The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo ~ Stieg Larssen
#1 of the Millennium Series
Hook Line & Sinker ... a great read
This is an enthralling pageturner. The plot takes its time to evolve so there is a wonderful depth to the characters and a great sense of place. The main characters work well together and are certaily not "ordinary". Lisbeth is a great "damaged goods" character.
Many social issue threads run through the story and there are interesting facts regarding violence against women heading each chapter.
Settle in with a glass of Aquavit and enjoy the ride.
