Mikael Blomkvist, a once-respected financial journalist, watches his professional life rapidly crumble around him. Prospects appear bleak until an unexpected (and unsettling) offer to resurrect his name is extended by an old-school titan of Swedish industry. The catch—and there's always a catch—is that Blomkvist must first spend a year researching a mysterious disappearance that has remained unsolved for nearly four decades. With few other options, he accepts and enlists the help of investigator Lisbeth Salander, a misunderstood genius with a cache of authority issues. Little is as it seems in Larsson's novel, but there is at least one constant: you really don't want to mess with the girl with the dragon tattoo.

Więc czyta się dalej, i dalej, i dalej. Każdą zaś stroną coraz trudniej jest się oderwać od powieści. Aż 63% ...
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.
