The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Stieg Larsson This book took me awhile to get through. It wasn't that it was horrible, it was just very hard to follow along with the premise. I think because of the fact that it was so submerged in Swedish culture - which I know nothing about - that I found certain parts hard to follow along with. For me the book didn't really pick up speed until the two main characters finally interacted with each other - which was about page 300 or so. The ending pissed me off though.

I will say that the author did a good job of weaving such an elaborate web of lies and mystery that you really had no idea what was going on until the very end. I will say that I knew Harriett was alive, however, the circumstances surrounding why she disappeared were actions that I never even thought of - nor do I ever want to again.
