#141 - "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by Stieg Larsson

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.

My rating: 5/5

My thoughts on the book:
This book was good! I hadn't read a thriller in a while, but now I'm glad I did! It starts a little slow, but after that it's hard to put it down! In the end I warmed up to the characters & now I want to know what happens next, especially after reading the summary of the 2nd book, so I hope I'll get it soon! I recommend it!
