I read a thriller/mystery book after a long time and a ‘real’ one for the first time. ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ is a novel written by Swedish writer Stieg Larsson as first part of Millennium series. The author was dead by the time these books got published and couldn’t see the acclaimed it got.
