Nothing at all like Dragon Tattoo. Picks up where "Played with Fire" left off; yet has a different feel. I loved all three books but think this one may be my favorite.
I loved all 3 of these books. Then imagine my dismay when I found out that the author was no longer with us :-( But start with the first one, The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo and read them in sequence. I trust you'll love them as much as I.
You really need to have listened to the first two books, to know and care what is happening in this 3rd novel. The author developed the characters so well that after listening to the first two books I could not wait to listen to this story. I did find the fact that there were so many characters in the story with similar sounding names a bit confusing. Thank goodness for the great narration from Simon Vance!!
I have just relistened to the whole of this download for the 2nd time - now thats what I call credit worthy. Start at book one and listen to all three, this is a glorious ending to the trilogy - you won't be dissappointed.
this story had quite a few unrelated issues and a lot of characters to keep track of. unless one reads all three back to back, it can be difficult to keep track of. i score it a three because there is a lot of imagination and also the translation
Well written and a wonderful reading of the third in this fantastic and original series by Stieg Larsson. Audible offers the selection at a terrific price, too.
any thing written by this person is awsome....some of the books take a little time to get into it....but just keep reading...i love them all and wish i could read some more of his books...but alas he has died awsome books just awsome
this book picks up exactly where the last book left off. if you havn't listened to the girl who played with fire yet, then the opening of this book will be very confusing. go get the first two books and listen to them first. then this book will be as understandable and undeniable as the first two. this book starts out as a spy thriller and murder mystery blended into one. those two elements are the driving factors here with some high tech cloak and dagger for spice. for the climax, it changes completely into a court room drama before reverting back to a personal drama for the finale and epiloge. get all three "girl" books. and don't be suprised if you feel like one listen wasn't enough.
I was new to Larsson's "The Girl" series when I bought and listened to this, the third installment. I liked it very much so I then listened to the one that came before and eventually I will hear the first one. It turns out that had I taken the time to check I would have found that the books make up a trilogy and thus each book builds towards the next and should be taken in order. Listen or read tattoo first and then fire and last hornet's nest and you will enjoy the series, at least in my opinion, much more. The books are well written with interesting storylines and the narration is great. There is a good amount of explanation of certain aspects of politics and historical events but not being Swedish I had no clue and found the information educational and providing a framework for the storylines.
