The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Mikael Blomkvist, a disgraced financial journalist, and computer hacker Lisbeth Salander investigate the disappearance of Harriet Vanger 40 years ago.
An absolutely fantastic literary achievement, the first book in the Millennium series was unputdownable. It started out a bit daunting, with various names and characters thrown at you, but after you get through that bit you really can’t stop reading. I went straight on to the next books and thoroughly enjoyed them all.
