It is smart and engrossing and dark.
I LOVED this series! It was intelligent and had scenes that made me uncomfortable but it kept me reading. I loved the attention to detail and thoroughness throughout the entire series. I could not stop listening and made sure to go out and buy the hardcovers of these, too. I listened to the whole series quickly and then listened to it all over again trying to find hints and clues or little details that were off but this series was finished so neatly that it is kind of amazing really. Brilliant series!
No. The book was a little over the top.
Violent sex is not what I call a good read.
I like the part in Austrialia the best. It was almost a happy ending.
It is and the movie was ok.
Maybe in the top 3
Oh the two central characters are magnificent
This is the book that began my love affair with Simon Vance
This is a series by a truly gifted writer. The characters are fleshed out, the thrills are there, the story progresses smoothly. Don't get me wrong, it's gritty, but then it's not intended to be heart shaped cany boxes and flowers.
very, very good
James Bond series
just very good
highly recommend all 3 books of this series. Then go get the Swedish movies and watsh them all (the extended versions).
The writing is impeccable.
Simon Vance is superb. One of my favorite readers.
This is an exceptional performance of an exceptional book. You will not be disappointed.
The introduction in this book is painful!! I probably re-started the book five times in three months. I had a difficult time getting "into" it. However, once I got through that (2 hour) "hump"... I absolutely loved the book. I immediately downloaded and read the rest of the series within a few short weeks.
I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend.
The introduction of Lisbeth Salander brings a new kind of heroine to this kind of mystery. If you think Dave Robicaheaux is screwed up, you will love Salander. I did. It opened some very disturbing doors, but it deals with real subjects.
It is an excellent performance of a dark and disturbing book.
The authors attention to detail was almost neurotic, but just this side of the line to make it interesting.
I have not, but will definitely look for him in the future.
No. Due to the subject matter and the twists and turns it was better taken in parts, so as to allow digestion.
I look forward to the sequels.
Boring and took forever to get to the plot. I was not even interested until there was about an hour left in the book.
