I know everyone loves the book, and it did keep me reading, but I thought it was just ok. Lisbeth Salander was great fun to read about (it got an extra star just for her), but none of the characters really seemed three-dimensional. Blomkvist in particular was a complete drag, so boooorrring! The movie, on the other hand, which I just saw, was great! It's rare that it happens, but I actually liked the movie version better than the book. The actors, the one who played Lisbeth especially, were spot on.
