It's much easier than you think. Right-click and simplify. The author himself cut the title of the work down from two words to just one.

...The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo...

"Lisbeth Salander is the the girl with the dragon tattoo...the heroine and central character...Larsson saw her as a modern-day Pippi Longstocking..."

Moony, have you read Stieg Larsson Millennium Trilogy yet?

If you haven't, I promise you won't reget it.

...I haven't...but the summaries I read while tracking the clues down are enticing.

"Lisbeth Salander is the the girl with the dragon tattoo – the heroine and central character in the stories – which has been described as a Scandinavian Silence of the Lambs. I find it similar in some ways to Smilla’s Sense of Snow (1992) by Peter Hoeg. Lisbeth and Smilla would make a formidable pair. Lisbeth is a genius computer hacker. Forshaw says Larsson saw her as a modern-day Pippi Longstocking (another Scandinavian punkish wild child) with multiple piercings and the ability to inflict horrific violence on men who brutalize women."

...I loved Miss Smilla's feeling for Snow, and the way Peter Hoeg writes (although you can never be sure how much credit belongs to the translator). A strange thing about Hoeg's stories is that I find the first half of each of them outstanding...I often have to stop reading and catch my breath...but then they seem to unravel, as though he's uncertain how to end them.

Thanks for the recommendation eddie. I'll order them tomorrow (they'll take a few weeks to get here). I'll let you know what I think when/as I read them. Very Happy
