Stieg Larsson's #1 bestselling mystery featuring Lisbeth Salander is now a major motion picture directed by David Fincher, starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara, from Columbia Pictures/Sony. In theaters December 2011. The first volume in the Millennium Trilogy, and an international publishing sensation, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo combines murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue into one satisfyingly complex and entertainingly atmospheric novel.
The prose is dispassionate, the events depicted as coldly as the wintery setting... The story never really gains a pace quick enough to justify the immensely slow set-up, and the payoff isn't exactly shocking so much as a matter-of-fact revelation.Full Review
