The girl who girled a girl

What is with all these books? I mean, I haven’t read any of them, though I did watch the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series (the original Swedish ones, not the confusing American remakes released like, the very next year [what the hell is the point of remaking the exact movie a year later with a new cast?? Well that’s another subject..]).

Are these titles supposed to be hinting at a specific genre of thrillers? What is it? Or are they just latching onto coat tails of popular books with similar titles? It’s worth noting that the referenced ‘girl’ is rarely a girl at all. Are there no ‘the woman who’ books? Are there any ‘the boy who’ book, and are they all about grown men?
