- Author Stieg Larsson
I read the first of this trilogy and I wasn’t 100% convinced, but the story had me intrigued enough to attempt the second one. It’s quite different but also quite the same. The first half of the book is really just a catch up, seeing what the characters have been up to. The story itself is slow burning, and it isn’t until about halfway through that it really starts to kick in. These bits are quite similar to the first.
The plot is different though. Rather than a mystery with certain aspects of a thriller, it is much more of a thriller first. Very much shoot first, ask questions later.
I wouldn’t really be that bothered to read the third in the series except for three things: 1) I’ve already bought it. 2) I would prefer not to have just read two out of three. 3) The cliffhanger is kinda intriguing. Darn it.
