Dragon Tattoo and Zombies

Nope, not the same book, but two books I finished recently.

There's a reason why Stieg Larsson has a book at the top of the hard cover and paper back mystery lists right now. Having read an excellent review of The Girl Who Played with Fire, I decided I wanted to go back and read the first book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (besides liking the title). Fresh Air (NPR) describes it far better than I: "A super-smart amalgam of the corporate corruption tale, legal thriller and dysfunctional-family psychological suspense story." And so much more...

The third book in the trilogy The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is getting great reviews and will be released in the US until October 31, 2009.

For a little background on this series and how pippi longstocking fits in...

Also finished Pride and Prejudice and the original Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy end up together and unlike the original, survive the disapproval of Lady Catherine as evidenced by the attack of her ninjas on Pemberley.
