    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "Painfully repetitive"
    Overall

    Begins well enough but regrettably, hits a wall during the second download and ends up going around and around --- repeating the same details from every conceivable (and rather silly) angle. I often found myself thinking - wait, haven't we covered this already? We already know this -- why is this being repeated all over again? Every single character's reaction to the same not-so-interesting-to-begin-with incident is given far too much attention. It's almost like the author was given a challenge to add 100 extra pages to a much shorter version of the story. Exasperating to wade through.

    When Peter Russell finally meets the woman of his dreams, he falls as madly in love as you can on a flight from New York to L.A. Her name is Holly. She's achingly pretty with strawberry-blonde hair, and she reads Thomas Mann for pleasure. She gives Peter her phone number on a page of The Magic Mountain, but in his room that night, Peter finds the page is inexplicably, impossibly, enragingly...gone.
