The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larrson was a pretty good book, though I had pretty high expectations after all the hype it recieved which it didn't exactly live up to. To quote Sheldon Cooper "once a mind is pre-blown, it cannot be re-blown!" Which I suppose was the case here. Larrson seemed to be a very good writer who wrote what I believe everyone will agree was a very provacative story. It is definately one worth reading and explores aspects of human nature and society that isn't usually touched upon. I suppose I'm more into the classics and science (fiction and non fiction) then possible murder mystery/thriller.
All in all, its was a pretty good book with alot of plot development and good writing. Just don't go into it with your mind preblown and you'll most likely enjoy the hell out it.
