The title Millenium is for a trilogy by Stieg Larsson, which was published in Sweden after he died of a massive heartattack in 2004 (according to Wikipedia.) The series is about one journalist/owner of a magazine called Millenium, and his experience solving mysteries with the Girl of the English title. As far as I can see, it has absolutely NOTHING to do with the TV series Millenium.
The second volume will be available in January, called the same as the Swedish, The Girl Who Played With Fire.
The third novel in Swedish is "Luftslottet som sprängdes" ("The air castle that blew up"). I suppose the English title will be "the girl who blew up air castles"?
I read the first 2 in the Danish translation and enjoyed them thoroughly. The girl of the title has Asperger's Syndrom to a relatively high degree, which makes her a very interesting person - highly disfunctional and highly intelligent, with a rather interesting history, which becomes clearer in the second book. I am looking forward to the third.
As one reviewer wrote, it's a shame that he died. His books are very entertaining.
Sometimes helping Blomqvist in his research is Lizbeth Salander, a young woman thought to have Asperger's syndrome, who is under the guardianship of the state. Salander has suffered enormous sexual and emotional abuse and has withdrawn to the point that she trusts no one. Marking events in her life through tattoos and body piercings, she lives as solitary a life as possible, connecting primarily through the internet where she has "met" several fellow computer hackers. Gradually, Salander begins to respond to Blomqvist's honesty and respect for her talents as she discovers important new information about the Vanger family.
Though the novel starts rather slowly as the characters are introduced and the genealogy of the Vanger family is explored, author Stieg Larsson succeeds in creating a sense of Sweden's social culture and atmosphere as he sets up this "closed room" mystery and creates vibrant characters to carry the action.Read more ›
