Continuing my series of cover opinions about the 2010 International Dagger shortlist, this time it's the turn of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest by Stieg Larsson, tr. Reg Keeland.
So what are you thoughts on the US (LHS) and UK (RHS) covers? Which would entice you to pick the book up if you were not familiar with Stieg Larsson? (Note the location of the apostrophe in each case...)
(I've had a number of people come into the library having read #3 first and then reserving the first two.)
Here is the Euro Crime review by Maxine of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest.
Here is an article on the process behind the design of the US cover of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo which is in a similar vein to the above.
