Entertaining, but not much.
Though I hurried to read, and presumably enjoy it, after a coworker told me the fascination he had felt, I have to say that it is entertaining, a real page turner, but there is something in it that I lack from the previous three. Salander is the center again, where everything eventually converges, but I feel there is nothing new in her purpose, and I am afraid that she may end up as another world hero in subsequent stories. Maybe it is time she is left aside.
