel simply because it is set in Sweden After all I do love ABBA Fredrik Ljungberg IKEA my apologies glögg Stellan Skarsgård Max von Sydow Ingmar Bergman and Mats Sundin I looked into emigrating to Sweden but had no excuse being a resident of Canada with no skills the Swedes were looking for and I am a fan of Norse Mythology but I do love Sweden and I was jazzed by the setting of Larsson's book All that aside however I think The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was a compelling entertaining and unabashedly thrilling readIf you can overlook the eight complaints or consider them in a different light you'll like this book too I promise

    Swedish people are nuts I realize that’s a bit of a broad generalization and it sounds a bit rude but I don’t care Because often than not I’m nuts tooI was born and raised in Minnesota and if you know our state history you’re already aware that we were predominantly settled and populated by Swedish and Norwegian immigrants So not only are many Minnesota residents of Scandinavian descent myself included a lot of our uirky mannerisms and even our accents are commonly attributed to this influence I attended a Swedish Lutheran college which attracted a lot of Swedish exchange students And one of my oldest and dearest friends is an American by birth but was raised in Sweden and didn’t return to live full time in the US until she was 18 She’s always found Minnesotans to be a very interesting form of science experiment—what happens when you mix Swedish and American culture anyway? Taking what I know firsthand of Minnesota culture into consideration I can only assume that Sweden aka the motherland is also a twisted place of dark dry humor Some mainstream examples that support this claim would include Fargo Drop Dead Gorgeous A Prairie Home Companion and yes even Mr Purple Rain himself who even though he’s genetically a bit exotic than a plain old Swede definitely displays some of the oddball but typical Minnesota traits in his own special way The point being the characters in this book felt oddly familiar to me uirks and all I’m actually a bit surprised I loved the book as much as I did because I normally criticize authors for trying to jam too much into one story and this book had a lot going on shady business dealings corporate fraud murder religious fanaticism extramarital affairs Nazis casual sex creepy pervs violence against women money laundering sexual sadism political proselytizing dysfunctional family secretsAnd that’s just scraping the surface Because once Larsson got into it and started digging deeper into the plot and revealing details my head started spinning and I had smoke coming out of my ears I wasn’t expecting to be sucked in so uickly by the plot and am still reeling over the fact that this brick like book my copy has nearly 600 pages went as uickly as it did I just reserved the seuel from the library and am also excited at the prospects of a third I’m also sad that Mr Larsson passed away What a talented author—not many could tie so much crazy shit into one story and still have it make sense AND be entertaining Although I think whoever decided to change the title when they released this book in English is nuts too The original Swedish title Men Who Hate Women is much fitting

    I really don't understand the critical orgasms over this book pushed it on me for weeks and the minute I stepped into Borders an employee ran over and recommended it Thinking this really better be the best book I've ever read I took it up to the checkstand where the register guy asked Did one of our employees recommend this? Um yeah And too So of course I asked him why Oh he replied we've been told to recommend it this week That should have tipped me off right there recommendations handed down by management Pfft I hesitate to suggest a conspiracy but did someone end up with too many of these in a warehouse in Duluth? Did Oprah make a bet with someone that she could pull strings and make the most boring book in the world a best seller?But I am suckered in by numerous good reviews and a fairly interesting book jacket description so I buy it and take it with me on a trip camping with my family Of course it totally sucks I'm kicking myself because I feel like I really should have known But the reviews ALL the reviews are absolutely positive from generally reliable sources so I just DO NOT UNDERSTANDHere's why I don't like it I am about a third of the way into it and literally hundreds of characters have been introduced NOT ONE of them has done anything interesting so I am finding it nearly impossible to keep them straight I am the type that will be or less satisfied reading the back of a cereal box but this is BAD I mean bad The mystery is dull The who done it is like a who cares The two primary characters are so far not very likable at all in fact the review descriptions are interesting than the book descriptions of them I'm betting part of the problem is the translation presumably but god there is just some boring writing in here too He went to the store He bought milk He was cold He went home BOR RING I am not really exaggerating either Actual contentHe put on a pot of coffee and made himself two sandwiches He had not eaten a proper meal all day but he was strangely uninterested in food he offered the cat a piece of sausage and some liverwurst After drinking the coffee he took the cigarettes out of his jacket pocket and opened the packAgain I'm willing to give the author the benefit of the doubt with the translating but I wouldn't have gotten out of high school writing with that kind of boring and utterly pointless description It sets the tone of lonely dude being lonely but really two sandwiches? why two? sausage and liverwurst fascinatingThat's really just a page I opened to randomly there is much worse I am truly bitterly resentful of every minute I am stuck on the side of this mountain without a good book to read I'm ready to browse the mini mart down the way and read the real estate magazines instead Why have all the reviewers and steered me SO WRONG???I am not trying to insult anyone's taste so please don't get mad about my opinion But if you love this book please tell me WHY What am I missing?

