Like most of you, I love to read. A holiday break is always the perfect time to indulge in this favourite past time. So far I’ve managed to devour 5 novels. Novels of varying value and literary skill. Two gems surfaced.
Stieg Larsson wrote The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire. They are part of the trilogy which included The Girl Who Kicked the Hornest Nest. The books are fast paced, contain well developed characters and suprise you with new levels of intrigue every step of the way. They are the kind of books that you hate to finish.
Stieg Larson lived in Sweden and was the editor in chief of the magazine Expo and a leading expert on antidemocratic, right-wing extremist and Nazi organizations. He died in 2004, shortly after delivering the manuscripts for the three books. 21 million of his books have been sold world-wide.
Somewhere, out there, some one has that third book…and I want it. It will be a hornet under my saddle until I can find it and complete the read.
If you haven’t read them … do so. They are graphic, disturbing at times, but they will galvanize you page by page.
