Read this parody by Ephron; the humor will be appreciated by anyone who read the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
I got Book 3 yesterday, The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. There is a smooth transition from book 2 to book 3 from pages 5 through 15. Salander is rushed to the hospital with critical bullet wounds. Her father, Zala, the former Russian spy is also in the hospital.
From pages 15 to 36, we are re-introduced to Inspector Modig and her senior officer, Bublanski; to Gunnar Bjorck assistant chief of immigration, the man who knows about Zala; and to Erika's Berger dilemma of how to tell Mikhael and her staff that she is changing jobs. Also, we are reminded about who shot whom in book 2 and the official but false police theory of Salander as a crazy, lesbian satanist. I am moving on today from page 49.
