More Action than JacksonThat's right, say it, accept it, believe it. Everyone you know is reading the Stieg Larsson "Girl Who..." novels this year. Yes, they're crime/mystery; yes, they're good; yes, they're filled with hilarious street and town names and characters who fell out of the consonant factory too early.
Anyway, I'm here to say it up front: Mikael Blomkvist is a bronze god of writer-mojo idealism! And, he's definitely my homie. I'm making a bracelet that says WWBD (What Would Blomkvist Do).
The answer, as some of you have already pointed out on facebook and other sites is to schtup everything that walks. I could handle this in book one when he basically worked his way through the female characters in the book, handle this when he did clean up in book two by finishing off the job on the one woman he hadn't slept with in book one. But now, in book 3 (The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest), Larsson has elevated him to god status. Ridiculous? Very. Funny. Yes.
