The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Stieg Larsson Recommended to me by a work colleague and also recommended to Louise by a friend of hers we ended up taking the entire trilogy on holiday. Unfortunately, this led to a battle of wills as three people tried to read the same trilogy at the same time, in the same order. Needless to say I won and finished first...

This first book is definitely my favourite of the trilogy. The story and characters were well put together and the pacing certainly kept me hooked. I suspect the book suffers slightly in translation though, as I suspect most non-english books do when they are brought to the English speaking market. That said, it doesn't distract much at all.
