The girl who woke the curmudgeon
I started to read the third Steig Larsson several months ago when Penguin made proof copies available (I'd rather they got the books to me on time instead of the proofs but oh well..)
But I've struggled to get about two thirds of the way through and I think I'll sleep fine if I bail on it.
I'm all for blockbusters and these kind of phenomenon do give booksellers an avenue to recommend the good stuff; and I very much liked the first two books, and their limitations were minor.
Some of my feelings are better represented here.
