Overview
A New York Times Best Seller
DC Comics/Vertigo will publish the official graphic novel adaptation of Stieg Larsson's "Millennium Trilogy," starting in Fall 2012 with THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, the international publishing phenomenon. Each book in the "Millennium Trilogy" will be adapted in two hardcover graphic novel volumes.

Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden's wealthiest families disappeared over forty years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate. He is aided by the pierced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander. Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption.

The late Stieg Larsson’s slick potboiler is wildly popular in both movie and novel form; its tale—disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist and his unorthodox ally hacker/investigator, Lisbeth Salander, struggle to discover the truth behind the disappearance of Harriet Vanger decades before—is familiar to people around the world. Now it has been transformed into a graphic novel, this installment covering the events of the first half of the novel. As with the movies, translation to graphic form requires streamlining the novel, discarding details not absolutely essential to the plot. Despite a tight adaptation by crime novelist Mina, this version preserves many of the flaws of the original, the visual fetishization of Salander emphasizing Larsson’s clueless background misogyny. In addition, the photorealistic art style and attempt at dynamic storytelling, while striking in and of itself, works against the procedural grind of reading documents and computer hacking which provided the action in the novel. The resulting hybrid is not so much a reinterpretation of the original as a slightly edited storyboard. While it won’t necessarily make new fans on its own, completists should enjoy the new visual interpretation. (Nov.)
