The Millenium Trilogy series

I recently read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and found it fascinating. There was murder, Nazis, romance and more. The first part of the book was a bit slow as Larsson was setting up the characters and the telling the Vanger family history. There may have been more violence than necessary to tell the story but overall I would rate the book as a very good read.

I am just over 200 pages into the second book of the trilogy, The Girl Who Played with Fire. I really like the story so far. There are drug dealers, murders, bad guys transporting young girls for sex trade and again romance.

Stieg Larsson (1954-2004) was a Swedish writer and journalist. Prior to his sudden death of a heart attack in November 2004 he finished three detective novels in his trilogy “The Millenium-series” which were published posthumously; “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”, “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest”. Altogether, his trilogy has sold more than 20 million copies in 41 countries (spring of 2010), and he was the second bestselling author in the world 2008.

I recommend reading this author. I am hooked and can’t wait to continue to read the series.
