Ten years late to be exact, but damn it was worth the wait.
Until yesterday, Gorky Park has been my “go to” crime thriller book, with repeated readings. I have to say it though, it looks like I am going to have make time for regular rereads of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
I love Sweden, and I enjoyed the setting, but it was Blomkvist and Salander that stole the show, and their interaction.
I need to read more, and I am curious to know more about Stieg Larsson. The little I have read about Larsson and the distribution of royalties to his father and brother rather than his partner got me thinking. I had been worried that under Danish law my own father would be entitled to a share in the sales of my books in the event of my wife and I dying at the same time. However, I recently discovered via social media that he died a little over a year ago, so… problem solved.
I guess I must be channeling a little of Salander. 🙂
So, tonight, if I get my writing done for the day, I’ll be watching the film with Daniel Craig. I heard the Swedish film is better, but I can really imagine Craig as Blomkvist.
Of course, I could always start reading book 2…
