I agree with you (although I know nothing about sheep farming in Australia!), but thought this needed a heavy-handed editor to cut the book by about a third. While Lisbet Salander is one of the most fascinating characters in literature, the journalist is the most boring and really irritated me. The original title 'Men Who Hate Women' is probably more indicative of the tone of the novel and I did find some parts quite voyeuristic and left me feeling in need of a good scrub in the bath. I really couldn't bring myself to read the other 2 books in the trilogy.
THIS BOOK Was all so dramdic in a way also very good it was also remined worthie like you can make connections to it
Thank you for the recommendation of authors, I'm def going to check them out! Luckily I like to read a whole bunch of different things, but I keep getting pulled into mystery's it seems!
What is The Black Dahlia about????

It's the story (true) of a young woman in Los Angeles circa 1946. She was found dismembered and mutilated in an empty field . The crime has never been solved.

Hi everyone. I love reading Scandinavian literature and have started the "Scandinavian Invasion" book club here... plase join me if you enjoyed this book and have an interest in reading more great authors from Sweden, Denmark and Norway. :)
i read that book i went ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
I think all three books are great. each book you read it just get better and better. The first one is a little hard to get in to, till about page 80. I could not put the book down after that.
I haven't read that one yet. Is it good?
Our innability to surprise Gunner with new and exciting reading material is a testament to his vast knowledge of all things lexographical and bibliographical (are those even words?).

These books are awesome! Best I read in the last few years. Hope you like the last one, its my fave.
I am glad the U.K. and the Ausie's have a handle on it. I would think it could be somewhat traumatic to a young person.
Well actually Mimsy, I'm 28years old and have read this novel series, and now I'll probably wait for the movies instead.
Is it just me or is staying up till midnight reading not very late at all? I'm usually up until about 2 or 3am and if the books really good i can read till 5 or 6 am. Is this weird??
Nah, I can stay up reading until it's time for me to get in the shower for work. Nothing quite like an all nighter to set you up for an 8 hour shift.
