Ok, wow. I just finished this book today, and I couldn’t put it down. Now a bit of disclosure. I have already seen the Swedish film about 6 months ago. So while I didn’t remember every little thing, I did remember a lot. At the same time, I could not put this book down! I read it in about 10 days, reading more and more the last few days.

This is a wonderful mystery novel. Henry Vanger hires Mikael Blomkvist to search into Harriet Vanger’s murder in 1966. Mikael Blomkvist has his own problems, but as the case becomes more complicated, with the help of Lisabeth Salander, the weird but very intelligent hacker, Mikael sets out to solve the mystery.

The movie was great, so I shouldn’t have been so surprised that I couldn’t put down the novel. This is the 1st in the 3 part Millennium series. The other two are already ordered and I can’t wait to dig into them! I have to say the ending on this book did leave you wanting more – not the most ideal ending, but it did force me to go buy the other two books asap 🙂

This book is for sale on Amazon and other book stores for less than $8, and well worth every penny!
