I'm enjoying it. For the first time in months, I actually managed to sit down and read more than about 5 pages of something in one sitting. The characters and story are way over the top, but I like it.

Assuming you've read the original trilogy, how does it compare? Is there a noticable difference in quality/style/etc.?

One of the reviews of it says Lagercrantz is the better writer, but I'm not so sure. I can't see much difference at all. I won't say anything more in case I give away any spoilers.

It's alright, very much 'Larsson-lite'. The characters (Salander in particular) are sketched a bit more thinly than in the original trilogy and the plot's more straightforward (so far, I'm just over halfway through). Definitely less satisfying than the Larsson books but even so, not a bad read.

His partner ridiculed the choice of author to continue the series, but given that (a) she's fighting to reclaim the publishing rights to his work from his family and (b) there are rumours that it was actually her who wrote (in part, at least) the original trilogy, it's hardly surprising.

I finished that Salander/Millennium book last night and I'd have to say that overall it was OK at best. He's trying to ape Larsson's style but very clumsily, trying to make a fairly straightforward plot seem more complicated than it actually is. It's worth a read but I wouldn't rush to do it. Just started:

I 've only read about 10 pages (tea break at work) so far. I've got those two lined up, actually.

Just finished it, very enjoyable. Similar, episodic format to Lost At Sea, but with the running theme that his subjects all believe in a 'New World Order' running the world from behind the scenes, and their various campaigns to track down/expose them. Recommended.
