I really enjoyed the characters, the flavor of life in Sweden and the intriguing story. Lisbeth Salander is fascinating! I was disappointed in the English translation...I wish I could read Swedish! Based on reviews from European friends who've read it in both languages, I agree with them. A somewhat sloppy and jumbled English translation that used some very archaic words (anon? Last person to use anon was Shakespeare!). It seems like it needed one more go around with an English-as-first-language editor. Otherwise, a fun read.
