    Review
    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is intricate and unpredictable. The book was originally published in Sweden, which occasionally caused me some confusion. How much is a Swedish Krona really worth? But, overall this didn't hinder my listening experience. Simon Vance is a master narrator which heightened my enjoyment the story. All that being said, I wasn't wholly impressed with this book. Don't get me wrong, it is a good book, but is it international acclaim and two-time movie adaptation good? I'm not so sure. Perhaps it is because I don't usually read mysteries, or perhaps it is that other mystery novels aren't as well written, but I was surprised that it wasn't better after all the glowing reviews I read in the past. I will definitely finish the series and I am looking forward to seeing both the Swedish and Hollywood movies
