This was not a bad book. I found it entertaining and well written. However, I thought it was basically Girl With The Dragon Tattoo light which, on the one hand, is great for YA readers who don't want to get into the full, adult Stieg Larsson series (I don't blame you, it can get pretty dark and heavy). On the other hand, for someone like me who has read Steig Larsson, the similarities get distracting. I am in no way saying this is a copy or rip-off either, it's just similar in tone and protagonist to Larsson's series.
