Holy crap what a story!! This was amazing. I was completely glued to this book, and I don't usually read thrillers except for a select few. It was a little slow going in the beginning. I think Larsson wanted to give the story a very solid foundation by covering a lot of past events that were important to the story line's present. I'm looking forward to reading the next novel in this trilogy because the ending kinda left me hanging. So for anyone who has been thinking of picking up this book because of all the hype but hasn't yet... do it!
