The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

I would like to think Mikael Blomkvist would appreciate my blog. The man is a a gentleman and a scholar. The book on the other hand reads, at times, like a snuff film.

Mikael Blomkvist is a man who was defeated and accused of liable for his comments on a well known business man, Hans-Erik Wennerström. Blomkvist was set up and now his reputation and his company were on the line. In a strange turn of events another old business man, Henrik Vanger , contacts him offering Wennerström's head on a platter if he can solve a 40 year old mystery.

The book also follows the troubled Lisbeth Salander. Salander is one of the oddest characters I have ever read. She never developed appropriate social skills and often gets into... bizarre predicaments.

The book is a good read and even though the reader will keep yelling at the characters to just go to the police you will read this book cover to cover.

How it was consumed: Audiobook.
