$900 for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo


It’s interesting to see demand for Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. In June, AbeBooks sold a copy for $900 – the highest price paid so far to my knowledge. It was a first edition, first printing, of the English translation. Back in March, the most expensive copy sold by AbeBooks was for $276.

There are copies of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo signed by the translator, Reg Keeland, but prices for those books are high and range from $1,270 to $5,090. I wonder if someone will pick up a copy – at least the translator is getting some exposure for, what I’m sure is, a tough job.
