really liked it
Read in April, 2012

I didn't want to like this book. We'd seen one of the movies a year or two ago - the Swedish version, I think - and I didn't enjoy it at all. But, I wanted to know what all the fuss was about, so I picked the first book up on audio CD and really enjoyed it.

The plot unfurls slowly, but the character development and story line kept me listening. I like Lisbeth Salander - she's a tough, take no prisoners kind of gal. A bit crusty around the edges, but that's understandable given her history. Mikael Blomkvist was a bit tougher for me to cotton on to, but I was rooting for him by the end of the book.

A good mystery / crime novel, overall. I'll look forward to listening to The Girl Who Played With Fire.
