Absolutely fantastic book. I can't recommend this enough. It has everything - intrigue, romance, bit of violence, humour and great description. Don't be put off by the initial detailed description, as this is essential to the story and it does get going. There's so much depth in all the characters and you really get to know Blomkvist and Salander. So readable and addictive yet an intricate plot and the level of attention to detail is so pleasing. I would recommend the next 2 books in the trilogy too, as they are just as good. My only complaint is that there are only 3 in the series. (Note: There are some adult themes, so not for children)
