Susanne (heysus74) What did you think of "The Girl..." books by Stieg Larsson? They've all gotten a lot of press and praise, but I've been putting off buying them. Worth the buy or just a borrow from the library?

Heather (coateshl) I really enjoyed them, the first two more so than the third. I read the first two back-to-back several months ago and just read the third book. The last book was my least favorite because it felt like closure for the sake of wrapping up all the loose ends. The characters felt more remote, maybe because I was less engaged. Definitely get them through the library first, then buy them if you think they are re-readable.
