The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I picked up "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" because I'd read a few reviews, it sounded interesting, and the Swedish author angle made it kind of exotic-sounding. Oh, and I have a dragon tattoo. That helped.

I don' tread much fiction; it takes a pretty special book to pull me in. This did. I stayed up a couple hours later than usual last night to finish it up. That in itself says something to me.

I never know how much to say about the plot in these reviews, not wanting to reveal too much. Basically: Swedish journalist, writing a history of a powerful family, decades old mystery. Well crafted and captivating.

Wish there was a 4 1/2 star rating.

Hmmm. And the dragon tattoo was the key? Intriguing! Hey- do you have a picture of your dragon tattoo posted somewhere?
