Book 18

Book 18 : The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Stieg Larsson
Genre: Thriller

Plot: Mikael Blomkvist is a highly respected Financial Reporter who has just been convicted for publishing a story that isn't true about a powerful financier. He decides it's in his best interests - and those of Millennium, the magazine he co-owns - for him to take some quiet time, away from the media spotlight. Then, an elderly former CEO - Henrik Vanger - offers to give him information that will allow him to prove to the world that he wasn't barking up the proverbial wrong tree in exchange for writing his family history. Of course,this isn't the only thing Henrik Vanger wants. His niece, Harriet Vanger, disappeared 40 years ago. As part of his investigations into the family history, Blomkvist is to ask questions about that day 40 years ago when the 16 year old disappeared...

My thoughts: I finally gave into the hype surrounding this series and bought the first one. I enjoyed it very much although it wasn't at all what I expected. I can understand the whole debate about Lisbeth Salander's character...not really sure what I think of her. The other characters were believable and likeable. The plot had some interesting twists and turns. I will definitely hunt up book 2.
