Junying I loved the books, and have watched the first two films made in Sweden. I think they made great efforts to stay faithful to the original novels, although it's not possible for a two-hour film to convey everything from the magnificent books.

I am not sure if Hollywood can do any better with their more well-known actors and bigger budget. Still I look forward to their versions - I so love Stieg Larsson's books and would watch anything inspired by them. They are the best books I've read in recent years, and will remain in my all-time favourites. I'm so sad that the author has passed away in his prime, such a huge loss to all fans world-wide. I wish to see more writers like him, addressing important issues of our era and in this world.

Sara I am seriously in love with the movies, and I've finally gotten around to reading the books.

One thing that upsets me, is the fact that Hollywood is going to ruin a good thing! It's rare when I am a fan of Hollywood redoing foreign films, more so when the original films are recent, and the actors and actresses in them aren't even dead yet. I don't know, call me crazy but it seems like a challenge saying "I can do this part so much better than you!"

Noomi Rapace was just so... perfect for the part. And her tattoo, though it didn't match the description in the book, was simply epic. And watching the movie with subtitles and trying to catch language similarities is just fun. Seeing this film in another language makes it almost... Well, God like.... That last comment was me being a silly American girl who can only speak very little spanish.

Knowing Hollywood, they made it all about the explosions and what not! I worry, I probably wont even see the American version.
