The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Stieg Larsson

What a great start to a series! I read this book in 3 days. The slowest part were the first 70 pages full of financial information/workings that didn't really have a lot to do with the rest of the story. But once out of Stockholm, the story picked up and didn't let go. Was it about Harriet, the missing granddaughter or Lisbeth, the wounded genius? I didn't care, I was consumed when I read it. So much so that when I realized that it was the first in a trilogy and the second two wouldn't be released in the US anytime soon, I bought the other two online from an UK retail store. The two weeks I had to wait were torturous! 


Final verdict: The start of my love for Scandinavian mysteries
