Loved it. Was slightly put off seeing every Tom, Dick and Harry reading it on the train but now I can see why they were so engrossed!
Won't do a spoiler but would really recommend to anyone who likes thriller/crime type books.
I'm half way through the second one in the series now… Read Full Review

Lots of pompous reviewers trying to write like they are reviewing for The Times which is quite annoying - oh, and paraphrasing the main elements of the plot is not a useful mechanism for those wishing to help would-be readers. Suffice it to say that this didn't become the most spied book on the daily commute without a good reason. It's well written, with believable characters and an immersive plot. I thoroughly enjoyed it… Read Full Review

I bought The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo after seeing all the advertising in bookstores and was intrigued by the idea of a crime novel set in Sweden.

Although it is also a hard back version which perhaps put me off. How weighty it is with 533 pages! Yesterday I began and just kept going all afternoon and evening.

There have been some seriously mixed reviews about this book, The Girl Who With The Dragon Tattoo, which seem to centre on what people are expecting from it when they by it. It's been tagged as a thinking person's crime novel and so I think a lot of people have bought it expecting it to be a serious piece of literature. While it is definitely one of the best crime books I have read, at the end of the day it's still a crime book and anyone who doesn't usually like the genre should probably steer… Read Full Review

Knopf, Sep 2008, $24.95
In Sweden financier industrialist Hans-Erik Wennerstrom successfully sues Millennium magazine financial journalist Carl Mikael Blomkvist for libel and defamation of character. Mikael cannot believe he lost as he thought his proof was solid that Wennerstrom had used state funds intended for investments in Poland in an arms deal. The reporter refuses to appeal; he will serve his ninety days in gaol and… Read Full Review
