The books comprising the ‘Millennium Trilogy’ have achieved, albeit posthumously, almost legendary status for Stieg Larsson. Having previously delivered the manuscripts to his Swedish publisher, tragically the author died of a heart attack in 2004, aged just 50 and consequently he never witnessed th...

Series: Millennium #1 I’m not sure how to describe this book. It was mystery and a thriller and I didn’t particularly like any of the characters, but I still had fun with it. I know I complained about it at about the 80% mark but it did finish off with a more upbeat resolution so I think I can con...

This is a tricky one, since there are two different plots going on here, as well as all the background set up on the protags. Plot 1 with the financial scandals going on in Sweden was of little interest to me. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) it bookended the book, so it was slow to start and th...

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Stieg Larsson So, wow. This was so much better than I thought it was going to be. I know that people either loved or hated this but I was in the "love" category. This was so convoluted, interesting, and gripping. I have to admit the beginning was a bit dry fo...

DNF at 10%I might return to this one at a later time. It was just moving too slow for me to get into it right now. Maybe I'll give it a go when things slow down for me. But maybe not... life is short and there are so many more books to read, that don't require this much effort. We'll see.

I only picked this up to fulfill one of my book challenges, to read a book originally written in another language. I honestly didn't think this book would be for me, but it was fantastic. Definitely a pleasant surprise. I picked up the audio version and the constantly changing POV was a little confu...

For anyone who doesn't know what this book is about, well, it's a Swedish thriller type of book which is different from regular American novels of the same genre. Read with caution. I would list all the possible trigger events but there are seriously too many. For perspective, the original title tra...

We shall begin with a quote from page 630 of the mass market paperback:"Berger thought that the book was the best thing Blomkvist had ever written. It was uneven stylistically, and in places the writing was actually rather poor - there had been no time for any fine polishing - but the book was anima...

Synopsis Lisbeth Salander gets under the skin of her targets like no-one else. Those who underestimate her live to regret it. If they are lucky.... Mikael Blomkvist-disgraced journalist, womanizer-is everything she ought to hate. But when she is hired by a security firm to investigate him, her rep...
