Scouring Books: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
by Stieg Larsson

originally published in 2005

Part of the late Larsson's Millennium Trilogy, this was the start of a massive literary rage that has finally produced a Hollywood version (later this month), which for some members of the audience who'll care is significant (who doesn't like to see Christopher Plummer and Daniel Craig in a good film?). I worked at a bookstore during the massive crush of publication for these books, but never got around to reading them, even though there were certainly elements that intrigued me, especially the more I read about them and the supposedly disappointing final installment (and just when is Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest going to be released in paperback, anyway?), which seems to double-back on the central element of the story, that being Lisbeth Salander (the "girl" in each of the titles).
