I finally understand the obsession with 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo'

In order to prepare* for the December release of the American adaptation of TGWTDT (that’s how we’re acronymizing it, right?), I first wanted to watch the Swedish adaptation.

But before I could do that, I had to finish- start reading the book.

And before I could do that, I needed to find a torrent for the audiobook, because fuck me in the eye if I was going to try to read those first fifty pages again.

Unimportant story short—now that I’m almost done with the third book, two movies deep and trying to figure out how to reanimate Stieg—I get it. I’m a few years late, but I finally get it.

*Yes, prepare. I don’t have much else going on these day, so I do homework. On movies.
