"Nerd meets thriller"
One of things that I like about this series is the rather nerdy way that the author goes into great detail about things that seem incidental such as the capacity of PCs and lap-tops, the serial numbers of bits of kit like phones and the legal framework of parts of the Swedish constitution. Once this has happened a few times, it seems normal. It's not of course but it's part of the charm.
I have loved the whole series, especially books 1 and 3 and I'm sad to have finished them all. This series is not even within hailing distance of my normal comfort zone and I'm so glad I downloaded them and gave them a chance. There are such variations in the story, with rapid pace in parts, then long episodes of slow action. But it's never dull.
"This book is a must listen"
I feel there is little point in writing the review to this because if you have come this far into the series then whether you listen to this one is non negotiable. The events of the previous book are non negotiable, it has to be listened to. Do of course make sure you listen to the two previous books. Even if you do not listen to the girl with the dragon tattoo you have to listen to the girl that played with fire. That is the book that really sets the scene for this one. If you are anything like me you will be wondering at the end if their are any more Stieg Larsson books to go through. I might have to try and raise him from the dead so that I can hear more. Having said that though I do think that he concludes the trilogy very well and it does not feel as though there is anything missing.
After listening to the first two books of the Trilogy series I couldn't wait to listen to this one to see how it all ended. The first two were brilliant - I did not want to stop listening to either of them. Saul Reichlin is a great narrator and really drew me into all three of the books. The only thing that let this one down was the ending - not quite as explosive or wow as I had been expecting. If you have listened/read the first two, this book is a must read/listen.
"Not for everyone"
Only four stars for what I consider to be the greatest introduction to modern crime construction, Swedish literature and to audible books in general. My rational being that this is relentingly dark storytelling and thus not for the faint hearted. The characters are drawn with a realism bordering on genius. With the proviso that there are some genuinely shocking moments, this is an audible book to savour, to return to and to lead you to further pleasures. It is a work of outstanding brilliance.
"Least fav of the trilogy, still a good listen!"
This was my least favourite of the trilogy and did not draw me in as much as the others. It was still enjoyable and I would recommend it, if you have read the others. If you haven't enough is repeated to ensure you follow the story.
Really good book. I have throughly enjoyed listening to it. Tried to read the paperback version but could not get in to it. Listening to the story brings it alive.
As with all of this series, this book was, as my review title suggests, AWESOME!
The story was read in true form and the narrator was excellent.
"Excellent end to the trilogy"
Another excellent book by Larson, a little difficult to keep track of all the different people and places but you get there in the end. An excellent sequel and well worth the money/credit given the length of the book
"Great audio version of a good book"
I found book 2 of the trilogy a bit of a disappointment so was unsure what to expect from this. I shouldn't have been concerned - Larsson was back on form with this. At first I was unsure about the narrator but he actually does a good job. He clearly enjoyed reading the Swedish names and locations!
"The perfect plot"
The last of the Millenium series. A rather complex plot, demanding quite a lot of effort to follow - especially with the many Swedish names of streets and people - Lots of characters and lots of details that require concentration.
But the concentration is eased by the plot that is so captivating, and by the narrator who reads at a very agreable pace, with quite clear distinctions between the characters. (at times, it can be a bit confusing, but this might be due to the fact that it is hard to choose a different pitch of voice for each of the many characters that are involved). The narrator did a great job.
I highly recommand (after having read/listened to the previous books).
