The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, by Steig Larsson

My sister told me about this book which she had read as part of a book club.  While I was in FLA she let me borrow it and I started reading it almost immediately.  Struck with a cold shortly thereafter I thought I'd finish it in a couple of days, but my persistent sore throat made it hard for me to concentrate on a book I was so enjoying.
Feeling better this week I really started reading it with a passion Tues-Wed-Thursday nights.  I didn't want to go to sleep I was so captivated.  I thought the mystery portion was top-notch, really enjoyed it.  I found the last section a bit boring, little of a let down, after the main mystery is summed up with dozens of pages remaining on the personal vendetta portion.
None-the-less, this is a great book.  I think I might check out the movie this weekend at E-Street Cinema.
On a side note, I feel bad b/c I dropped the book in the bath one night while reading in the tub... it's now a gigantic water-logged mess with no resale value on  Sorry about that sis!
