I’ve just finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, and I really enjoyed them, especially the third book, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. Reading these fictional stories has been a nice change of pace from the nonfiction I’ve been consumed with the past several months. I like Steig Larsson’s flawed characters, especially Lisbeth Salander. While she is not lovable, Larsson does make you sympathize with her and cheer for her to triumph in the end. It will be interested to watch the movies made from these books and see how closely they stick to the written word.
