I was so totally into this book until about the last 100 pages. Suddenly, it seemed really forced and it just lost me completely. Maybe if Larsson were still alive, he might have rewritten the ending a bit and I would have loved this book so much more, but alas...*sigh*

I actually felt that this book was entirely too long. It actually felt boring in parts, and I wanted to skip a few pages cuz I was like "ok, I get it, Lisbeth is mysteriously flawed, let's get to the good stuff!"

Oh well. Maybe the third one will be better.

Does anyone else get super confused with all the Swedish names? I always forget who's who. And that frustrates me.

Melissa It was entirely too long...I felt they could have condensed it more! The plot is pretty good, but it was dragged on and dry. Not too sure if it's a "lost in translation" effect, or just a swedish thing? Heh...

Carrie Those crazy Swedes, lol
