The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Mikael Blomkvist, a journalist with an iconic sense of morality, is pulled into a forty year old mystery when he is hired by a former business mogul, Henrik Vanger.  Also drawn into the mix is Lisbeth Salander; a haunting young women with an unusual talent for finding trouble.  When Lisbeth and Mikael start digging into the past, they realize that despite decades passing, someone wants their secrets to remain buried.

Larsson’s ability to create warm, yet seriously flawed characters means that you will want to read this book right to the end.  With enough suspense to keep you intrigued,  just the right amount of foreshadowing, and an ending with major shock factor, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will hook readers into its pages in mere minutes.
