The psychological (& sociological) complexity and empathy she shows to her characters and her extraordinary sensitivity to nature make me love Larrson's work. The narrator is more than competent, but her take on the characters conflicted with my own and thus caused me to try to more or less ignore her. This is just a personal taste and others may obviously react otherwise to her reading.

A bit of English cosy mixed into well described Swedish countryside. This mystery has lots of strings to follow and think about. While you have a pretty good idea who did it midway, or a little later, the why is very much a question. Rebecca Martinssen is a likeable character as are Velma, Annie, the folks of the police department, and even the village. The author does a great job of making you see wintery Sweden as though you are there as she slowly weaves the past into the present with flashbacks. This definitely is not a super fast thriller but it is a window on a disappearing and changing way of life.The sense of nature pervades the novel. I really enjoyed the read and am ready l q0 pqq11to start the next.
