I have listened to all three - shame that there will not be more as originally proposed by the author. The narration is very good - I have read complaints about the narrator differentiating the many voices, but in defense they can't all have a Swedish accent so what else can a narrator do? I enjoyed the voices and could easily tell most of the characters apart. Like the other two, Larsson is very detail oriented and the book can get lost in those details, however I choose to see this as his style and echoes of the main character, Lisbeth. I only give 4 stars as I don't enjoy the graphic nature of the violence/sex, however without that, the main themes of the book would be left undeveloped.
The first book started slow and finished fast. The second was solid but the ending left a lot to be desired. This one simply awesome as everything is tied up in a wonderful, smart conclusion. Also through out the narrator has been wonderful. Highly recommend the entire series.
So very sad this is the last book. It has left me wanting more of Salander, Bloomquist, and Berger.
I listen to Audible books while commuting, doing housework, exercising and gardening.
I was just as hooked on this as the first two in the series. While there are some improbable occurrences, I couldn't wait to hear more of Elizabeth Salander (not sure of spelling, didn't see it in writing!). Listened to it twice in two weeks. I am sad that the author passed away and will write no more.
I've enjoyed listening to Simon Vance's narration of the Stieg Larsson trilogy. I do find the plots and writing of two first novels better than the third one but I found it entertaining nevertheless.
Great ending....series ends leaving you wanting more! It is a great loss that Steig Larsson died at such a young age.
I've listened to all 3 of the books in this series and have enjoyed each one, with this last being my favorite -- a very satisfying end to the story. From the narration perspective, the reading is in the same vein as the previous 2 books. With book 1 I sometimes found myself groaning a bit at the narrator's voices, but any objections faded over time, and by the end they were old friends. The story is very compelling on many levels -- a little gruesome at times, but unfortunately, no more so than the nightly news.
Many, many driveway moments in this book. You absolutely must have read the prior two books to understand this book but if you have you will find it very satisfying. The narration is top notch and I am sorry to see the trilogy end.
