And, after you read his 1st book, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo", Run to the theatre and watch the Swedish movie based on this book. You will be Blown Away. I promise. It's too good to be true. Much more "real" than what our Hollywood directors would do. Follows the most important plot in the book....great editing. There are scenes in there that are from the book that are Very Raw but necessary. I can't wait to see the next movie based on his 2nd book "The Girl Who Played with Fire" coming next month to American theatres.
You do NOT want to miss out on this movie or his books. I mean it.
