Journal Entry 1 by Flambard from Horsham, West Sussex United Kingdom on Saturday, March 24, 2012

7 out of 10

In this instalment of the Millennium Trilogy, Salander is suspected of a triple homicide and the evidence against her is compelling. However, not everyone is convinced of her guilt and her friend and erstwhile lover attempts to prove her innocence and save her from the horrors of her past. Larsson's second book of the Millennium Trilogy is certainly better than his first. Good, but certainly not a great novel.

The issue is Larsson's lack of attention to detail. It's not that he didn't include the detail that would, ordinarily, make the fiction more believable (Salander's preferred brand of pizza for instance), it's just that some of what he did include is inconsistent with his character. Why does someone with a photographic memory need to ensure she memorises something, for example?

Of course I'll read or listen to the final instalment: it's lightweight fiction that requires little in the way of intellectual commitment.

In the mind's eye

Loved the origianl films, refuse to watch the Hollywood remake. I have borrowed book 1 in the series, now is the time to read it: then these discs will be perfect to listen to whilst I'm quilting. I will pass to a friend who is a spoken word book fan when I'm done.
