Book 14: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Barnes and Noble's Description:

Written by:  Stieg Larsson

It s about the disappearance forty years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden . . . and about her octogenarian uncle, determined to know the truth about what he believes was her murder.

It s about Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently at the wrong end of a libel case, hired to get to the bottom of Harriet s disappearance . . . and about Lisbeth Salander, a twenty-four-year-old pierced and tattooed genius hacker possessed of the hard-earned wisdom of someone twice her age who assists Blomkvist with the investigation. This unlikely team discovers a vein of nearly unfathomable iniquity running through the Vanger family, astonishing corruption in the highest echelons of Swedish industrialism, and an unexpected connection between themselves.

Contagiously exciting, it s about society at...
My Thoughts: So, I'll be honest I was so excited to read this book, so much hype. After I managed to get through the first 100 pages I couldn't remember why I wanted to read it. The first part was incredibly boring to me. It did get better but I can't say that I loved it. I almost gave up on it several times. I am debating whether to try again with the other two in the series.

My Grade: B-
