Jumping on the Stieg Larsson Band Wagon
I am not one to readily jump on a populist literary bandwagon. I often snobbishly think: "How good can this book really be if that many people are reading it?"
How glad I am that I caved in and finally joined the Stieg Larsson entourage. Larson's ability to weave a gritty tale is eye-opening. His writing and plot devices are witty and plausible. His characters are quirky and memorable. The weaving together of the various threads of this saga is brilliant. I can't wait to read his other two novels.
