First of the trilogy, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo blazed the way for one of the most unique and complicated characters I read for awhile, Lisbeth Slander. Simply put, you have to read this book. You have a recently fired journalist hired by a person of wealth to investigate what happened to a young girl that disappeared 40 years ago. Journalist is soon aided by this prodigy that goes beyond what we understand as a society of a hacker to be, with her background and personality definitive of someone not to be screwed around with. But wait: there's so much more to tell.
We unearth dark secrets. Corruption. More. So much more. If you watched the movie, still read the book. If you have yet to watch the blockbuster film yet---always read the book first. This book is a thriller to its very core, and you will keep flipping page after page to discover and rediscover what happens next.
