Thoroughly entertaining. I like how Larsson doesn't take any short cuts in his novels. Each one, so far, is resolutely planned out, with each element of the story equally weighted with meaning. In this one, the transition from book one to book two, was deliberate, and went far to set the stage for the plot developments. When the story shifted into a police procedural, I welcomed the alternative viewpoint. I don't think I've read books as interesting as these, in this genre, in a good while.
