The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

I’ve currently been holed up reading this series by Stieg Larsson.

I think it’s amazing.  But you’ve probably heard others describe it as such.  Regardless, it is a phenomenal read, the plot line is so intricately woven that it is truly an incredible tapestry of story.

I would highly recommend this series.  But first a word of caution.  I have found each book to start very slowly.  I’m not saying they were boring or uninteresting, they just were laborious to read.  Then, boom! I would get completely sucked in and hours flew by and then I was reaching for the next book, only to be again work at reading the first few chapters.  So be aware, stick with it, because trust me, it’s worth it.

  1. When I was part way through the first book I decided to by all three for my father because one of the characters shares his name. And, we are Swedish so I thought he would like that connection. I shipped the books off and then continued reading. To my horror, I had NO IDEA the book was going to be so sexually and violently graphic! What did I send my 88-year-old father!?! Happily, he loved the books and we have had many interesting conversations about them. I agree – a tad slow in the beginning and then it grabs you by the throat.

  2. I absolutely loved the series, but I completely agree that the beginning of each book is a tad slow to start. The north American version of the first book recently came out, and while it was pretty good I am still a fan of the original Swedish version. I really hope they make the other two novels into films as well!
