Lisbeth Salander’s Ikea Purchases From “The Girl Who Played With Fire”

In The Girl Who Plays With Fire, the second book in the Stieg Larsson series, off-kilter heroine Lisbeth Salander blows major cash in an Ikea shopping spree (it is Sweden after all). Apartment Therapy has compiled (nearly) all of her purchases into this handy image based on the product details revealed in the book. The only thing we would have done differently is throw in a Billy’s Pan Pizza for fun (even though you can’t buy Lisbeth’s favorite frozen food at Ikea). [Apartment Therapy] Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Predators,” “Winnebago Man,” “Despicable Me,” “The Girl Who Played with Fire”

I guess it’s been a crazy heatwave in the rest of the country, while it’s a chilly 64 degrees out here in Los Angeles. So, while I go to movies two to three times a week because I’m addicted to them, you guys are probably desperate for an escape from the heat. But I shouldn’t have to tempt you with air-conditioning and delicious buttery popcorn to get you to a movie. Some of this week’s movies are decades in the making and deserve some attention! There are a lot of slightly to very terrifying films on the roster, including “Predators,” “The Girl Who Played with Fire,” and “[REC] 2″ and there are two slightly less scary, more hilarious movies with “Winnebago Man” and “Despicable Me,” which I totally thought came out last week.

Crave: “The Girl Who Played With Fire” By Stieg Larsson

Summer is the perfect time to indulge in a trashy chick-lit beach read. During the boiling months of July and August even contemplating taking up a serious novel makes us break a physical and mental sweat. Unless, of course, said book has the unusual yet magical combination of serious literary street cred and “Twilight” silliness. If you have yet to read Stieg Larsson’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” drop whatever you are doing and sequester yourself for 24 hours while you read one of the best murder mysteries ever written. Now you are prepared to read the sequel to this fabulous Swedish novel, “The Girl Who Played With Fire,” available today, July 28. Prepare yourselves for a full-throttle adventure involving lovable misfits, oddballs, organized crime, long funny Swedish words and piles upon piles of herring. Sit back and relax and enjoy a tale that is at once engaging, insightful, and educational, but most importantly for summer: fun and impossible to put down. [$25, Amazon.com] Keep reading »
