The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Stieg Larrson's international bestseller has been made into a movie in Sweden. Published in 2005, Stieg Larrson died from a heart attack in 2004. It is about a disgraced journalist, Mikael Blomkvist who is hired by Henrik Vanger to find out what happened to his missing niece of 40 years. This book introduces interesting characters such as Salander (The girl with the dragon tattoo) who is a hacker and helps Blomkvist in the investigation. It covers issues of sadism, rape, murder and twisted love morals, quite a boring start in my opinion but quite captivating after he starts the investigation.
An interesting read.
