Excellent!

I just couldn't put this down...in the last 24 hours I've found myself finding excuses to iron clothes, wash the dishes, sweep the porch etc etc - any mindless task as long as I was left alone to listen to this book. And I am not a mystery/suspense fan. I normally go for high quality literary fiction and dramas.
The story, like the first book in this series, centers on the brilliant but antisocial computer hacker "The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo" who becomes mixed up in a series of murders, and so the suspense builds. But it's not just the gripping storyline that makes the writing excellent but rather the characters who are interesting and multi faceted. I'd say that this second book in the trilogy was even better than the first which I also liked. It can be read separately and understood perfectly well although I'd advise reading them in order if possible. The narration was really good - he managed to get his tongue round the difficult Swedish names that I promptly forgot (I had to rewind a few times as the plot gets quite complicated in parts). He also acted out an impressive variety of different accents and voices for the different characters.
The abridgement was seamless - had the unabridged version been available I would have taken it as it would have afforded me more hours of pure pleasure listening to this book.
In summary, first rate for its genre - even if you're not a suspense fan you won't regret trying this one. Roll on Jan 2010 for the next part!

What the hell

I am sorry I have had to give in.... WHY is the narrator using stupid Cockney and Yorkshire accents to play the leading characters when all the names are swedish

The voiceover ruined this book

Excellent!

I loved The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and was anxious to get the second book of the trilogy, so when I saw it was available I inmediately downloaded, the only dissapointment that it is the abridge version, hope the unabridge it's avalaible soon.

Maybe the book is fine, the abridged version isn't

After listening to the first book in the series (The girl with the dragon tattoo) which I enjoyed, I went ahead and listened to this one. Like I said in the title maybe the book itself is just as good as the first one, but the abridged version is very bad. It mostly feels like reading a book for children (in terms of details, and complexity).

I would not recommend this, and I won't buy the last one in the series as it is only currently available abridged.

One last note about the narration, if you listened to the first book, it will take you quite some time to get used to the narrator, it's not that it's bad, it's just very different.
