The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl with Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson isn’t  bad murder mystery. But it is a little pedestrian and makes predictable remarks about how business people are evil and whatnot.

The book features a journalist who is unfairly sued for defamation, which is pretty predictable in a book written by a journalist. He gets invited to solve the disappearance of rich industrialist’s relative in the 1960s. He goes North to an island and works on the case. Interwoven is the story of a social outcast who is a genius private investigator and computer hacker.

It’s not bad, but it isn’t particularly thrilling. Murder mysteries rarely do it for me. Some hard boiled stuff does, but this didn’t.

2.5/5
