Finally finished this series. It seemed a bit odd, like the 2nd and 3rd books were just one large story, and the 1st book stood all on its own. But it was nice to learn the whole history of the main character, and I thought the ending was very well done. Not cheeky-overly happy, but it closed enough loopholes in a satisfactory way that I didn't feel like my time was wasted reading the whole series. I could definitely see how it could have continued for a couple more stories as well (apparently, there were drafts of one or two more when Stieg died). Maybe someone will finish them up. We'll see!
