Stieg Larsson

I just finished the final Larsson novel. It was amazing. Lisbeth Salandar is one of the most unique heroines ever. And Mikael Blomkvist is a great hero. Larsson died after turning in his manuscripts for this series. It’s sad that he didn’t get to see the excitement over the books.
It just helps me remember that we’re not promised a tomorrow so we have to keep reaching for the dream today. I know that’s a little Hallmark, and I hate using the cliché, but it fits here.
If you haven’t read the series, you should. You have to read them in order, and each is as good as the other.
1. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
2. The Girl Who Played With Fire
3. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.
