This book is a roller coaster ride - from the start I wasn't really sure about it and set it down often.

Then the whole issue of righting the wrongs done be people in extremely high positions of power came up and I was hooked.

I loved the character development in this book - the distant and sometimes violent Lisbeth Salander soon became one of my all time favorite anti-heroes. Her ability to justify some wrong doing (she makes a living as a computer hacker) is juxtaposed with her utter hatred of any crime by people in positions of authority.

Her way of "handling" things was memorable...looking forward to more in The Girl Who Played With Fire.
