I have only just got around to reading The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo – I know, it's been out for simply ages! I ended up enjoying the book – but it does get off to quite a slow start – and it was only my normal stubbornness that made me keep on reading.
What really makes the book is the amazing female protagonist – Lisbeth. I won't say much about her just in case you haven't read the book yet.
One warning – there are a couple of gruesome sex scenes in the book – which are not gratuitous – but still shocking.
But, I'm still really glad I read it and I will be reading the next book in the trilogy soon.
