Character Development

I'm warming up a bit on Lisbeth Salander.  She's legitimately troubled.  She had a state-appointed guardian she cared about who just had a stroke.  Her mother is in an institution.  And yes, she's whip-smart and attractive, but I'm willing to consider her three-dimensional, especially since the rest of the book is so good.

There's a sequel (yay!) but not much after that, as Stieg Larsson died a couple years ago (no!).
