If you followed Living in Cinema on Twitter, you’d already know how to win a hardback copy of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the first of Stieg Larsson’s bestselling Millenium Trilogy. All three mysteries (including The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest) have been adapted into films in Sweden and the first opens in the US on March 19. Check out Music Box Films for more on the film including release dates nationwide.

I’ll have more about it next week (I need to watch it again), but for now I’ll say that The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is a wholly satisfying old-fashioned mystery thriller wrapped in a modern, hard-edged cyber-noir package. It feels familiar and fresh all at the same time. I liked it and I think you will too. I haven’t read the books yet, but they’re high atop my list of things to read.

Ok, so if you don’t want to follow LiC on Twitter you can still enter the contest by dropping me an email:

win [at] livingincinema.com

Please note that this contest is open to residents of the United States only. The book is coming directly from the folks behind the film and that is their request.

Sometime early next week I’ll draw a random winner from email and from qualified Tweeters. I’ll contact you at that time to get a shipping address and that’s that. Could free crap be any easier?? I think not.

Also, join the Dragon Tattoo Blog Hunt for a shot to win more free stuff!

  1. I feel like one of the cage-interned fugees in Children of Men watching as the American residents walk by with copies of the book in hand.

  2. Sartre, if I win it I’ll let you borrow it…if you pay for shipping both ways.

  3. Haha Joel. I actually own the book and found it an enjoyable read.
