by Stieg Larsson (translated by Reg Keeland)

Really fun whodunit thriller, can definitely see how it got to be an international sensation. But beyond the fast-paced action and mystery, I appreciated the emphasis placed on discussing domestic violence issues and statistics. Delving into the corruption of financial institutions and gray areas of journalistic integrity were also nice cherries on top.
4.5 out of 5 stars: Really everything you’d want out of a thriller – interesting, multi-dimensional characters, intrigue and suspense, little dash of sociopolitical commentary. Guess I should watch the movie(s)!
