Reader Review: I'm glad I read the books before seeing the films. Once this one gets going, it keeps you turning the pages, and the ending isn't what you expect at the beginning. If you haven't read it yet and enjoy action books, give this one a try.
An international publishing sensation, Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo combines murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue into one satisfyingly complex and entertainingly atmospheric novel.
Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden's wealthiest families disappeared over forty years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate. He is aided by the pierced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander. Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
A Friday in November
It happened every year, was almost a ritual. And this was his eighty-second birthday. When, as usual, the flower was delivered, he took off the wrapping paper and then picked up the telephone to call Detective Superintendent Morell who, when he retired, had moved to Lake Siljan in Dalarna. They were not only the same age, they had been born on the same day–which was something of an irony under the circumstances. The old policeman was sitting with his coffee, waiting, expecting the call.
“What is it this year?”
“I don’t know what kind it is. I’ll have to get someone to tell me what it is. It’s white.”
“No letter, I suppose.”
“Just the flower. The frame is the same kind as last year. One of those do-it-yourself ones.”
“Same as always, all in capitals. Upright, neat lettering.”
With that, the subject was exhausted, and not another word was exchanged for almost a minute. The retired policeman leaned back in his kitchen chair and drew on his pipe. He knew he was no longer expected to come up with a pithy comment or any sharp question which would shed a new light on the case. Those days had long since passed, and the exchange between the two men seemed like a ritual attaching to a mystery which no-one else in the whole world had the least interest in unravelling.

Better Than The Movie!

I suddenly found interest in the book after watching the movie. And I have to say... The movie doesn't give the book much justice. A lot of details pictured out in the book didn't match those presented in the movie. Just when you think the movie entertained you... Think again. The book is the real deal.

I don't understand how these books became such a sensation. They are not particularly well written, or interesting, and rely instead on the occasional bit of shock value to hold interest. I managed to plow through the whole thing but at the end of it all really wished that I had spent my time reading something better. I'm not sure who the audience really is - it's too slow moving to appeal much to pulp fiction fans, and too poorly written to appeal to literature fans. I'll give it three stars as I managed to finish it but frankly, there is so much better stuff out there.

A good detective story that involves a dysfunctional family, serial killers, rape, sodomy, incest, animal torture, patricide, corporate corruption as well as a few twists and turns along the way.
In other words just your typical Swedish mystery-romance novel.
But don't let me discourage you ... it really is quite good. But, if you are squeamish ..don't say I didn't warn you.
