My Rating: 3 Stars

Started slow, picked up a bit, went slow again, picked up a bit again and then went slow again.  This is in a nutshell was how I felt about this book.  It is an odd thing to say that a book is 'heavy' but that is exactly how it it can be described and no I am not referring to it's physical size.  I really had to push myself to finish it because there were just so many words.  I know, I know... it's a book of course there are words but not normally this many words.  Pointless words that could easily be cut out. Not sure if I will be reading The Girl Who Played with Fire to be honest.

However, I would strongly suggest this to anybody who enjoys crime thrillers with very detailed descriptions of every last tiny detail.
