Revealed: Titles of the Other Seven Dragon Tattoo Books

Revealed: Titles of the Other Seven Dragon Tattoo Books


Somewhat interesting excerpt in Vanity Fair of the new book by Stieg Larsson’s “widow.”  Actually, it wasn’t all that illuminating, but I feel bad for her for basically getting shut out of the posthumous windfall from the (vastly overrated) Millennium trilogy.  I saw a trailer for this the other day before X-Men:First Class (an excellent movie, by the way, Fassbender is awesome) and I had no idea it was even for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.  Apparently their marketing strategy is to keep Lizbeth’s character under wraps a la the shark in Jaws (except for the nipple-baring poster.  So shocking!  Whatever.)  As previously mentioned, there’s really no reason to remake this – the Swedish versions were pretty great.  Although I’ve got to be honest, I didn’t think someone from a privileged background like Rooney Mara would even be able to pull off the look.  She has.  (I also saw The Tree of Life – I’m still not sure what the fuck that was all about.  I think I can only progressive through a very linear narrative unless the director is Christopher Nolan.  Check it out, though – X-Men is slightly fresher on Rottentomatoes than TOL.  Suck it, Malick.)

Anyway, one interesting revelation in the VF article was that Larsson actually planned for the Millennium trilogy to be a decalogy, ten books.  (I doubt that’s really what you call a series of ten books, but I’m also not gonna look it up.  I don’t get paid for research.)  As a value-added service, I will fill you in on the other titles of the books in the planned tenology.
