Steig Larsson - Millenium Trilogy

Millenium Trilogy is a series of 3 crime thriller novel's written by Swedish author Steig Larsson. The novels were published posthumously and have become immediate success worldwide.

I have not had a chance to read the books , but have seen the movie version of the same. I must admit I have got hooked on instantly to "The Girl" Lisbeth Salander. She is unlike any normal protagonist. She suffers from aspergers syndrome, dresseses up as a Goth and computer hacker , expert in martial arts , has photographic memory. She teams up with a journalis Mikael Blomkvist and goes about solving mysteries and unearthing dark history.

I do not want to reveal more of the plot here , but what got me hooked on is the intensity of the protagonist. I ended up watching all the 3 parts back to back . It just gets you hooked on to the level of being addictive. I would like to add here that this is not for the faint hearted , as some of the scenes are graphic.

Highly recommended.
