The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

From Elinor Sbrocchi
author: Larsson, Stieg
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
What a story! Rich with characters. A complicated plot that never lets up and pulls you along to read more. Written by a Swede who died shortly after submitting his trilogy to his publisher.
I’m looking forward to the next volume, but first, something lighter.
Warning: some readers may give up after the first chapters, but stay with it. You’ll soon be roped into the story.
