I wandered into the first of Larsson's novels and read all three with increasing interest. The theme of violence against females is worked over hard and effectively. Don't let the graphic description divert attention from the heart of the message. The story line is easy enough to follow but a lack of familiarity with the geography of the settings slows the pace some. Of course I am now far more knowledgeable with Sweden's governing principles and the sanctity of their press than before. These are compelling, entertaining and worthwhile reads once you get started.
I don't often get so intrigued by a series story as I did with Stieg Larsson's. I am so glad they have started the movies, and I hope they make the whole series into movies. The characters are so fascinating and like no others I have read.
I purchased this as an audiobook, because I do a lot of driving. I think it gives an added dimension to the novel to hear it : the different "voices" allow one to better imagine the characters & how they should "look" if met in real life. Like many others, I could hardly wait to get back into the car ...
