The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
The second film, "The Girl Who Played With Fire"...AMAZING! Usually the second film in a triology is just a throwaway....a connecting film to the previous and the upcoming film. This film could stand by itself!
I have and read all three books. I have not seen any of the movies that are out. Rarely have I seen any movie that really did credit to the book or the author. However I am intrigued by some of the blogs and will certainly give the movies a shot. I am sorry that the author is no longer with us he was truly a great writer and story teller.
I agree that Tattoo is the best because I enjoy meeting the characters. I create them in my mind and love it when a quirk appears later. I LOVE watching the characters unfold throughout the series...but the first is always the best!
The best is Tattoo because it leaves you wanting more.
I have been wanting to check out the girl with the dragon tatto
I read “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” earlier this year. I found the first 30 pages or so a bit slow, but once Lisbeth Salander enters the scene, the story takes off and keeps you in its grip for the duration. It is my favorite (so far)!
I Love the First one is the Best, because it really ignited a craving to know more about Lisbeth. About who she is, where she came from and I seriously doubt I will ever really know her, but I am STILL addicted! I will never get enough of her! She's a reeally Great character!
I have to say "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" is my favorite. I loved the introduction in that first book of the most "kick ass" female protagonist/antagonist character I've ever encountered in any work of literature. The term "survivor" was coined for someone like Salander; yet it is a gross understatement in describing her. Lets just say that Lisbeth Salander ROCKS!
The 3rd, of course! I've never looked so forward to reading how everything is going tie together. Huge payoff - well done!
The first movie was awesome! haven't seen the others though... i guess soon there will be american versions with Daniel Craig but i'm not sure how that'll go.
The first film "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" is my favorite because it was very refreshing for me to watch that film at the time. I was bored with American tent pole movies and the film offered such a intense narrative. Not to mention a superb performance by Ms. Rapace. I was just blown away. The second film was as good too but it lacked the refreshing factor a little bit because I already knew the characters. Can't wait for the last installment!
The Dread Pirate Roberts
"The Girl WHo Played With Fire" is my favorite of the three books (by a small margin) because Lisbeth comes into her own in that book, beginning to discover the power of her gifts,. and realizing that she is not an abnormal person – rather that she is gifted.
The first book is my favorite because it got me interested in the series.
I enjoyed the movie The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo the best mainly because I went into it not knowing what to expect, so everything was a surprise. And I LOVE surprises. Also I really enjoyed the plot of them trying to find the killer. Kept me on the edge of my seat.
I loved the last book, the twists and turns and unexpected story lines kept me turning every page.
the girl with the dragon tattoo movie- it was my first exposure to Lisbeth and it blew my mind!
The first book. i like how she got revenge on here P.O.
Honestly, the last act of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo dragged so badly, I haven't read the other two books. By default, that would be my favorite of the three.
I have to say that the final book in the series is my favorite. I couldn't put it down. There is non-stop action and Mr. Larsson does an excellent job connecting you to the characters so that you don't get lost when he switches back and forth.
I've heard about these books. I really need to get into them. I'd prefer to read the book first, but if the movie is good enough to watch before. I can always read it after.
I loved all three but the girl who kicked the hornets nest was my fave, fast-moving and kept me on the edge of my seat!
I haven't had a chance to read all three of the books but I did enjoy the first
'The Girl with The Dragon Tatoo", it was a great book and I am looking forward to reading the next one. I did not see any of the movies, but they are on my list of things to do. I hope they are as good as the books.
I've been meaning to read the books
I have read all three in the series...and I can't pick just one as a favorite. I loved the series as it is about life at it worst and at it's best...a spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga,
love story, and financial intrigue. As an avid reader...what more could you ask for? Loved them all and am looking forward to the movies!!

"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
