I watched the Swedish movie and seen the actors who played the roles in the American version, but this graphic novel is much closer to how I pictured Mikael and the other characters when I originally read the books.

It's not a new story, it's been done in what seems like every different way, but I thought that the writer and artists really captured the feel of the original book. Gritty and cold and angry and the waves of hate that bounced around Henrick's family. I also liked the tattoo in it's full glory on Lisabeth's back.

Unfortunately some of the dialogue was a bit stilted (maybe it was that way in the novel too, who knows), and even though I really know the story, at points it did seem to jump forward here and there. And it's probably best that people have read the novel or seen one of the movies first. It's not exactly the most straightforward of stories. ( )

Interesting adaptation from the book. The art is typical of what I've been seeing in gritty, dark graphic novels. ( )

I’ve read the book and I have seen the US version of the movie so I wondered what the writer would do in order to condense the book down to a graphic novel. There are some changes to the story some that will change how things play out in the later books. If you are not a purist and you can stand changes to a story to fit the format then this is the graphic novel for you.

Absolutely stunning artwork. I've have read the novel and seen the Swedish and American films, and this graphic novel adds an amazing new depth to the work. Some of the storylines were tweaked slightly and some of the dialogue was confusing to pick up on, but overall this was amazing. I was a little disappointed that Lisbeth was only highlighted during the major plot scenes and would have liked to see more of her role from the novel, but on the whole it was well done. ( )

A graphic novel version of the first of Stieg Larsson's books about Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander, adapted by Scottish writer Denise Mina. It's a great adaptation, but (inevitably) quite a few details get lost and I'm not sure if I fill in the blanks with knowledge I have from the books or if the comics do stand on their own. The art is very good and the characters' looks "fit" how they are described in the original - only a couple of them look like the actors from the movie. I do have a problem with them splitting this into two volumes (of about 150 pages each) - it's clearly only in order to charge for it twice, since it would easily fit into one volume. ( )
