See the interesting article by Finlo Rohrer in the BBC News Magazine for yet another take on Stieg and his posthumous success.

  1. I've got a simple question that just simply pissed my off when I bought the book.
    Why did you change the title of the book when the author expressly chose a title he wanted? what was your intention?

  2. Hello veryape,
    The UK publisher changed the title for marketing reasons, wanting to make a series based on the title of the 2nd book, which was the correct title in Swedish: hence "The Girl" series. They apparently thought that "Men Who Hate Women" sounded like a nonfiction pop psychology book. Blame them, not me.

  3. Hi Reg
    I have just read through your blog and found it very interesting.
    I found you because I am just reading Lackberg's The Preacher, but I got interested in your blog because my husband and I work as freelance Danish translators, but on academic books. It is very much a part-time, evening project for us because we are both full-time academics, but it was interesting to read about how you and your wife work together.
    With us, my husband, who is the Dane, translates into basic English and then I - who used to work as an editor in publishing - put everything together in beautiful (ha!) English.
