I received the book The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson a few weeks ago (thanks sis!) and am about halfway through it. If you wonder, “why would I enjoy a book by a Swedish author that has a silly title?”, you’re not alone. I wondered the same thing.
There is one incontrovertible fact about Swedish people–they are all good looking (and some are now single and rich!). But do I really want to widdle away hours with a Swedish novel that contains no pictures of actual Swedish people?
At the halfway point, I would say most definitely “yes”.
I remember seeing these Stieg Larsson books on the bestseller lists early in the summer. At the time, his books occupied three of the top ten bestseller spots (it looks like they are still there) and they all had peculiar names that really didn’t make me want to read them.
