The Girl Who Played with Fire - Stieg Larsson Sooo yeah. I really like these books. It's a little hard to make judgments, since the author died before the books were published. So, probably a lot of the crappy stuff would have been edited out. What I dislike about these books is that there are a lot of unnecessary details (like, for example, spending an entire page listing each item Lisbeth bought at Ikea). And there's a lot of random head-hopping from character to character, when honestly I only care about Lisbeth.Lisbeth!!! She is awesome! Basically, she is the reason why these books are good. She's such a complex and tortured and amazing character. These books would be amazing if they were more focused on her. As is, they're still really good, but the side plots that aren't about her annoy me. It's like "JUST GO BACK TO LISBETH, DAMMIT!"However, at the heart of these books there is something very dark and complex and intriguing. Can't wait to read Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest! This one ended on such a cliffie! :P
