Author: Stieg Larsson
This book takes place in Sweden (originally written in Swedish). It is a very complex book with a lot of characters, twists and turns. The story, or at least part of it, is a mystery centered around the disappearance of a young girl in one of Sweden’s wealthiest families (a cold case which happened 40 years ago). The book is really rich in detail with a quick pace. As you may have guessed, one of the main characters has a dragon tattoo. Lisbeth Salander is a young woman who has led a rather mysterious and interesting life. You find out more about her as the story goes on. I don’t want to say too much and give it away. It is such a pleasure to read and be surprised by the next bit of information. I really enjoyed this book. It is really well written with few paragraphs of filler. I could barely put it down. It left me eager to read the next book in the trilogy. All of the names of people, cities and streets are Swedish. That is the only thing I had a hard time with as unfamiliar names are hard for me to remember. But well worth the time to read!
Starts (1 to 5) 5-Stars!!

Last month there was a big fire in the Bosque which is the preserved land adjacent the Rio Grande river. Fire officials think it may have been started by an electric (fake) cigarette. They just opened the Bosque up so I took my mountain bike back there and shot some pictures. The bike path is still there although now you have to go around a few downed trees.
