I remember not liking the third book in this series, The Black Path, and I almost didn’t pick this one up. I am so glad I did.

I loved this book.

I was kind of shocked how the story starts out, with a ghost? I didn’t like it at first, it was too much I think, a ghost narrator. (I wasn’t so keen on The Lovely Bones either.) But I stuck with it and was not disappointed. So yes, ghost narrator was a bold choice, and I’m not saying that it worked, really, but the story was so compelling that the ghost bits didn’t kill the story.

I liked how Anna-Maria and Rebecka work together, and that dramatic things happen to both of them. They share the spotlight. The bad guys were really interesting characters as well. Again Ms. Larsson makes you feel a bit of pathos for the bad guys.

Good characters, good story, and a really good length. I’m going to say that out of all four books this one is my favorite.
