The characters are very unique for a crime novel and very rich.
Like most Scandinavian crime fiction, Larsson's writing is imbued with great atmosphere, human drama and often times the tone is rather bleak.
The connections in the story are loose not really tied down and there are just too many characters wandering around through the story.