    Women are raised to routinely fear rape“If you go at night take a friend” “Check under the car and in your backseat before you get in” “I’m just saying it’s a good idea to know where the exits are” “I got you this whistle for your keychain you know just so you have it” “You were an hour later than I thought you’d be We called the police” “Oh that’s pepper spray; I keep it with me just in case” “I just make sure I get my keys out and check for other weapons if I’m getting off work late” “Is this weird? I live alone and I’m going running so if I don’t call you by 1115 call the police okay?”A woman who fights back – no a woman who argues at all – does so knowing it will probably make her a social pariah “She’s just one of those women who makes life hell like a Hillary Clinton type” “You’re different; you’re not a ball buster like some girls” “You know that rape accusations can destroy a man’s life right? And when she said it did you see how she looked? I mean ” “All girls do is complain and nag Not you of course – most girls” “But it is really women who are the privileged ones to be covered and cared for by the man; all of the responsibility for decisions are on him” “He didn’t mean it the way it sounded so you'll just regret it if you tell him he's wrong” “She never understood me and now she’s making all of these claims and trying to take practically half of my paycheck I think she was just in it for the money in the first place” “All I said was she has a nice rack; what a bitch” “That’s just life; make the best of it” And there is good reason we are raised to fear rape and raised not to fight back survival Women know that if we walk alone in the dark statistically there is a good chance we will get raped If we go to the wrong party we’ll be raped If we misread that boy next door and his swellness is a con rape And when a person is in a position of being systematically controlled it often does cause physical or emotional damage to fight back It’s not right but it is realistic It seems to me like it is the euivalent of every man being raised that if he leaves the house at the wrong time he might encounter a woman who will strip him naked hold him down and knee him in the balls while she masturbates And then in this alternate universe these boys find out as they grow up that most of the men they know have had that happen to them And I’m not trying to minimize sexual assault experiences that involve little or no physical injury nor am I trying to minimize sexual assaults against men no one has the right to touch another person’s body without permission I’m talking about the way women are raised to think of daily life Women are not raised to be afraid we’re going to get a super hot BJ that we didn’t realize we wanted which is sometimes how I feel people talk about rape accusations We are raised to encounter our daily lives knowing that even if violence wasn't in our past violence probably is in our future And every time someone says “Don’t go alone” it is a little reminder that a lot of men hate usI have to say though that while I think it is realistic to say that women are raised to fear rape and to incorporate that fear of rape into our daily routine and that sometimes fighting back makes things dangerous I do not believe it is effective to live in fear or to encourage women to live in fear or not defend ourselves I think that perpetuates an idea that women are powerless which then encourages women to freeze up when encountered with violence or even conflict I think trusting our instincts and learning martial arts is probably productive And teaching men not to rapeThat seems like the approach this book takes though it directly simply reflects with appropriate outrage on the levels of male contempt for women And I think in that way in the way it is directed to men it is about how gross contempt for women is whether it takes the form of self absorption or sadismThis book is smart It is symmetrical in its execution in many ways in starting and ending with Blomkvist’s corporate corruption story and in the way it shows men and women accused of race whoring men and women subjected to violence The juxtaposition of view spoilerSalander’s rape with Blomkvist’s consensual sexual encounter with Cicilia hide spoiler

    WARNING This is going to be a long TED Talk because I could talk about this book all day without breathing pauses and I’d still not finish everything I want to say about it 4455 ⭐ for this one because I couldn't convince myself to give it 5 stars no idea why thoughFull review on my Blog The Dacian She Wolf 🐺 “I’d reckon you’d bite off my hand if I laid a finger on you” As Dragan Armansky felt in that particular moment about Lisbeth Salander I felt that about her the whole book And I must say that I liked feeling that way about her That means that she has some sort of wilderness in her personality that makes her so interesting not only as a character but also as a possible real life personThe Girl with the Dragon Tattoo made me ascend through different stages while reading it I rarely find a book like this one to make me feel all sorts of feelings towards it from all the levels of human sensitivity in thinking If I’d have to layer the stages of my process of reading this book probably it would go like this1 Level 1 Confusion I was extremely confused with the beginning I think I had to read it at least five times to actually get a grip of the story in the beginning Maybe it is because I was briefly introduced in the middle of a scene with unknown characters and undiscovered plot I don’t know but I had a hard time with it anyway2 Level 2 Boredom I’ve had a hard time convincing myself