notable novel

Just finished reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. Although the first couple of chapters were a little slow, this book turned out to be a real page-turner. Described as "a spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue," this novel centers around two main characters:
Mickael Blomkvist- A crusading journalist recently convicted for libel, who is hired to solve a disappearance that occurred decades ago.

Lisbeth Salander- A young, pierced, punk-rock girl known for her computer hacking skills, but lack of social skills, who aids Mikael in his investigation.




Luckily this book is part of a trilogy, and I cannot wait to start book two!

It is the next book on my list (between True Blood stuff). The new background looks awesome! I'm so jealous!
