If you like a good murder mystery, than 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' by Steig Larsson is worth a read.
It started off a bit slow, explaining in detail all the characters and how they connected, but once the action started I was more than happy to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon gripped in suspense!
Be warned though, this Swedish thriller is full of both explicit and gruesome scenes. But is certainly worth pursuing if your stomach can handle it!
This book has also been made into a movie (that I rushed out to see when I finished the book) The movie put the story into pictures brilliantly and was just how I imagined it while reading. It also included some surprising variations from the book to keep it fresh.
I am now looking forward to reading Steig Larsson's other two books "The Girl who Played with Fire" and "The Girl who Kicked the Hornets Nest"
