Last week a friend alerted me to an article from the New York Times Sunday Book Review (9/14/2010) about Stieg Larsson, author of the trilogy that began with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. She’d read my rant about the first book. The rest of the trilogy, I ignored. I agree with what the critic, Alex Berenson, has written, except for his comment that Blomkvist, the hero, is the only man in the story who isn’t a misogynist. Wrong. A man who neglects his daughter and consumes women to satisfy his hunger the way he consumes hamburgers is a misogynist. If you’re curious about the rest of the article, here’s the link:
