The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was a good read. It made my heart skip a few beats as I flipped the pages. Stieg Larsson has a vivid imagination on story telling and his characters just casually leaps of the page. The girl with the dragon tattoo is such a compelling character suffering from social ills and how she uses her sources to solve a mystery is just jaw dropping.

It is about a murder on an island, some years ago, where a journalist is called to help solve a case which appeared to be unbreakable. The girl is the grand daughter of one of the most famous financial figures in Sweden, and he suspects that a member of his family was responsible for the death of her grand daughter. The journalist with the help of the girl with the dragon tattoo takes on the case from different points of view and what they find was simply staggering.

I was so hooked on the book that I just had to get the second part of the three part trilogy. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl who Played with Fire and The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest are the titles.

They even turned the books into movies. But unfortunately, it is in Swedish. I'm currently looking for the DVD or the torrent online, but I can't seem to find a functioning one. It got good reviews from the international media so this makes it the movie that I have to watch, one way or another. Why is it so difficult to get foreign language films to play in Malaysia? Essh. Moronic.

They are also making a remake of the movie in English. And who stars in it? Daniel Craig! Woo hoo. I think that was perfect casting for the part of the journalist. Can't wait, can't wait!
