The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson


Wow- finally read this, and it really was fantastic. The rave reviews, etc. that I had read hadn't somehow made me realize how dark this was, but it's kind of haunting. A Swedish noir mystery, it kind of transcended genre with its broad look at Swedish history, including Nazi sympathizers, women's rights, and most recently, economic speculation.

Hi, this is Stephanie. I work for the publisher of Stieg Larsson's books in the U.S. Thanks for your great review of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (and for all your other wonderful posts about books!). For the launch of the second book in the series we're trying something different. Run your own Stieg Larsson contest on your blog--for which we will provide the prizes (a free copy of The Girl Who Played with Fire, cool temporary dragon tattoos). And the first thirty blogger entrants will get first dibs on the translated manuscript of book three. I'm including a link to the contest if you are interested.
Thanks again!
