The Salander Look


The cover for the movie tie-in editions of The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo is much darker and moodier than the original, although still retaining a bit of that distinctive yellow. It is being released in trade pbk (9780307949493), mass market (9780307949486) and audio (UNABR., 9780307989550). The movie adaptation arrives Dec. 21.

To bring to life the look of Stieg Larsson’s goth punk computer hacker heroine, Lisbeth Salander, director David Fincher chose rock star stylist Trish Summerville. Soon, you, too, can get that look. Summerville has designed a “Dragon Tattoo” line of clothing for the Swedish-based (how appropriate) retail chain H&M. The line launches online and in stores on December 14th.

A new extended movie trailer gives a sense of the movie’s mood.


Rooney Maura, who plays Lisbeth Salander, adopts a softer style for the Nov.Vogue cover and photo shoot (we detect a dragon cleverly embroidered into the back of her dress).

The story explores how she won the role, despite strong objections from studio execs. (they thought she was “too sensible”).
