Y'know, this was actually really, really good. I listened to the audio because I was warned that it starts off incredibly slow (it does) and I figured I'd be more apt to stick with it if I could be doing other things while listening. Well, by the middle I was hooked and desperate to find out what happened to Harriet.

I do wish they'd kept the original title - Men Who Hate Women, it's just so much more appropriate. I love Salander, messed-up, punk hacker Salander. I hear that it was supposed to be a 10-book series, so when I get to the end of the third book (yes, I read the spoilers) I'm going to pretend it's not really the end and that Salander and you-know-who really do end up together. The writing style is obsessive about details and borderline annoying, especially with all the brand-dropping (this review lampooned it quite accurately) but somehow I can't imagine the book without it. Be warned: there are rough scenes. Really rough scenes. Also, I watched the Swedish film and loved it.
