The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Stieg Larsson Grabbed this while at a conference, expecting the latest hyped-up let-down.

Instead, it's thoroughly engrossing, and neatly weaving between corporate thriller and corpse-riddled mystery, noodling character study and knee-clenching suspense.

I'd gladly have spent another 500 pages with Blomkvist and Salander.
