Simon Vance is one of my favorite narrators, but even without his expert reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo would have been excellent. The story is fascinating, and you never know quite in which direction the author is going to take you. The family that our protatonist investigates may be THE most disfunctional family ever!
I really enjoyed this audiobook, so much that I had to ration my listening time so it wouldn't end so soon. I can't wait until his other books are translated.
I was more than possitively surprised with the book and more surprised to give a book a 5 for the 3rd time ever. Although the technology part is a little outdated it did not decrease the book appeal. Girl with the Dragoon Tatoo had a little of all, but its main attraction is the different approach to the well traveled roads. I would read the other two books right now if they were in language I knew better. This book will keep you guessing and will leave you hungry for more but will spoil all the run of the mill books.
Enjoying life by the sea in St. Augustine FL. Started listening to books on cassette and in 1995 over the radio, hooked ever since!
Enjoyed every moment right up to the excellent ending.
This is an excellent book. The characters are multi-layered, and very real. The each come with their fair share of flaws and gifts. The book is intelligent, complex and well paced. The author shows a delightful respect for the reader. The story line not linear, and that makes it all the more fun.
read very few books of this type. amazed at the warmth, humor and character development of the swedish author. most of the american mystery/cop/PI writers are pathetic by comparison.
This is a solid, well written book that kept me listening. I've only given it 4/5 stars because I save those 5 stars for books with beautiful language and imagery, but this is a book with a great plot and good characters. Some might say it's slow, but I'd call it methodical. The reader was good too.
At first, I did not think I could read this book. Since it takes place in Sweden, it is hard to understand names and places. However, after a short time into the book, the character development and plot had me. This is a very well crafted mystery. Great read, just be patient initially and you will be rewarded. Highly recommended.
