ooooh, i LOVE a good mystery.
i was pretty hesitant to read this one for a few different reasons. first and second were the horrible title and the equally horrible cover art. third, i'd heard that it was translated into english from swedish and i was worried it just wouldn't make much sense. i was wrong. larsson had my attention from the very beginning. he wove an intricate web of suspense and i just couldn't WAIT to find out how it was going to end. i'll be reading the sequel asap.
update: i just read that this novel's original title was men who hate women. i'm not sure which is worse.
update, part II: i also just read that the author died in 2004, shortly after turning in the manuscripts for this trilogy. sad and creepy.
