The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

ehoward, January 3, 2013

I had several other candidates for the best book I read in 2012: The Paris Wife, Cutting for Stone, and The Help. I chose The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo because I kept extending my time on the treadmill while I listened to the book. I delayed reading this because I don't like books about violence or torture. Stieg Larsson wrote it so perfectly that I didn't feel overwhelmed by either.
