just getting warmed up!

Stieg Larsson's first book of his Millenium Trilogy, "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" was extremely hard to beat, and I wouldn't say that the second, "The Girl Who Played with Fire" was better per say, but it was just as good!

Publisher Mikael Blomkvist and the police are conducting parallel investigations into three horrifying murders. Their initial evidence points straight at young computer genius and social misfit Lisbeth Salander. Thats when things get complicated, and extremely complex. There are multiple investigations (Salander's of course, the police and Millenium's), multiple suspects, more murders...

The story is riveting, really, and of course leaves us with a cliffhanger. The third book is already out, and if you want to learn Swedish, you can read it now. For those of us stuck with this silly English langugage, we have to wait until 2010!
