As there was so much hype about this novel (even Mr H read it or at least listened to it), I thought I should read it too.
I don’t think I’ll be reading two or three. It was too violent for me. I prefer to remain ignorant of all of the evil people do to one another.
Here’s the blurb …
Henrik Vanger, head of the dynastic Vanger corporation, is tormented by the loss of a child decades earlier and convinced that a member of the family has committed murder.
Mikael Blomkvist delves deep into the Vanger’s past to uncover the truth behind the unsolved mystery. But someone else wants the past to remain a secret and will go to any lengths to keep it that way.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Lisbeth Salander, the enigmatic, delinquent and dangerous security specialist, assists in the investigation. A genius computer hacker, she tolerates no restrictions placed upon her by individuals, society or the law.
I am glad I read this – I feel slightly more informed when people discuss it. However, I don’t feel I can encourage or discourage anyone from reading it.
