The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson (translated by Reg Keeland)
I see this book on several desks here at work, and on chairs at the pool. Usually, this means I don’t have much of an interest, when you’re talking of Clive Cusslers and that ilk.
But I liked this book quite a bit, and I look forward to trying the other “The Girl with…” books. It had a decent mystery, smooth writing, and interesting characters. There’s no hint of oddness at being translated, which is a tribute to Keeland.
I note that I’ve read two books in a row about late-30’s men having relationships with an 18-25 year old. This is purely unintentional, and I wonder if I’m being demographically targeted in some way.
