The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was very good and deserving of its bestseller status. Dragan Armansky is–how you say–B.A.? I can’t wait to read the next books in the series.
As I read I noted how much the various genres of commercial fiction have to do with each other in terms of structure. Overarching plots and recurring, larger-than-life characters (sometimes larger-than-life in a more subtle way, as in this book). I see similarities to fantasy and science fiction, as strange as that sounds.
