"One of the books of the year."―USA Today
"Robert Galbraith has written a highly entertaining book... Even better, he has introduced an appealing protagonist in Strike, who's sure to be the star of many sequels to come.... its narrative moves forward with propulsive suspense. More important, Strike and his now-permanent assistant, Robin (playing Nora to his Nick, Salander to his Blomkvist), have become a team - a team whose further adventures the reader cannot help eagerly awaiting."―Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
"Rowling switches genres seamlessly...a gritty, absorbing tale."―People (3.5/4 stars)

"An extravagant, alien, fascinating world for its characters to explore...great pleasures."―Slate

Wow, if it wasn't for JK Rowling's name on this book it would not get as many stars. It's slow (very slow) and really pretty interesting. Read morePublished 2 months ago by R. Kilbrai
