It’s hard to believe Larsson was the second best selling author in the world in 2008. There were some nice parts of the story line and Lisbeth is a compelling character but almost all the other characters were dull and the dialogue was often wooden or plain unnatural. Time and again he proved that he didn’t understand the technology he refers to, even the basic stuff (despite appealing to the tech audience). Finally the political propaganda was a bit too much – every woman was brilliant and most of the men were pigs, etc.
