The book is a good Mystery and I am very glad that I read it. However, I knew who the suspect was beforehand - but for a different reason that what it turned out to be.

Similar to what another reviewer said: The sexual scenarios towards women were a little disheartening. Even the consensual encounters, since at the end it was all just meaningless sex. However, one must take the original title into consideration, as well as the fact that the Author witnessed something presumably life changing.

Additionally, one has to wonder what Stieg Larsson would say about the World's economy today or the real estate market collapse (in the U.S.) back in 2008. Perhaps he used Enron or Bernie Madoff as his focal point for his back-story for the novel.
