Books are my passion, January 11, 2012 (view all comments by Books are my passion)
This book was a most unexpected surprise read! I did not read it when it first came out because I thought the subject matter was not really my cup of tea. After some time, I finally gave in to curiosity because everyone was talking about it and asking if I had read it. I picked it up thinking I would give it a few chapters and if it didn't grab me, then I was prepared to quickly drop it and move on -- at least then I could say I gave it a try and shed my guilt. I was hooked from the first pages and thoroughly enjoyed the entire journey. It was my summer read and quite a treat. I enjoyed meeting all the characters and visiting locations that were new to me. This book had all the elements I consider for a great book -- a real 'page turner'. I enjoyed it so much that I immediately followed it with both the second and third books in the trilogy. That says something because I never do that!

What a fantastic book - I've already jumped to the next book in the trilogy. I'm late to the "Girl with/Girl who ..." series, but what an excellent thriller and strong female protagonist. Love it!

Great book. I can't wait to see if the movie is loyal to it. Am very excited about reading the sequels.

"Staff Pick" by ,

In The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, corporate intrigue, subtle psychology, explosive content, and a sensational heroine make for a high-caliber novel.

"Review" by , "A blockbuster story . . . The plot is interesting and credible but above all the heroine is splendidly original . . . An extraordinary book."
"Review" by , "What a cracking novel! I haven't read such a stunning thriller debut for years. The way Larsson interweaves his two stories had me in thrall from beginning to end. Brilliantly written and totally gripping."
"Review" by , "This is a striking novel, full of passion, an evocative sense of place and subtle insights into venal, corrupt minds . . . The journalist and the hacker are ingenious creations."
"Review" by , "A whip-smart heroine and a hunky guy who needs her help? This sexy, addictive thriller is everything you never knew you could get from a crime novel."
"Review" by , "The ballyhoo is fully justified . . . The novel scores on every front — character, story, atmosphere, and the translation."
"Review" by , "As vivid as bloodstains on snow."
"Review" by , "One of the greatest crime-fiction novels I have ever read . . . As mesmerizing as it is insightful. . . The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a multi-layered, multi-character tale by a writer of some considerable power. Full of social conscience and compassion, with insight into the nature of moral corruption, it knocked me out . . . Mikael Blomkvist and his partner, the enigmatic and deeply troubled Lisbeth Salander, will soon join the pantheon of greatest crime-fiction characters that populate the genre at its apex."
"Review" by , "An absorbing and idiosyncratic crime novel."
"Review" by , "Mesmerizing. . . . Imagine the movies of Ingmar Bergman crossed with Thomas Harris's novel The Silence of the Lambs."
"Review" by , "Unique and fascinating. . . . It's like a blast of cold, fresh air to read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."
"Review" by , "As vivid as bloodstains on snow — and a perfect one-volume introduction to the unique strengths of Scandinavian crime fiction."
"Review" by , "Larsson's novel could serve as the definition of page-turner . . . The worst part: We have to wait until summer '09 for the second installment."
"Review" by , "The biggest Swedish phenom since ABBA."
"Review" by , "Crime fiction has seldom needed to salute and mourn such a stellar talent as Larsson's in the same breath."
"Synopsis" by , Inspector Sejer returns in this expertly crafted mystery about troubled teenagers—and two tragic deaths.
"Synopsis" by ,
"An intimate study of broken lives that showcases Fossums poet past." —Bloomberg

In this chilling addition to the internationally best-selling Inspector Konrad Sejer series, the detective must face down his memories and fears as he investigates the deaths of two troubled young men. The first victim, Jon Moreno, was getting better after a mysterious guilt had driven him to a nervous breakdown one year earlier. His psychiatrist said so, as did his new friend at the hospital, Molly Gram, with her little-girl-lost looks. So when he drowns in Dead Water Lake, Sejer hesitates to call it a suicide.

Then the corpse of another young man is found, a Vietnamese immigrant. And Sejer begins to feel his age weigh on him. Does he still have the strength to pursue the elusive explanations for human evil? A harrowing, masterfully wrought mystery from the celebrated Karin Fossum.

“Fascinatingly readable and very cleverly done.” —Colin Dexter, author of the Inspector Morse series

"Synopsis" by ,
In the wake of Stieg Larsson’s best-selling novels, readers are discovering the rich trove of modern Scandinavian crime fiction. If you’ve devoured the Millennium trilogy and are looking for your next read, Karin Fossum and her bone-chillingly bleak psychological thrillers have won the admiration of the likes of Ruth Rendell and Colin Dexter (of Inspector Morse fame). 

In Bad Intentions, the newest installment in the Inspector Sejer series since The Water’s Edge in 2009, Konrad Sejer must face down his memories and fears as he struggles to determine why the corpses of troubled young men keep surfacing in local lakes. 

The first victim, Jon Moreno, was getting better. His psychiatrist said so, and so did his new friend at the hospital, Molly Gram, with her little-girl-lost looks. He was racked by a mysterious guilt that had driven him to a nervous breakdown one year earlier. But when he drowns in Dead Water Lake, Sejer hesitates to call it a suicide. 

Then another corpse is found in a lake, a Vietnamese immigrant. And Sejer begins to feel his age weigh on him. Does he still have the strength to pursue the elusive explanations for human evil?
