Really? I thought he was more unlikable in the book, the show made him more remorseful when he killed Rodrik and displayed the bodies of "Bran and Rickon." In terms of what he's done, he's more "evil" than Cersei (who I'd argue is the most "evil" character in the book) or anyone else because he betrayed the Starks for his family who had cast him aside. The only difference between him and Cersei is a) he's done in by his stupidity and b) (Very minor ADWD spoiler but season 3 already mentioned it) he's capable of redeeming himself since he regrets betraying Robb.