that this book deserves to be read because of the epic state of boredom that I encountered I spent two hours reading without stopping only to find out I’ve made only 4% progress yes I read it on my tablet because I don’t have enough finances to buy all the books I want and also survive as a student who is away from home and also likes to eat I kept asking myself what was this bug of boredom that I had and thenit hit me TOO MUCH ECONOMIC TALK As a student at the Academy of Economic Studies my interest should’ve been aroused Even – as I study Business Administration all the business talk should be some delicious dessert for me But NA AH I am bored enough by the countless hours of business terminology ideology and any other –ology that shit implies I don’t need to read about it in my spare time too But hey why not creeping some of that ish in my casual reading to keep the brain on its right track of self destruction ceteris paribus?3 Level 3 Spark of interest After about 100 pages I reckon even something started working for me The mystery started to crawl at the surface so I could see and touch it and also expect and Then the author added some interesting family dirt that I absolutely love don’t judge me I have a weird family too amazingly weird if I may add but still weird and also some World War 2 references all these besides the actual mystery of Harriet Vagner’s disappearance and also possible murder I don’t know what happened from that moment on but it started being good Like really good It’s justyou can feel the mystery especially because the book gives you almost 01 details about the possible murder Your inner Miss Marple must be intrigued Mine was for sure 4 Level 4 Outrage and disgust Since now I haven’t talked much about the eponym of the book right? Well let me talk then Lisbeth Salander And the surely nauseous manner in which she was treated How do you expect anyone with at least a bit of empathy and humanity not to be OUTRAGED and DISGUSTED by the rape scenes which Lisbeth has been put through? It is absolutely indisputable morally wrong and socially disgraceful I am going to be very mean and very direct and I am going to ask a uestion What level of psychical constipation do you need to have to pursue such an abominable act? Yeah those passages made me very sick And very sad Truly I felt nauseous after all But then5 Level 5 ‘She’s a f ing genius arse boss and I’m here for it’ Lisbeth Salander is a bloody ueen and you can’t make me change my mind even with an AK 47 glued on my temple She’s ice cold but she’s breathing fire She’s the fool of the village but she’s the hero of the nation She’s invisible but she’s not transparent The way she seems not to care about anything that may interfere with her principles and also the way she cares about things but never speak them up is just so her so part of the true individual she is even though she might look unrealistic constructed You do you girl You do youThe fact that until the middle of the book Salander and Blomkvist didn’t meet and also ‘the girl with the dragon tattoo’ was reduced only to a few scenes made me uestion my reading choice I was on board only for Salander because she captured my interest from the first time she appeared in scene But then Pippi Longstocking and Kalle Blomkvist merged together and gave life to this fabulous Swedish detective dream team and I was down for it Talking about the characters of the book the female characters were such badass women it felt so good reading about them super businesswomen taking over multinational companies? Yeah okay sign me up I couldn’t feel any real connection towards the male characters however except for Mikael Blomkvist Even though he is a lousy father and husband and he has some shaky ethics in life he is definitely a good man by his nature Yes he has his own issues but who doesn’t? Yes he was having a not so secret love affair with his best friend and business partner Erika Berger but as long as they didn’t make a secret out of it and people in their lives accepted it I can’t say that it is that punishable And also because we are still on the topic Erika Berger I absolutely loved her She is a witty businesswoman with a lot of gut and a lot of cold blood to make decisions and to run her own world She’s a strong woman who makes her own living out of her own life and enjoys it as it is never letting anyone getting to her with some second hand crapBut The most important character of all the one that I absolutely loved beyond any other character isladies and gentlemendrum rollsyes you're right Lisbeth Salander I can’t tell you why I feel this way about Salander but she was my absolute favourite since the very first moment I met her The passive way that she adopted the cold feelings that she spread the taciturn nature and her absolutely killer mind just had me on board Everyone saw Salander as a victim of society but I felt that was wrong I have never had that feeling about her She always inspired me survival She was a fighter by nature and fighters always survive And this is how Salander made her way through life Also let’s be honest now she has a killer T Shirt taste like seriously badass see ‘Armageddon was yesterday today we have a serious problem’ and ‘I can be a regular bitch Just try me’In conclusion this book gave me such a hard time I cannot explain but it was also a really good book that I might consider as one of my own personal favourites Also as a side note has anyone notice how much coffee do those people drink?? Or is just me?All in all people good reading Book styled

