I am not one usually drawn to novels packed full of brutal and sadistic sexual violence ( not a spoiler alert but a fair heads-up which I am glad I was given when a friend lent me the first book), but I fell in love with the lead characters who are complex and quirky, messed-up and fascinating. Lisbeth is a brilliant creation and the plot thick and exciting.
Such a huge shame that Steig died before he could finish his stories or enjoy his success.
