Bought for hubby, but he was a bit disappointed. Lisbeth looks at times like Aurra Sing from the Star Wars EU comics).

With Claire Foy, Beau Gadsdon, Sverrir Gudnason, LaKeith Stanfield. Having the visual and simplified story helped a lot.

I don't like some of the corners that they have cut. The first part was so well drawn that I wanted the next, but had to wait. Nice art and interesting story but is kind of different then the book and film but it still says the same story so if you are a fan of the millenium trilogy. Poor transitions, weak plotting, WAY too much plot line left out. The story is good of having two killers but it is not well built. The art was good but the story was confusing and rushed for a conclusion. And if teenage boys are fantasizing about her, then it’s mission unaccomplished. This was the second part of book one and I'm even more impressed by it. I would only recommend it if you have previously read the original book, as parts are tougher to follow. I was very disappointed with the story telling in this graphic novel. Of course, in the translation from book to graphic novel, some things are lost, and pacing is a bit off, but overall, I thought it was really well done. The art is fantastic and you get a sense of the novel from the graphic novel, even if it isn't a word for word adaptation. She's not fetishized and her relationship with her girlfriend is just that, a relationship. In the meeting, the lawyer Dirch Frode questions Salander about a report he commissioned from her. Series fans who still can’t get enough of the story line may enjoy scrutinizing this to see which small liberties Mina has taken (a little more banter between Blomkvist and his lovers, for example). 81 likes. In particular, she believes a source fed him false information or perhaps threatened his life. After a minor confrontation with a journalistic rival, he escapes to a small café for lunch and thinks about the judgment. Our first introduction to Blomkvist comes as he loses his trial, and we learn very quickly that Blomkvist made his reputation by exposing corruption. To Armansky’s relief, Frode seems impressed by her acumen in spite of her confrontational manner and her unusual clothing. I can't wait for The Girl Who Played with Fire.

Because of these traits, others regard her as unintelligent, but Salander manipulates the assumptions of others to her advantage. I had read the original book a couple of years ago. Well, it's nice to read this kind of cómic, they illustrated better than the book some scenes, but in the book you can imagine all. Nice quality hard cover, art is spot on (realistic, with a touch of extreme contrast. The story is full of interesting plot twists and great buildup. I feel very grateful that I borrowed this from the library and did not buy this myself. The story was well laid/developed in the first graphic novel; I was truly expecting a spectacular conclusion. A darkly humorous full colour collection of sci fi, fantasy and horror comic strips from creators around the globe. I don't like some of the corners that they have cut. Be the first to ask a question about The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Book 2. Though Blomkvist handles matters with a calm pragmatism, his devastation over the loss of his reputation rather than the financial cost of the verdict indicates the value he places on his good name and the extent to which he trades on that reputation to do his job. by Vertigo. The trend seems to be slap something together so the adapter and/or publisher can ride the wave of popularity before the fan base is lost. I won't rehash the book's plot here, except to say that it's equal parts murder mystery, rape revenge, and social commentary. I am choosing to believe that this lack of information was something lost in translation by the adapter of this graphic novel and not by the original author. tags: political. So glad I read the book (& saw the move - both of them) before reading this because I would have remained 100% lost and wondering how this was a best seller had I read this first! After a rather solid first half this second, and final, volume of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo loses its way a little bit. Ships from and sold by BOOKS_EXPRESS_USA.

Should only be read if the novel was read. I enjoyed the comparison between the original novel, graphic novel, and movies. I watched the movie awhile back but of course this book gives way more detail surrounding so many of the events as well as Mikael's and Lisbeth's life.

So when I saw that there was a graphic novel I jumped at the chance to read it. SparkNotes is brought to you by Barnes & Noble. However, the interactions between Salander and Armansky also reveal Salander’s position as an unwilling object of erotic desire.

Amazingly enough, Denise Mina manages to capture this story in so few pages. Though I can't say I mind the resemblance of Daniel Craig in comic book form, as he is a beautiful man both on screen and on paper.

Refresh and try again. I intend on reading the original series because the storyline is creative and interesting. Must read for any fan of this series. I was glued to my seat for the entire ride. The art in this book is amazing and thank goodness they stuck to the ending in the book, unlike the American version of the movie. After the phone call, he begins to weep.

Both Noomi Rapace and Rooney Mara conveyed her damaged psyche hauntingly onscreen. Both books also were combined into. In a rare occurrence that surprises Armansky, she states her belief that Blomkvist seems to be the victim of a setup.

I'll be watching the movie (and yes probably rereading the novel and watching the Swedish version to compare notes), because I suspect that this graphic novel was influenced heavily by David Fincher's film which came out in 2011, just a few years before this came out.

What started off as just a mystery surround a missing person turned into so much more....corruption, murder, lies and family secrets. Martin Vanger's fatal car crash is confusing and truncated, Lisbeth and Mikael's first love-making is cut short with no chemistry or feeling between them, leaving the scene cold and superfluous, and the ending with Wennerström being ruined by Lisbeth is far too rushed.
