The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Stieg Larsson’s bestselling Millennium trilogy, having done the rounds through the rest of my family, finally landed with me. Having heard considerable praise from everyone that read them, I had rather high expectations.

The first of the three novels, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, sets the context and introduces the main characters of the greater story. It is also, however, an excellent investigative suspense story in its own right.

The writing is compelling and the plot brilliantly executed. Not only is the story intellectually gripping, it is also well-written and absolutely fascinating. Larsson is also a master of keeping the reader in suspense, and once started this is not a book that can be put down.
