    I'm not surprised.  I haven't read the Larsson books, but I read a terrific Finnish noir earlier this year: Snow Angels by James Thompson.


      SNOW ANGELS actually surprised me a bit. I found it nicely written in an understated style that captured the winter ennui of the characters. Nice transferrence of the writer's culture shock to the female character.  I admit I picked this up initially for curiosity's sake -- the author is a Kentuckian living in Finland -- and came away pleased with the storytelling.
