The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson Review

The Girl With the Dragon TattooThe Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)

Millennium Trilogy Book One

By Stieg Larsson

 Mikael Blomkvist was a respected financial journalist but after being found liable by the courts is now a pariah in his field with no idea what he will do with his future he is suprised by an offer to ghost write a memoir of the Vanger family and find out what happened to Harriet Vanger in 1966. When he hits a wall with his research he enlists the help of Lisbeth Salander to research possible connections to Harriet’s disappearance what they come across is far more sinister and intriguing than just the disappearance of one girl.

Let me start with the fact that I have never read this book nor seen the movie, that being said though this is an interesting read it is very predictable. From the very beginning I knew what had happened but this also gave me the chance to say “Ha! I knew it!” The story is quite enthralling though and there are several aspects that leave you guessing which make up for the fact that the main plot is so easily figured out. The romance in this novel is subtle and beautiful, I didn’t care much for Mikael’s character he seemed like a womanizer but Salandar is a remarkable character with several depths and such a strong character you cannot help but like her. The only other problem I found with this book is that it is rather slow, the first half of the book is all build up with very little action or even events taking place but if you can make it through this it turns out to be interesting and is well worth the read.
