I just read Steig Larsson’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. I heard about this on a NPR feature. It has been big in Sweden but was just translated to English. I don’t usually go for literary novels. I want a good story instead of fancy writing. So, I listened to the rave reviews and forgot about it. Then I saw it at the library.
I love this book! It is part one of a trilogy. It is very hard to explain but basically the protagonists are trying to solve a 40 year old missing person case but it is so much more than that. The book just pulls you in. Rush out and read this one.
