dark, thrilling and fascinating
The trilogy offers a glimpse into a dark but fascinating underworld, with memorable characters, a growing web of intrigue and subterfuge, told with masterful flair. It is a great pity that this was to be Larsson's last opus.
War and Peace describes Russian society during the Napoleonic Wars through the eyes of its ruling classes, its military leaders, even through the eyes of Napoleon. It is also a philosophical treatise on human nature, society, and war. A deeply humanistic work and rightly considered a literary masterpiece.
The narrator manages to convey the intonation and emotions of a wide caste of characters without ever losing the thread. Quite a feat and much easier to listen than to read!
