Update!!! I'm nearing the end of the second one, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest, and have already gotten the last one off eBay. I absolutely LOVE the second one. I think it's much, much better than the first. I still don't know what "all that evil" entailed exactly but of course I have an idea.

Remember when you guys had that ongoing discussion for a while about rape and the writer's feelings towards women, etc.? It must be in another book thread because I don't see it in this one. But anyway, I was just reading about Stieg Larsson on Wikipedia and it says the he "witnessed the gang rape of a young girl when he was 15. He never forgave himself for failing to help the girl, whose name was Lisbeth – like the young heroine of his books, herself a rape victim, which inspired the theme of sexual violence against women in his books."

I thought that was so interesting. I really wish he hadn't gone and died! (Do we have a "Please DON'T die" emoticon?)
