A bit more about that book.

Interestingly enough, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was originally called Men who Hate Women. In Swedish, of course, but that's the title. The Girl who played with fire was called that in the original, and then the last one, The Girl who kicked the Hornet's Nest was The Air Castle that Blew Up, which maybe makes more sense in Swedish. Is that castles in the air? Or more literally those bouncy castle/bounce houses for kids?

I guess when they translated them, they sort of re-branded them with the emphasis on the girl in all the titles.
