I realize that I’m behind the times when it comes to Girl With The Dragon Tattoo but DEAR LORD. I’ve seen the US version of the movie and, naturally, was fascinated by Lisbeth Salander.
Our incredibly twisty turny novel follows both Mikael Blomkvist (a financial reporter on hiatus after being convicted of libel) who takes a job of solving a 35 year old mystery to gain dirt on the man whom he made libelous claims against and Lisbeth Salander (a complicated soul who hacks other people’s information as her career).
It would take me three whole days just to explain the plot but know this is a mystery worth getting lost in a book for.
464 pages and at times a tough read (lots of financial jargon in the beginning) and took me 5 days to read but is completely mind blowing.
I genuinely loved this book. With confidence I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 and I only go that low because the first 100 pages can be difficult to get through. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has some time to kill and a fairly good memory.
Please comment with your thoughts if you’ve already read or after you’ve finished reading this book.
