Saved in Translation

As British crime-fiction readers are about to discover, the title of the third book in Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium Trilogy,” originally translated into English as The Air Castle that Detonated, has been changed to The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest.

I’ve been told by many lovers of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire that they hated the Air Castle title. Guess somebody got the message ...

The titles say quite a lot about whom the readers see as their favourite protagonist :D
