Can Someone 'Splain This?
Can someone please explain to me how it is that I can be sitting here in a Bookstore right now and look to the left and right of me.... well, not quite -- to the left and then sort of MORE to the left and see display after display of Stieg Larsson things?
Is this the new J.K. Rowling of adult fiction?
Sadly, this author is deceased since 2004, but nonetheless raising quite a posthumous kafuffle among bookreaders. According to an article I happened across, moments ago -- his "Millennium" trilogy of books: The Girl Who Played with Fire, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo..... are respectively # 1, 2 and 3 on the Amazon.ca Bestsellers List for the week ending July 13th. [a Tuesday? Go figure!]
Anyhoo -- it's got me scratching my head. Has anyone read these books?
On a side note, it all bodes well for a novel I myself have been writing for upwards of a decade now --> The Girl Who Would Never Go Out with Me.
