With all of the snow on the ground, it is hard to believe it….  but spring is right around the corner. It is time to start talking about our April book selection, the one time of the year we invite our significant others to read along side of us and join in our discussion.

This April’s book is The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson.  Larsson, a swedish writer died of a sudden heartattack in 2004, prior to the pubication of his Millenium Series, which include: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest.

 The original title of The Girl With The Dragon Tatto in Swedish was Män som hatar kvinnor  which translates to:  Men Who Hate Women. In this page turner detective story,  Henrik Vanger, CEO of the Vanger Corporation hires Mikael Blomkvist to investigate the disappearance of his favorite niece Harriet, who disappeared  4o years ago without a trace. Together Mikael and his pierced and tattooed sidekick Lisabeth work together to solve this murder/mystery.

You may want to get those spouses/guests on board and get them a copy of The  Girl With The Dragon Tattoo today! I just did! We invite all of our blogger friends to read along with us and join in the discussion!

  1. This is a great book. I read it about six months ago and immediately purchased and read his second book “The Girl Who Played With Fire” which was also superb. So much so, that I found his third book on an English site…recently translated, and published only in England and am in the middle of reading it. Lisbeth Salander, the main female character is one of the most sexy, bizarre and anachronistic characters you will ever come across. The book is a now Swedish movie, recently purchased for a new script and release by a major US production company.

    The series was written together and is called the “Millennium Trilogy”, named after the fictitious magazine the lead character writes for. They are a continuation of each other and I would encourage reading them in sequence if you like. For all of you conspiracy theorists, the books go deeply into Scandinavian politics, Nazi movements, communist links, and government graft and cover-ups. Many people think that Larson’s untimely death was an assassination by some of the people he writes about, he was in his early 50’s. This just makes his books more realistic. Lots to talk about. Thank you Susan, looking forward to the evening discussions.
