At the moment I am reading the third volume of the Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson. I am thoroughly enjoying the books.

I want to bring your attention to an historical error in the introductory part of The Girl Who Knocked the Hornets Nest. It is stated there that Boudicca, (Buddug in Welsh) was English. In fact,

at the time of the Roman conquest there was no such place as England, the English did not exist. At the time Britain was ruled by the Celts or Britons (Brythoniaid in Welsh). The English appeared on the scene much later in history.

I cannot tell whether this error was made by the author Stieg Larsson, or was made during translation into English by Reg Keeland.

However, if another edition is published, please make sure that this historical error is rectified.

Grow up ,your just nit picking.

I assume your fact is correct here, however I'm guessing they are not going to give any thought to a fact checker that cannot even list the title of the book correctly in their complaint.