    Hey kids if you like books in which the only major descriptive moments happen during sexual torture scenes where major characters lack motive and where the red herringsstink this book's for youI may feel less strongly after a few days but I am having a hard time believing this book has hit the best seller lists in multiple countriesRant containing Mild SpoilersHere are my complaints 1 The entire book sets you up to think that the alleged killings were perpetrated by one or people for complicated reasons Spoiler They're not A murderer at the climax reveals I like killing people That's the motive That's it 2 The title character has her macabre past detailed at length The salient facts to the case how did she come into possession of her detective ing skills? is left out entirely Her emotional life is ignored until it's needed for a little plot development and then ignored again for a gazillion pages She makes Kinsey Milhoney look like a guru of emotional awareness and self knowledge3 When a MAJOR DEVELOPMENT happens in the case like THE MAJOR DEVELOPMENT we the readers hear about its resolution third hand A reunion occurs and we are not privvy to it even though it's REALLY IMPORTANT That is LAME4 Stop with the Mac commericials aleady Is it possible that the well financed campaign for this book had to do with the fact that the dead author couldn't object to selling Apple and Kawasaki shout outs?5The two plot lines are almost entirely unrelated They don't even intersect really; one segues into a second and then when the second is wrapped up entirely the first plot returns to end with a whimper 6 There is a Lot of torture porn in this book Did I mention that? Detailed description of sexual abuse incest and general nastiness that does nothing to advance the plot Really It just takes up space making you think there are reasons for the murders but no see #1 We listened to this on cd and I kept trying to forward and ending up on the absolute worst moments Blech7 Several passages written as an email conversation It's like the author realized at a certain point that he was so bad at dialogue that he'd better just give it a rest for a while and instead use stilted telegraph talking 8 This book was not fun or smart I kept thinking it was about to be but I was wrongEnd of Rant

    After having leaped onto the bandwagon with the rest of everyone I feel a certain amount of pretentious indie pride saying that I wasn't as awed by this book as everyone else apparently was Which is not to say that the book wasn't enjoyable and exciting; it just didn't knock my socks off whilst simultaneously blowing my mind and rocking my world that sounds like either some great song lyrics or a very complicated sexual maneuver Let's go with the first optionSo the good stuff the main story a disgraced journalist is hired by a rich old man to write a book about said man's crazy rich family while secretly working to discover truth behind the disappearance and supposed murder of the man's granddaughter Also in play is Lisbeth Salander a freelance investigator who also happens to be one of the best hackers in Sweden She also happens to be made of awesome but I'll get to that later The journalist is investigating a supposed murder a body was never found so no one even knows what happened to the girl so violence is expected I just wasn't uite prepared for just how intensely graphic the violence is There's a lot of stuff dealing with assault rape and murder of various women There is also a lot of sex in the book and the stuff that gets described in the most detail is definitely not consensual and will probably make you very uncomfortable You've been warned The investigation itself is pretty fascinating implausible as it is that some random guy investigating a disappearance that took place 40 years ago was able to find out completely new leads that weren't found by the police or the girl's grandfather who's been obsessing about the case since forever but I digress The family itself is eual parts interesting creepy and frustrating It's not until the journalist Blomkvist teams up with Lisbeth that things get really interesting and they made such a fun team I wanted them to get their own detective show The book deals mainly with crimes against women and those who commit them Larsson obviously feels very passionately about this subject as well as what should be done with the men who assault women Without giving anything away rest assured that every bad guy rapistmurdererwhatever gets a large helping of tasty justice And now for the bad stuff There's a lot of nattering on about business and computers and journalism and business stuff that either bored me or went over my head completely Larsson cannot seem to decide whether he wants to refer to people by their last name or their first name so he switches back and forth and it is confusing A family tree is provided at the beginning of the book since the family the journalist is investigating the Vangers is pretty big but I never had much trouble keeping everyone straight A map of the island the family compound is located on would have been much helpful since I never really figured out the geography of the place Pointless details I don't need to know what the characters ate for every single meal I don't need to know exactly what model of computermotorcyclecar a character uses and I definitely don't need to know what each character is wearing at every moment of the day Larsson is especially guilty of this when Lisbeth is concerned I guess he decided we wouldn't understand what a uniue counterculture tough chick she is unless we know that she's always wearing leather jackets boots torn jeans and black t shirts with angry slogans yes Larsson actually tells us what each of