THRILLER NIGHT: When a 2,000-page thriller trilogy sells 15 million copies all over the world, igniting such success that a movie deal follows, it's worth a little curiosity. Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," "The Girl Who Played with Fire" and "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest") is about to launch "The Girl Who Played with Fire" in theatres across the country, but Larsson’s untimely death at 50 meant he never saw his first book published. Tonight, Books & Books is showing "Millennium: The Story," a film about Larsson’s overwhelming success. Attendees may win movie passes to the upcoming release. 7 PM.
