The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson

This is the perfect holiday read.
I found the first book in the Millenium Trilogy a little slow to start as Larsson set the scene.
I needed time to get my head around the geographical context. I had no idea where I was or who all these characters were.
But all of a sudden - wham!
I was hooked and I devoured the entire story in a couple of days and late nights.
Some of the scenes are not for the faint-hearted and the content is definitely for adults only. Highly recommended crime/thriller.

  1. The movie was great too - not as complex but it was great to see all the places talked about it the book.
    I didn't like the actor that played Erika, but everyone else came across well. The Australian scenes made me laugh, but I guess they were never going to fly all the crew across for a couple of small scenes!


I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
