Read all 3 books as part of my book club. Didn't really care much for any of them. Whether it was the writing style or the plots that hang me up I'm not sure. Didn't find any of the characters all that appealing and the most interesting of the bunch, Salander, is relegated to the background of this one. I just don't see why the majority of people love them so much. I think I would enjoy it more as a movie than a book, which is something I rarely think when reading a book.
