I think I enjoyed the second and third books more because he followed Salander around so closely. I found her to be a fascinating character. Regarding the first book.....I enjoyed the first book more than the second. The second, IMO, suffered a bit from following The Girl around *too* closely. If he had started her sorting her silverware, I was going to call it quits...
I've seen the first movie. It was a good adaptation of the book, I thought, and I plan to watch the second movie.
I'll be grabbing the 3rd book from the library soon.
I only read the first book in the series. Good read, but those opening pages were a chore to get through. Do the other books have this same problem?

The first one slowed me down, mostly because I kept thinking that Lisabeth was the missing Harriet! I kept looking for a connection there. Threw me off completely!
I thought it was OK but no more than that, not, by far, as great as some people make it out to be. The first half is tedious to say the very least, I was well impressed with myself for sticking with it, the latter half is exciting, yes, but in some ways predictable and I didn't quite like the style in which the book is written. It was nice to have something easy to read though after all the modernist classics.
I enjoyed it none the less except for one thing. I dislike authors injecting their political bias into their novels. Larson is not as bad as Vince Flynn is, or maybe I just feel that way because I lean left myself. All capitalists are not bad guys, all companies are not evil entities and not all financiers are scum. Well, maybe all financiers are scum.
