It’s really a shame that Stieg Larsson kicked the bucket before his time, because his Salander books are by far the best reads I’ve come across in a long long time. All three volumes are exceptionally good and almost impossible to put down. I just got the third one, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest from the library, where I had pre-ordered it like a fucking fanboy. Seriously, if you are still looking for summer reading, get these books.
I just hope they find a way to publish the fourth one, but there seems to be some kind of major quarrel about the estate. Man, and it makes me weep that the series was actually planned for ten volumes!
