3.5 stars? I guess?
I love financial books. I've read plenty of them. But the beginning setup of this book almost stymied me. After slogging through that, the actual mystery was entertaining. I was squicked out by all the violence against women (though I loved Salander's revenge). Lisbeth herself is almost superhero-like, which was annoying, but her inner musings were way more interesting than Mikhal's. I'll read the sequel but I hope it doesn't start so boring.
