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.
