The first of a trilogy of books written just before Swedish author Stieg Larsson’s death, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a fast-paced mystery wrapped up in a financial article from Business Week, a manual on hacking, and a statement of women’s rights.
I loved this fast-paced book filled with wicked plot changes. And I certainly didn’t anticipate the outcome of the ending at all. I won’t give it away.
I really enjoyed getting to know the main characters, and I am still trying to figure out what makes them tick. Especially the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the trilogy.
A word of warning: some scenes are explicit descriptions of sexual violence. Might not be for the faint of heart or the easily offended.
