I was sorely disappointed in the previous book (#4) in the Millennium series. To me, it felt nothing like Stieg Larsson‘s original three, and at that time I swore I was done with the series. But I had a change of heart because I really did miss the characters of Salander & Blomkvist, and so decided to give this one (#5) a try. I was pleasantly surprised. This one was much better than the last.
