“A spellbinding blend of murder mystery, family saga, and financial intrigue”, or so it says on the jacket.  And it’s not for the fainthearted.  Given the phenomenon it’s been, I realize that there’s probably no-one else reading this who hasn’t already read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (and its two successors) … but just in case you haven’t, I really do recommend it.  I have Secret Santa to thank for this one;  and I’ve just ordered parts 2 and 3 of the trilogy.

It would have been more than a trilogy, apparently, had Larsson not died suddenly of a heart attack at the end of 2004.  He did rough manuscripts of books 4 and 5;  and summaries of later books up to 10.  But he was only able to complete numbers 1 – 3 before he died.

Anyway:  I devoured it during our few days at Graeme & Helen’s … although it was somewhat frustrating at first because – given my bad neck – I couldn’t actually hold a book for more than a few minutes;  and this being a fantastic page-turner … well:  you can imagine …
