The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium #1) by Stieg Larsson

Mikael Blomkvist, a once-respected financial journalist, watches his professional life rapidly crumble around him. Prospects appear bleak until an unexpected (and unsettling) offer to resurrect his name is extended by an old-school titan of Swedish industry. The catch—and there’s always a catch—is that Blomkvist must first spend a year researching a mysterious disappearance that has remained unsolved for nearly four decades. With few other options, he accepts and enlists the help of investigator Lisbeth Salander, a misunderstood genius with a cache of authority issues. Little is as it seems in Larsson’s novel, but there is at least one constant: you really don’t want to mess with the girl with the dragon tattoo.

I was reading this book for a challenge and part of a Twin thing.
I found the characters quite boring, some of the language was bizarre. Not sure what the Dragon Tattoo had to do with the story and finding people. The main character who was the journalist was a bit like chasing his own tail with different women. Meant to go to prison for something and finding the person.
Very Weird Book in my opinion x

  1. I really enjoyed this series. The book is translated and perhaps that is why the language may seem different.
