I ve heard and read many complaints about Stieg Larsson s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo1 It s misogynistic 2 It s packed with clich 3 It s too convoluted 4 It s too disturbing5 Lisbeth wasn t autistic enough or was oolishly autistic6 There were too many red herrings and the damn Nazi red herring didn t have the usual payoff7 TooTwo many plots 8 Too hard on Leviticus I will answer these in a moment but irst I must declare that I am an unrepentant How to Be Alone fan of this book This is one of the rare times when I longor goodreads to have half grades because I would love to give this 45 I can t give it a Racial Theories In Context full 5 though because I sense Mr Larsson s series is going to grow in his last two books And nowback to the top eight complaints1 Perhaps but how can a book whose original Swedish title is Men Who Hate Women avoid misogyny It can t But at least the misogyny present is a comment on misogyny Larsson isn t being misogynist He s attacking misogyny Moreover our hero Mikael Blomkvist is not one of the men who hate women He is a pretty good guy actually inact he s one of the rare guys I would actually categorize as a good guy in most modern literature Surehe s a bad Dad Surehe has a ailed marriage and many sexual relationships Surehe makes some decisions that challenge his ethics But he remains a good guy He tries to do well in an ugly world He never succumbs to cynicism And he genuinely cares about all the people in his life Male and emale And it s not like Berger and Salander are weak women Cigarette Kisses farrom it There may be misogyny in Men Who Hate Women but it is wholly the characters misogyny those who have it and not the author s2 With apologies to my riend who s irst name starts with T Clich smich Yes there s some clich maybe plenty of clich but who cares Seriously We re not talking about Proust here We re talking about a mystery novel a serial killer who dunnit Complaining about clich in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is like complaining about pinko sympathies in The Communist ManifestoThere s communism in Marx Really You think3 7 Yep There s a couple of distinct plots here but there s a level of verisimilitude "To That Have Even Our "that Have even our lives ever had anything important happen without something else important occurring at the same time Not mine and to have multiple incidents happening simultaneously makes sense to me The search or Harriet Vanger wasn t hampered at all by the Wennerstr m drama and vice versa And to be honest I loved having a pair of mysteries solved in the same novel 4 Too disturbing compared to what It s nowhere near as disturbing as American Psycho and it s about average as ar as the serial killer genre goes Plus I think there is a power in the graphic moments of this novel particularly Lisbeth s vengeance on her guardian I am not on her side when it comes to this vengeance but I understand it and the drive to take vengeance in such a way such a human way Gutsy Girls: Young Women Who Dare fascinates me Who d have thought besides maybe myriend Manny that the Swedes have it in them5 Perhaps this is true but at this point I have only read one of the trilogy and the only person who suggested that Lisbeth was autistic was Mikael and while he thought she was suffering Organizations As Knowledge Systems from Asberger s his guess was only in passing I can cut the book some slack here suspend my disbelief suspend my disbelief6 I was stoked thator once the Nazis were a red herring rather than the ultimate degenerated evil We all expect the Nazis to be the worst of the worst so it is refreshing to see them as a deflection instead 8 Can anyone really be too hard on Leviticus UmmmmmnopeNow I admit that I might love this novel simply because it is set in Sweden After all I do love ABBA Fredrik Ljungberg IKEA my apologies gl gg Stellan
