One thing that strikes me about this novel, more than any other that I've read in a series recently, is that if I hadn't read the previous ones, I would be all at sea in this one. Much of it depends on the reader remembering what has gone before. So you MUST read the books in order.
Some sites to check.
- The Stieg Larsson site
- Translator Reg Keeland's site
- The Australian Murdoch Books Stieg Larsson site
- The Stieg Larsson summary site on Library Thing gives access to hundreds of reviews. Nearly 10,000 members have listed at least one Stieg Larsson book, and the overall rating verdict is a high 4.18 with over 2700 rating between 4 and 5.
- Does the Millennium trilogy end as well as it begins? Kate Mosse finds out. This one attempts to put the 3rd novel in a perspective that includes the first two.
I'm finding some of the characters a bit difficult to track, particularly when the names look similar.
If you want some listing of characters, then you might like to read this Wikipedia set of articles.
