This is the best book I have read this year. Plus, not only did it get a good movie, it even got a decent remake. I would recommend this book if you like strong female protagonists, mystery, and crime. Maybe you like none if these thing. That's ok, but read it anyway. It was extremely well writen by Stieg Larsson, who sadly past away in 2004. I could not put it down once I started reading it. It is the first book in the Millennium series and one out of three. I don't think I will really include anything like what the book is about or its contents other than the fact its great, cause I feel books are at their best when you know nothing about them when reading it for the first time.
