So I’ve been reading the girl with the dragon tattoo (1st in the series). And I will say, the beginning of the book is a tad slow. But once you get into it, you are immediately sucked in and have an attachment to the characters. I have yet to see the movie that was released in the US. But I will say the one released overseas a while ago was pretty good. Can’t wait to go see this in theatres. Just watch this opening title sequence. It will blow your mind.