Lisbeth's t shirts says Listen Stieg Lisbeth is awesome She is wonderfully defined simply through her own actions and thoughts we don't even need the other characters constantly reminding us how antisocial and tough and uncommunicative and badass she is Believe me we can see that Show don't tell etc To sum up I'm going to give the last word to the book itself and uote a sentence that's actually a character talking about a book featured towards the end of the story but it could easily describe Larsson's bookIt was uneven stylistically and in places the writing was actually rather poor there had been no time for any fine polishing but the book was animated by a fury that no reader could help but notice That in a nutshell was how I felt about The Girl With the Dragon TattooUPDATE I just watched the film version of this book the original Swedish one thank you verra much and am adding this to my the movie is better shelf Not that the book isn't good; it's just that the movie streamlines the story and gets rid of everything I complained about earlier in this review In the movie all the minor characters and business drama babble has been eliminated Erika and Mikael's weird three way relationship is thankfully unmentioned Mikael never boffs Cecilia Vanger and Noomi Rapace is so fucking cool as Lisbeth I can't even handle it I'm also pretty sure they took some stuff from The Girl Who Played With Fire and put it in the movie because there's some stuff about Lisbeth's past that I don't remember from the book UPDATE UPDATE Having now seen the American remake and re watched the Swedish version I have come to a following decision While the American version is in a technical sense a better movie Fincher is a much better director for just one example the scene where Henrik Vanger explains the circumstances of Harriet's disappearance is a masterful example of show don't tell I dislike the changes they made to the ending and I simply cannot accept Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Although I'm proud of Fincher Co for making her look and act as weird as the character should something about her portrayal still wasn't right If you're interested this article explains pretty much every complaint I have about American Lisbeth

    I re read this book by audio and even though the narrator was good he didn't do a good job on Lisbeth's voice I wish that Noomi Rapace would have done her own voice That would have been awesome So I have been a fan of this series for uite some time I have the movie trilogy box set of the books that are fan freaking tastic Although now I have to switch from dvd to blu ray I also have a couple of different copies of the books Lisbeth Salander is just freaking awesome She's so bloody smart I wish I was as smart as her and could be an awesome hacker like her too Lol I freaking loved when she got back at the bstard who raped her as well Wheewwwww if only everyone could get that kind of revenge on their rapist Oh happy day There are other things going on in the book but the main story line is about an uncle wanting to find out what happened to his niece Harriet He ends up hiring Mikael Blomkvist to find out what happened Then Mikael gets lucky to have Lisbeth help him Do these two find out some secrets Mikael almost gets killed a time or two Makes you wonder what all they are hiding And of course it's a big ole nasty secret Why am I not surprised It was just as hard to read about the second time around Of course there were other scenes that I had to skim through again but I digress If you haven't wandered into the world that is Lisbeth Salander what are you waiting for? And try and watch the movie trilogy They used to have it on Netflix that is where I originally watched them and then went straight to to buy them Yes they are that good as well as the books Happy ReadingMel ❤️

    The original Swedish title of this book is Men Who Hate Women If you ask me it suits this story much better than catchier but less relevant The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo because it is in fact about men doing all kinds of horrid things to women So here is the first warning to you if you don't handle violence against women and children well skip this novel It's hard to give a short synopsis of the book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo starts off as an investigation of a 40 year old disappearance of a teenage heiress but gradually morphs into a tale of serial murder and corporate trickery spanning several continents and later takes in complicated international financial fraud and the buried evil past of a wealthy Swedish industrial familyI found this book extremely engaging and full of action and came to regret many times that I had an audio version instead of a regular paper book I also enjoyed immensely the amount details about everything the publishing business twisted Swedish family corporate crime history and political order of Sweden etc I am guessing if you don't care to read about any of this subjects this book is not for you because it is packed with this informationMy only ualm about this book a small one was the characterization The character of Mikael Blomkvist smelled of a male wish fulfillment fantasy the one where a man is adored by all women gets laid all the time and always gets lauded for his stellar bedroom skills Lisbeth Salander also felt a little shaky and I thought Asberger's decease didn't uite account for her strange personality I thought her antisocial behavior was inconsistent This however didn't spoil my reading experience I am eager to move on to The Girl Who Played with Fire and see what Mikael and Lisbeth are up to next
