This book was excellent, and well deserving of it's reputation and success. I felt quite idiotic when I learned, well after the fact, that it was indeed the third book of the series. The narration was seamless, the storyline had depth, and the characters were 3 dimensional.
I've seldom been so sad to reach the end of a series, especially since the world knows there will be no more of these sometimes gruesome, always interesting tales of Swedish lives. Who knew a male author could be such a strong feminist? I wonder what he encountered in his life as a journalist that made him such an admirer of truly strong women. Remarkable. Suspenseful, enjoyable, the kind of read that makes it impossible to stop. I found myself getting in the car to ride just so I could continue to listen. Brilliant. So sad it's over.
I enjoyed all the "Girl" books, but I found the last one the most suspenseful and satisfying, wrapping up the characters nicely.
I was slow to get used to all the Swedish names and places, which made the book difficult for me to get into at first, but I kept at it. After a while I got used to it, and the book took off for me. Great story. I also didn't realize I was starting in the middle of a series - it might have helped if I had read them in order. That being said, I can't wait to read the others.
Quick moving and interesting. Kept you wanting to hear how things resolve. I was really glad that I had already downloaded this book when I finished book two in the series. I started right away.
Best of the books in the trilogy! Vance's narration is fantastic! I only wish this wasn't the end of Lisbeth's story...
This entire series was excellent, and I would recommend them to anyone. However, what made me want to review this audio book was the fact that Simon Vance is hands down the best narrator I have come across. He made all three books so much better. His range is fantastic. I think he definitely added to my enjoyment of this series.
