Just finished this - I loved it! Couldn't find a thread about it. Anyone else read it?

I bought it a couple of weeks ago but haven't had chance to start it yet. I think the sequel is out as well isn't it ?

I loved it and was gutted to find that the next two of the books in the trilogy weren't available!

However, the second one is out now in paperback, and in my pile to read on holiday!

Yes i enjoyed it too. I would never have picked it up normally..but a friend passed it on.
The second one was ok...not quite as good though imo

I have just started this am really enjoying it. Got #2 ready and waiting for afterwards.

All three on Amazon BIWI

I enjoyed it too, although I thought it took quite a while to get going. Once it took off it was gripping. Must look for the second one now.

These were brilliant IMO! The second one was well worth it and when I read it at the beginning of the year I was horrified to learn that the final one hadn't yet been translated into English. Fortunately they've hurried up the translating process and the final one's out in October (not in Jan '10 as originally stated by the publishers) - pathetically, it's one of the things I'm most looking forward to in the next few months <must, must try and get out more>

gawd me too polly. I was ridiculously excited when they brought forward the date.

I'm doing an Amazon order later and was thinking of this book- you certainly recommend then ladies?

foxinsocks Sun 09-Aug-09 16:21:16

yes, good summer holiday reading. I found the first one, I needed a few chapters to be hooked but after that, I raced through them!

deaddei Sun 09-Aug-09 16:26:04

Just ordered it!!!!

Bought it after recommendations on another MN thread. A third of the way through and I'm finding it a bit clunky and obvious. Hoping it improves.

What did Larsson die of?

I only ask because during reading the second one I wondered if he had unwittingly outed a lucrative criminal underworld and had been put on a hit list! His descriptions of the illegal activities were so detailed it may have hit a nerve. shock

I think I enjoyed the first one more but definitely looking forward to the third.

I also thought it was a bit obvious, but enjoyed it anyway. Looking forward to reading the second one as I was waiting for the paperback to come out.

No criminal underworld involved in his death - Larsson died suddenly of a heart attack in his 40s.

Oh good. Thanks

I loved the first. Second story was a bit of a stretch. I can't wait for the third.

TheChewyToffeeMum Tue 18-Aug-09 19:45:49

Fantastic - I just finished the 2nd and have pre-ordered the 3rd from library. A shame he died young, I bet he had a few more good books in him.

LyraSilvertongue Thu 17-Sep-09 19:06:34

I've just finished this - thought it was brilliant. I'll be starting the second as soon as I can get hold of a copy.
I didn't think it was obvious at all - maybe I'm a bit dim grin

moonshine Thu 17-Sep-09 19:58:39

I really liked the first one but actually preferred the 2nd one (even if it was full of some major coincidences).

TwoIfBySea Fri 18-Sep-09 11:00:39

Loved it too! Second one is on the way, ordered it ages ago off Amazon and my order didn't turn up but they are resending them - I've had to wait ages rather impatiently.

I enjoyed this too. Read the second one as well and enjoyed it. Passed it on to a friend yesterday. Def looking forward to the next one.

Just finished it this afternoon. I found the first 150 pages very pondourous and far too information-filled for no apparent reason e.g. did we really need that much info on Wennerstrom's businesses at the beginning? or that level of detail on the Vanger family? I think it just needed more brutal editing and perhaps his death meant they didn't feel able to.

Really looking forward to the second - nervous about Salander's advocate. Does it get going a bit quicker? I just spent Nearly 3 hours finishing the book in bed this afternoon - a real treat!

Just finished the second one in the series - loved it! Much better than the first one. Looking forward to the last one..
