Mikel Blomkvist is a journalist who has just been convicted of libel. He is hired by Henrik Vanger, a former titan of industry, to find out what happened to his niece Harriet almost 40 years ago. All he has is the old information and his own intuition to go on in this locked island mystery.
I have to start by saying that I had no clue what to write for my description of this book. I thought this books was all over the place with the story. I thought it took a long time to develop the story and I couldn’t tell what the real main story was.
I wasn’t a fan of Lisbeth either. I thought she was very cold and the things she did really bothered me.
I wish it just would have been about him investigating the disappearance. Everything that had to do with his libel charge was so weird and totally unnecessary to the rest of the story. Or maybe the libel bit was the whole point and the disappearance was the unnecessary story … I don’t even know. They didn’t both need to be in the same book though.
I do plan on reading the rest of the series even though I wasn’t enthralled with this book.
