Just a brief foray back into the self-restricted world of fiction.
Stieg Larsson showed up on my radar a month or two ago on a list of authors to read instead of Dan Brown. Then The Economist ran a positive review of his Millennium Trilogy last month. I started The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on Wednesday and could not put it down. What a page-turner. I found an export paperback copy of The Girl Who Played with Fire in the Mexico City airport yesterday and finished it today. I agree with the critics. These are fascinating thrillers with complex characters, intriguing plot lines, and some very disturbing images. Incredible. Not sure how long I can hold out before I have to read some edition of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.
We now return to our regularly scheduled, non-fiction programming.
