Teaser Tuesday - The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo

With that, the subject was exhausted, and not another word was exchanged
for almost a minute. The retired policeman leaned back in his kitchen
chair and drew on his pipe. He knew he was no longer expected to come up
with a pithy comment or any sharp question which would shed a new light on the
case. pg - 4

Just picked it up from BN yesterday. I used the rest of my gift card. I feel so torn because I really want to finish Alias Grace, which is slow moving but good and I read the first chapter of this because I felt as though it deserved a post soon since it was our book of the month. Got lots of reading to catch up on. :)

Here is a good review for the book from a blog I read..

So, what are your thoughts so far? How far along are you? Favorite part? Thing you want to share?

I'd love to hear your thoughts (and anyone else's) on the translation of the book. I read it in french and I found that the prose sounded sort of forced and strange. In the end I liked the writing anyways - it sort of felt like a style. But I wonder if it was the same in english, and if it was maybe it's because it sort of sounds like that in Swedish?

ps: The gossip in Europe is that there may be a 4th book, which his widow still holds because she didn't get any money from the books (he died after handing in the manuscripts for the 3 books)

The Many Thoughts of a Reader said...

Anais - I am only about 10 pages in but I can see what you mean. If I didn't know it was translated, I would think it was kind of choppy. Though it does add to the style. Then again I am 10 pages in and it hasn't annoyed me yet.. But I can see the haltiness (is that a word?) of it...

I keep eyeing this, but just have too many other books to get through on my TBR list!!! Someday... Thanks for the teaser!

I read it this fall & loved it. I usually am not a big fan of the murder/mystery genre but this book grabbed me! I just lent it to a friend so can't reference any great teasers. I hope you like it!!
