I'm really going to miss Elizabeth Salander!
Simon Vance really makes the characters come to life, plus you don't have to struggle with how you'd pronounce the Swedish names in your head!
If you can, be sure to read the triology in order: Dragon Tattoo, Plays with Fire, Hornets Nest.
He seems to end most sentences with a gasp. Once noticed this is very distracting (like trying to guess if he's going to do it this sentence, or is it influenced by consonants or vowels, etc.).
Harry's back from Hong Kong. He's trying to help clear Oleg's name. He finds himself immersed in Oslo's illegal drug melieu. Harry is still a very screwed up (ex)cop.
Scott Brick is an outstanding narrator!
Ayn Rand's story is excellent, and her characters are engrossing. Her philosophy is in line with mine, but I'm much less radical.
However, Ayn Rand is l o n g w i n d e d !!! Holy cow! The 3 + hour dialog by the main character in the next-to-last chapter is a killer! When Rand makes a point, then goes on and on explaining it in a different light, you just want to scream: "I've got it! Move on!"
I really wonder if she was getting paid by the word? How did this get past an editor?
