The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
A journalist is hired by a wealthy man to solve the murder of his niece, 40 years after it happened. The journalist discovers that this is not a normal family. There are twists and turns throughout this book that will keep readers hooked. I loved the character of Lisbeth--a researcher/computer hacker with her own set of dysfunctions. She kicked ass. I had heard that this book started off slowly and it did a bit (a lot of background information and people all at once) but once it picked up, boy did it pick up! I really enjoyed this book and have the others in the series to read (this is the first book in the series). I recommend this book.
