See the movie before setting sail from Stockholm.

I can’t wait to see the Hollywood version of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.” Earlier this year, I watched the Swedish version, with rapt attentiveness, despite having to follow the dialogue through subtitles (in all, there were three Swedish movies based on the Stieg Larsson trilogy, known as “The Millennium Series,” and I have seen — and enjoyed — all three).

With the buzz only now beginning about the Hollywood film, I thought this to be an appropriate opportunity to introduce you to our work here on the Stockholm Cruise Blog. There is no better resource for planning a cruise to or from one of the world’s most beautiful and intriguing cities.

For example, you’ll find these resources:

And just for fun, this one too: Cruising Style 2012: Dress Like Lisbeth Salander As The World Prepares For A New Millennium

I hope you get a chance to see the movie during the holiday break, and if you’re like me, you may enjoy the Swedish versions of the Millennium series also.

I’m sure that seeing the Hollywood version will inspire me to want to go back to Stockholm. That’s not a problem. I’ll be there New Year’s Eve, indutiably amid the buzz of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. — Ralph Grizzle

    I’ve read and enjoyed the 1st 2 books and am waiting for the 3rd one to appear in paperback.  Anxious to see the movie but I don’t know when I will get that chance.  Since this is your cruise blog, can you tell me which cruise lines you prefer that either begin or end in Stockholm?  A couple of years ago there was a good one on Oceania but I have not found that one again.
