DC Entertainment is pleased to present the official graphic novel adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium Trilogy,” brought to life by best-selling mystery novelist Denise Mina and illustrated by Leonardo Manco and Andrea Mutti, with a spectacular cover by Lee Bermejo. 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 corruption in this extraordinary adaptation of the first half of the international best-selling novel.

    Not for the faint of heart, this adaptation follows through on all of the novels major themes, including extreme images of rape, sexual exploitation of women, Nazism, and the moral bankruptcy of corporate society. If you have a strong stomach, and want to experience a beautifully rendered tale of a horrific series of events, this is the book for you. Read Full Review

    If you're looking for insight into the adaptation process or anything of a behind-the-scenes nature, you'll be sorely disappointed here. There's zero supplemental content, unless you consider an ad for Book 2 something worthwhile. The book design, however " including Lee Bermejo's fantastic cover -- is something to be commended.

    In fairness to this adaptation, "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" is a good book that sets the bar very high. Unfortunately, and for a variety of reasons, this graphic novel doesn't come close to the quality of the original, or the film adaptations. Read Full Review
