A Book Report: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Throw it in the trash.
Or skim it and move onto the second book The Girl Who Played with Fire. Seriously who puts the climax half way through the book? And a look-alike sister. I figured that one out in the first three pages. Whoops. Spoiler alert. 
I kept waiting for some sort of thrilling ending but when they started talking about embezzling, hedge funds, "white collar crimes," or whatever the issue was. No. No one cares. Chopped up people in a basement makes for a riveting tale. Lawsuits over libel do not.
