Re: Issues and Problems

And the posts have no date, at least I can't see it.
BTW sorry for the shortness of my posts - babies are great, but cause you to type with one hand only.

Re: The Girl... The Millennium Trilogy

I've seen only the first film, but as regards the books, I agree completely. Which seems a rare opinion, many people like No 2 and 3 better than No 1.
