The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets' Nest

I came to this with some worries, having read the books as well as some fairly critical reviews of this film in the press. Previously, I gave 5 stars to Fire (2nd film) but seeing Hornets only confirms my opinion that this trilogy of books (and cinema loves a trilogy) deserved a TV adaptation with 45min-1hr episodes, in order for Larsson's stories to be given the best and fullest treatment. This is particularly true of Millennium II-III, which are in effect separate from the first story (Tattoo). With more time, more subplots and, importantly, more character development could have been achieved. As it is, the final film is at times exciting but often drab. Fact is, on screen, even at 2.5 hrs, you really can't adequately get inside the conspiracy surrounding Salander or in fact accept it. Dramatically, it's a bit dull, with lots of chats and some feeble attempts to imply stress or emotion. As with the previous films, much is left out: the complexity of Berger & Blomkvist's relationship and his other romantic attachments are avoided entirely; Berger's other job and her stalker plotline is expunged. The ending is changed slightly as well, in a way which is a tad unsatisfactory. On screen, lots of bespectacled and beardy old blokes appear and it's not always easy to follow just who they are. In contrast, reading the novel is an engrossing experience, as Blomkvist rallies Lisbeth's motley band of friends and colleagues and the campaign for her defence gathers all the force of a tornado (much like the one in Fire, the novel - another episode cut in the filmmaking). If you've come as far as Fire on film you'll want to stick it out to the end, especially if you haven't read the books. I can only say that I started with the films, moved onto the books, and much preferred the latter.

The Girl who kicked the hornets' nest

This is a very well written, which draws you in to the story and makes it hard to put down, the story is different although a little predictable and not that compelling. It seems to be more of a trendy read.
