Read in September, 2011

On the one hand, the mystery is relatively interesting and the 'girl' of the title is an unusual character, so I can see why so many people latched onto this bestseller. On the other, had this book not been pressed into my hands by an enthusiastic coworker, I would never have finished it. I have a good stomach for violence, but I need more than 'relatively interesting' and 'unusual' to deliberately set out to read a book with quite this much. (I rather suspected this would be the case when I noticed the sections were all headed by statistics about violence against women in Sweden.)

Potentially spoilery lament - (view spoiler)
