Finished “Girl with the Dragon Tatoo” by Stieg Larrson finally. I started reading it in June. It was OK and more than once I thought it was talking a lot more time to develop than it needed to be.
And then I saw “The Girl Who Fixed the Umlaut” in The New Yorker by Nora Ephron, which was a very funny version of how I felt. I really enjoyed this line: Salander opened the door a crack and spent several paragraphs trying to decide whether to let Blomkvist in.
