If you are a fan of the Lisbeth Salander books, read these. Far, far better in every way, especially in terms of believable characters. May 07, Jeanette rated it liked it It's ok. But it's too long for the plotting and the personality types too mundane for this length of intense study, IMHO.
Once in awhile you have a real firecracker man or woman that demands that level of word count. But when you have anti-social, selfish and entirely self-involved at the core even if they are in a wheelchair - it's at least pages too much of it.
Henrik comes into his own. But then again, this is a 30 year old straight man who has never slept with a woman and has finally dec It's ok. But then again, this is a 30 year old straight man who has never slept with a woman and has finally decided to get his adam's apple reduced.
And has his own minimal human contact problems too, despite being at heart a very "nice" guy. But his copy is about 50 pages too long.
Also there is immense redundancy. The phrase "neat and tidy" had to appear at least 75 times in this book, for instance. Now the good stuff.
For the first half it kept my interest and I didn't understand Anna'a murder. So I was intrigued by Jonas having spent that time in prison and his aftermath. But the second half or after they deciphered the fact that both cases were connected!
It was just about a 2 star at the most. And don't we readers always know the crimes are connected? Throughout all that interviewing to past doctors, neighbors, relatives etc. For about 50 pages there, I almost DNF. I almost considered the entire book a 2 star within that aspect being given such page length.

I wanted Hanne to have so much more wit than she has now and some friends possibly? And I am also more than dismayed at the politico she infused in this book too.
Very trite and immensely simplistic of course that capitalist product is a dupe and anyone who wants to keep their own traditions is anti-muslim are only two examples. Plus she has two sets of married lesbians and makes them into somewhat of a cliche, I think.
How do you do that?? For instance, here in this book- she makes Hanne's wife Nefis into nearly a cipher person.
Silent in the background and just a "good little wifie" who takes her folded chair into the trunk and out again and runs to get the beverages. Good God, I thought they were supposed to be enlightened or liberated or empowered within same sex marriages. Here we have two awful ones. Hanne is more a tyrant than a spouse.
You know, I hated the last few paragraphs so much that maybe it is a 2. Well, the first half was good enough plus. But in the end and full effect. Nor am I the best judge as to how this ranks with the rest of the series. Hanne is a peculiar woman with little desire to have contact with real people, apart from her immediate family.iTunes is the world's easiest way to organize and add to your digital media collection.
