Rants and Raves: Lisbeth Salander

I didn't realize how that would come out in my first post. I tried adding a character to show which syllable is accented. oops! The last sentence should clarify.

Rants and Raves: Lisbeth Salander

Probably no one cares but me, but I wonder if Hollywood will pronounce Lisbeth's last name right. I've spent a life time listening to people mispronounce Salander. It's not a common name and few people have heard it - until now. Hollywood is not off to a good start. Twice now I've heard characters on TV shows say Sa`lander instead of Sala`nder.
It's common for people to make this mistake. If those reading this have made this mistake , consider yourself newly educated - it's no different in the US than in Sweden. The accent is on the second syllable.
