I have finally managed to enter the world of the dragon tattoo and this fantastic trilogy of books that has had the world talking for quite some time.

I’ve been wanting to start this series since last year but the list was long and I just couldn’t push this to the top. Finally I picked it up and after a good portion of the book waiting for the inevitable reel in that had me reading until all hours of the night, I found myself hooked.

I will admit it took until almost halfway through before I found myself craving the next pages, but that doesn’t mean the beginning wasn’t interesting enough to read. Knowing that it was only going to get better kept me going.

A quick plot line of a complicated story, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is the story of the intertwining lives of a journalist facing the end of his career, a hacker/researcher looking for her next big break or secret, and an old man searching for the truth to the greatest mystery in his families history. They all come together in what is only the beginning of a great series of books.

I can’t wait to pick up book number 2.
