You are either going to love it or hate it. It is not an easy book to read. The first 50 pages are terribly boring but the story picks up from there and the last 1/3 of the book is a page turner.My biggest beef with this book is how irresistible Blomkvist character is and how no woman, no matter how old they are, can help themselves by falling in love or in bed with him...how it is the women that make the initiative...how he makes everyone feel safe. Rolls eyes. Good thing that based on Cecilia's observation we know he was just ok in bed, nothing spectacular.
