The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo -

Seldom has a book been hyped to the extend as the Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson. I can not say I have been unaffected by this, since I went and bought the books. The first one, The Girls with the Dragon Tattoo was my favourite because of the closed room mystery which was presented. I have a soft spot for those.

It actually took me some time to figure it all out, especially due to quite some red herrings, but the interactions between the two main characters made the wait worth it. Lisbeth is of course the real main character of the series and has become a prototype for the strong female protagonist.

It's All Fun and Games Till The Cat Says Differently
Geek with the Cat Tattoo - Theresa Weir
3.5
Cute romance with a meddling cat who has some mystical powers. I knew there was something up with those furry beasties ! Anyway this kitty is messing with owners minds, moving through them looking for that one who will be his. After being thrown out by super duper jerk he wanders down busy streets until he meets a introverted nerd desperately in need of a cat intervention. He likes girl but is too shy to act on it. There is a lot more happening you'll have to read about it. I enjoyed it, the characters were well formed. I'll read more from this author

Future Japanese mystery reads
The Moai Island Puzzle - Ho-Ling Wong,Alice Arisugawa
The Devil's Disciple - Shiro Hamao,J. Keith Vincent,Hamao Shiro
The Ginza Ghost: and other stories - Ho-Ling Wong,Keikichi Ōsaka
The Tattoo Murder Case (Soho crime) - Akimitsu Takagi
All She Was Worth - Miyuki Miyabe
The Devotion of Suspect X: A Detective Galileo Novel - Keigo Higashino,Alexander O. Smith

The Tokyo Zodiac Murders makes me want more Japanese mysteries. Sadly, that appears to be the only book by Shimada translated into English, and I've already read everything available in English by Yukito Ayatsuji, the first similar author that comes to mind.

 

It looks like The Moai Island Puzzle and The Ginza Ghost are my best bets for mysteries similar in style to Shimada's book. The others in my list also seem like good possibilities, although not necessarily similar to The Tokyo Zodiac Murders in style.
