A powerful mystery
26 December, 2013
Follow a year in the life of financial reporter Mikael Blomkvist as he embarks on mysterious research project with the assistance of the subversive young Lisbeth Salander.
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
