The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
I didn't like this thing about all the women wanting to sleep with Mikael Blomkvist. I suspect this was more Larsson's wishful thinking. And then he created a character who got what he didn't get. I feel a bit disgusted by that. I can now understand the critics who said the first book was misogynistic.
But then again I didn't notice that when I read the first book and I read a couple of reviews while reading this book that mentioned this. So am I influenced by those reviews or have I developed my thinking? (I'm definitely getting a bit more feminist while I grow older). I'd say a little bit of both. So that whole 'every woman wants Blomkvist'-shtick annoyed me a bit.
For the rest it was a fairly good read. I will not actively go out to find the other books, but I won't turn them down either when one happens to cross my path.
This book will now go in the bag for the Castricum bookcrossing-meetup we will have in July.
