Stieg Larsson

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - 24

This is an intriguing novel that quite rightly turned into something of a publishing sensation. As you read this it becomes very apparent that the author's own spicy life is featured to a great extent within the plot. It is a rambling, shambling book with the Swedish background giving an intriguing spin to a mystery novel of great depths and one that features characters whose flaws make them even more believable.

The Girl who played with Fire  - 25

If anything I found this second part of the trilogy even more enjoyable than the previous. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo set a fast pace but here the characters and relationships are expanded and the plot thickens in impressive style. We learn more about the central characters, but always within the drama itself and if the scenes of violence border at times on the ridiculous, this can be excused within the fine writing of the book as a whole.
