The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Posted in Books on February 21, 2012 by Peter L.

I finished reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo last week, and I found it to be very enjoyable. I am now starting to read the second book in the series, The Girl Who Played With Fire. Stieg Larsson is a brilliant story teller who is no longer with us, but his works are finding acclaim first with the Swedish film series, and now remade by the American film industry.

I won’t spoil it for anyone by delving into the plot, but I will say that this series is definitely worth a read. I haven’t seen the American release yet, but I anticipate that it should prove to be better than the Swedish version, which, after reading the book, I watched on Netflix. I found the Swedish movie to be quite lack luster, and definitely not a good adaptation of the novel.
