Third of the Trilogy Apr 16, 2013

I wandered into the first of Larsson's novels and read all three with increasing interest. The theme of violence against females is worked over hard and effectively. Don't let the graphic description divert attention from the heart of the message. The story line is easy enough to follow but a lack of familiarity with the geography of the settings slows the pace some. Of course I am now far more knowledgeable with Sweden's governing principles and the sanctity of their press than before. These are compelling, entertaining and worthwhile reads once you get started.
