I would listen again and will listen to other books by this author. The story is gritty but smoothly written and I wanted to find out more about the plot and the characters in the book.
The writing in this book is similar to Michael Connelly in his Harry Bosch series. Harry and Elvis Cole talk about LA and life in general spewing their own brand of philosophy.
It was a HUGE struggle to finish. I got lost and mixed up the characters. The characters made wild, silly assumptions. And why, oh why didn't James bolt years ago. Now that would have been interesting!
I really enjoyed listening to this book. As in the other 2 books in the trilogy, I learned much about the culture, history and laws of Sweden and this was "wrapped" around a yarn so compelling that I almost did not eat or sleep until I finished it.
I am heartbroken that this talented man, Stieg Larsson, is no longer living to bring us tales so intense that I often held my breath.
