Currently re-reading.. Forgot how good it was especially after seeing the US version of book one!
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo By Steig Larsson
-This book is pretty well known and heard of by most but not many people I know have actually taken the time to read it. This series has a mix of mystery, horror, revenge and messed up love. The two main characters are a well known magazine editor and a orphaned “crazy” computer hacker. That enough should get people to read it. I will admit that the first few chapters may be dry to most if you aren’t really interested in business or don’t have knowledge of it. Once you make it past all of the business talk though the story of Lisbeth and Mikel suck you right in. The mystery of the Vanger family is definitly something you want to find out as soon as possible. Unfortunately Leig died after the third book but the ending is not a let down, just to let you know. I was really worried before I read the book but the ending worked out. There is also a movie out right now, in Swedish. The English remake of this book should be out sometime this year or next year.
