My friend absolutely loved this series! :D But for me personally i found it a bit.... sorry, sick. :shock: But i did love the 'locked room' mystery to it, that part was fascinating, ;) and made me want to finish the book if only to find out 'whodunit'. but otherwise, not a very pleasant read. There is an upcoming movie starring Daniel Craig.

I have read this series, and i have mentioned in my other post that i find myself liking it in the end...though not my usual cup of tea...yes the suspense of the story had me going at it like a car chase...though there are some parts that is pretty disturbing due to the misogynistic theme that i found throughout the series. i mean the graphic details of the abused life of Salander was sometimes hard to swallow, although her character really kickass! hehehehe!
I'm not liking that Mikael character much...although he is very intent in helping our heroine till the end...he is too liberated for my taste...and what's the deal with him hooking up with Harriet Vanger?! (somewhere in book 2 i think)but I shouldn't be surprised with the flings he had going on in this series.
and PrincessPea...when i saw ur avatar i had that exact thought, that you might be referring it to dear Lisbeth.

one of the best book I've read. Ganda ng trilogy na to sayang lang di naabutan ng author kung gaano kaganda yung nagawa niya.

I LOVE it to death. It's dark and disturbing, but I enjoyed it. Reading this book made me realize that I enjoy this genre. It's just so sad that Stieg Larsson died so early. I've read that it was supposed to be a 10-book series.. Too bad! :(

I couldn't find any novel similar to the Millennium trilogy.. Or maybe I was just biased because for me, those three books are the best crime/mystery/suspense novels of all time. But maybe this link could help you. It says "if you like TGWTDT, you may like these titles :"

BTW, I've read somewhere, that The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris is similar to our beloved trilogy. I've watched the film, but I didn't enjoy it, so I lost my interest in reading it. I know books are way better than their film adaptations, but that's the case for me.. :lol: Actually, I've seen the Swedish film adaptation of TGWTDT first, and after watching it, I decided to buy the book set. And it didn't fail me, I got hooked.
