reviewed on + 14 more book reviews


This review covers this whole trilogy, just finished only moments ago. The first 2 books The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire were literally glued to my hands, I simply could not put them down.

I did not like Lisbeth in the beginning, but I do believe its what the author intended as we did not know anything about her past. Maybe it was not so much of a dislike as her being a complete and utter mystery. As her past unfolded I felt a compassion for her which grew to complete and total respect by the end of the 3rd book. I do not think I will ever hold in my hands a series as compelling as this trilogy, (by all means if you know of something please pm me)

The first 2 books were so well organized and the text just flowed. I did not find the 3rd to be quite as organized as the first 2 but it did not alter my opinion of the book, I just had to delve a little deeper and sometimes backtrack and reread portions. As one reviewer said, it was a little slower than the first 2. The author also tied up all loose ends.except for one..the sister, was expecting a storyline to develop about her.

It is so sad that death has robbed us of this master storyteller, that there will be no further adventures with Lisbeth and Mikael. The author succeeded in bringing all of the characters to life, especially these 2 main characters.

Rest in Peace Stieg Larsson..
