Several people had recommended this book to me, and I have to admit I was a little hesitant to read it. I had looked at a review and while it sounded good, it was translated from Swedish and I just didn't know if it "would flow". WOW, it certainly does flow. I didn't have school today so I was able to stay up really late and finish it. It is an extremely good book. There are some violent scenes, but overall it is great. I can't wait to read the other two in this series. I seem to be on a kick reading books where the author died before they were published. Stieg Larson died after delivering the manuscript much like the author of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
