One criticism about Larrson's writing in these books is constant listing and over-descriptive attitude towards furniture in particular. Did anyone else this and what do you think about it?
I personally found the details about coffee and food (like naming brands) over the top. I read the first 2 books as there was lots of talk about them, but I found them average, and couldn't be bothered to try the 3rd.
