Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy has become” the publishing phenomenon of the young century, with international sales exceeding 45 million,” according to a very cool story in today’s Los Angeles Times by my former colleague Scott Timberg.

He writes that Larsson’s books have managed, in the 25 months since the first novel’s U.S. publication, to go through almost 200 printings here. And next month, publisher Knopf will release its UPDATE: Here’s the link to the NYT’s review of the Hornet’s Nest movie.

    Oooh, that illustration is so lovely. I haven't read the books, but have seen the first two films and thought they were wonderful, even though I closed my eyes at parts. I'm not entirely sure they need an American remake and I'm a little afraid of what Hollywood will do them.

    Someone asked me recently, what who why? I said, "I read a lot. I've never encountered a character like her before. It's new. That's rare."

    I enjoyed these very much…they're smart. I will read your colleague's article definitely.

    I tire, though I really really really do..of anything to do with O & Oprah. I just had to type it. Can't help it. It seems like Oprah & O – they start squealing about things that the rest of the world has been on about for ages. I've wondered about this…

    i have for long wanted to read these series…but haven't been able to because textbooks take up all my time.
    i have seen the movies though, and i can tell that the book must be better.
