My book club ladies crack me up. In honor of this month's selection we feasted on all that Ikea's grocery section had to offer–Swedish meatballs, Swedish cheeses, Swedish fish, and a fantastic assortment of pastries that I can only assume are, you guessed it, Swedish.
But the real kicker was turning the hostess' living room into a "tattoo parlor" as we all donned matching dragon tattoos to discuss:
This 608 page door stop took at least 200 pages to really get into. (I think it was 200 pages, not quite sure since I was reading it on Handyman Tim's Kindle.) Once Lisbeth's character was introduced I was completely hooked. I was a little taken aback by how violent the story line actually turns out to be. This book is not for the squeamish or overly sensitive. However, for a mystery lover not afraid of a little murder, this is highly recommended.
I'm counting the minutes until Handyman Tim and I can settle in with the Swedish version of the movie based on this book. Can't wait to see how it compares!
