The book is dark, depressing and full of adult themes such as murder, sexual assault and abuse, violence against women, etc. I'm not sure why I enjoy the series so much - maybe because of the setting (Sweden is a new location to read about) or maybe it's the intricate plot line and well developed (and COMPLEX) characters. Whatever it is, I love it and that's why I'm so excited about the Hollywood movie version of the book coming out next week. The trailers for the film have been fantastic and made even more incredible because of the soundtrack created by Nine Inch Nail's Trent Reznor.
I've been waiting for this movie to come out since I finished the book in August and next Wednesday is the day. Craig and I have our babysitter lined up and we are going to go to dinner and then to the movie and I am absolutely stoked. I think it will be a movie that he will enjoy as well - lots of mystery and intrigue. Either way, it will be a lovely way to start our Christmas vacation!
