The Girl Who Played With Fire - Stieg Larsson Finished this in a couple of days, another e-book from Kobo. Tried it several months ago but gave up after 50 pages or so, as a library book. Just more of the same. His writing badly needs editing. There isnt much style either, but the plot line once established really is the thing that moves you along. The details of the grocery lists and household inventories need more “etceteras” rather than comprehensive recitations. And the sadomasochistic sex themes get tiresome. But still — it’s a great page turner for a summer read!
