It’s been impossible to ignore the Stieg Larsson trilogy, so I downloaded the first book on the Kindle and got reading.
It’s an odd one. The story is good, intriguing, although it was never un-put-downable. I found a spoof of the writing by Nora Ephron and it’s spot on, particularly about the many similar Swedish names.
That doesn’t make it bad, though. I did enjoy the mystery aspect, and the several sub-stories were good. I didn’t really like how they solved the Harriet thing only to have a good couple of chapters left. It felt like a bit of a letdown after such good puzzle work.
The only other thing was the characters. Fascinating and intriguing, but ultimately not very likeable. Weird. I do still want to read the second book though.
