    "Excellent"

    I found the characters and storyline gripping. A bit grizzly in places though! Great narrator. Looking forward to the next in the series...

    "Uncompromising, Unusual, Unforgettable"

    First off, see the Swedish film first. The film is great but I think if I had read the book first the film would have slightly irked me because of a few character changes. Reading the book second really adds to the enjoyment as you notice and love the little changes. At times graphic and often gripping I found it absorbing from the first - starting with intrigue evntually into a thriller with odd couple buddy movie feeling, yet unlike anything I have read before. Cult status deserved.

    "It got a hold of me"

    Once started I just couldn't stop. A great way to spend the hours out walking the dog.

    "Two stories in one"

    One story wrapped in another, so just as one finishes, the other kicks off. A gripping story with interesting characters and an interesting figure-out-who-done-it puzzle.

    "Swedish sub culture"

    This book introduces us to a Swedish subculture we were previously unaware of, unless we ?re fans of Wallander. The mix of a high profile journo and gothic savant is compelling and irrestible. As individuals they are impressive . As a team they are unbeatable. The story is both original and exciting. It is a long while since I was so engrossed in a book Superb!

    This book was really slow to begin with but once you get into it it really captures you on so many levels.

    "Great Book"

    I found this a little difficult to get into and to work out all the characters, but after about 30 minutes I was hooked. This is a fantastic read. It is gripping and you don't realise that the book is so long. Fantastic.

    "Hard going"

    As this book is so popular i thought that i would give it a go, and am still trying to get through it months later. Am finding it a struggle to follow, the naration doesn't keep me engaged as with other books I have bought. When I read a review saying that Stieg Larsson shows Dan Brown how it should be done I bought it, i have listened to all of Dan Browns books and thoroughly enjoyed them, but this has just not gripped me. I will get to the end of it purely because I have bought it.
