Book review 

Reveiw of In the Blood, Lisa Unger

One of my absolute favorite book ever

Actually, I wish I could read all her books all at once"
When I just before Christmas found myself with a review copy of Lisa Unger's new book In the Blood in my hands, I had no idea that it was going to be one of the biggest reading experiences of the year. Actually, one of the biggest reading experiences I have ever had. I loved this book so, so much and read it in just a few days, for reasons I for once actually can sum up in a few short words: First of all, Lisa Unger's writing is captive, interesting and extremely well perform...

Reveiw of Blackwater, Kerstin Ekman

A poetic masterpiece

With a poetic language and a story that catches you from the first page, Kerstin Ekman has managed to write a masterpiece in a league of its own."
There’s something about Kerstin Ekman’s story about the village Blackwater and the barren nature surrounding it that touches me deep inside when reading it and I cannot really identify what it is. The atmosphere in the book is pressing, the feeling that something is wrong, very wrong grows stronger by the page and it reeks from each and every word. The river, the mire and the forest, there’s a tone loaded with anxiety surrounding the neighboring nature that reminds me o...

There has never been a character with a better developed history. There has never been a character with a better defined personality.

Lisbeth Salander, who nearly killed her own father (the creep that he was), who solved the problem of Bjurman, who allowed the torturer/murder Martin to pass out of her's and Mickael Blomqvist's life; comes to life in The girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Inside the Mind of Lisbeth Salander

Inside the Mind of Lisbeth Salander"
Lisbeth Salander's Unique Psychiatric Profile Stieg Larsson and Psychiatry re Millennium Trilogy There is a similar Lisbeth Salander in my life, so I know first-hand how complex this character is. Just when you think you've got a handle on their thought processes, they behave or think in opposition to your expectations. Sometimes these people look like pretty flowers, but when you try to pick them, you discover stinging nettles in your grasp. While it is true that Lisbeth does not fall...

My Thoughts"
Had never heard of these books until the past year when I got them at my local library one at a time & couldn't wait until I got the next one. They were obviously violent & disturbing. But they were, unfortunately, what really goes on in the world of human beings in the name of money & power. Truth as we know is stranger than fiction. Lisbeth was a person we understood was not what we call the normal person, but then who would be if we lived her life. I have to say I was rooting for her...

This one is for crime fiction buffs

there is relief in the form of a fresh clue or the chemistry between Blomkvist and his women"
All of you Millenium fans out there, you know Stieg Larsson's life story. Perhaps it is the pathos of Larsson's death and the intensity of his full life that are missing in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" the first of his trilogy. That is not to say that the book is not a page turner. It has all the ingredients of a crime thriller. A teenage girl Harrriet's mysterious disappearance from her home has not been solved for 36 years. Her grand uncle and industrial tycoon Henrik Vanger is haun...

Absolute page turner!

incredible book with such a good mix of suspense, mystery and passion"
I have just finished reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and I have to say it's an absolutely incredible book with such a good mix of suspense, mystery and passion, that it is almost impossible to put down. I have only one complaint, and unfortunately it really bothered me. I am Swedish but for many years now I have been living in Ireland, and it is the English translation which, although for the most part very well worded, was a real letdown. I have to agree with a previous review in...

I loved it !!!

Wow, what a terrific read. Salander was such an original personality"
Wow, what a terrific read. Salander was such an original personality. Troubled, brilliant and vicious when necessary. Blomkvist was an original too. Smart, compassionate and though ethical, he was also willing to bend the rules. A man all us women could definitely fall in love with. All the characters were so interesting and I loved the way Larsson wove the different stories into one another. It's a book for grown ups...mature and smart. How young to die. What is about these great ...

Wanted: An Editor

Is there a compelling detective story in here somewhere? Perhaps."
It is a pity Stieg Larsson died before his manuscripts had the benefit of the give and take of rewrite with the aid of his editors. I found "Tattoo" tedious in the extreme--whatever rhythm the prose might have developed lost in the tedium of detailed descriptions of the technical specifications for the title character's laptop computer or the ingredients of yet another cold sandwich. Is there a compelling detective story in here somewhere? Perhaps. But it is buried in extraneous prose, and ...
