Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 9 December 2012
With little in the way of difference between the 2 movie adaptations I was skeptical that this graphic novel would have anything new to offer. To my surprise, it takes a bit more time to develop and set-up the plot and characters, giving the reader a better idea of what is going on. The movies tore through plot details very quickly, and not too coherently, leaving many (myself not included) a bit disorientated.

The artwork and paneling flows nicely and often draws you into the atmosphere. With many graphic novels I find myself just reading the dialogue and giving the pictures a casual glance, though here I wanted to occasionally linger on the details. The characters are brought to life rather well (Blomkvist could have a bit more definition though), especially Lisbeth Salander, a character I have bit too much in common with for my comfort, who would virtually impossible to neuter. Every panel with her is a work of art.

DC/Vertigo plan to release 2-part graphic novels of all 3 books. They're off to a good start, and despite the criticism of other readers I assure that it's definitely worth having. Forget the digital version. The Hardback is lovely and will look great on your bookshelf.
