The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larson (#15)
A complexly plotted murder mystery set in Sweden pairs a strange antisocial young woman with a journalist, united to solve the mystery. I was curious about this book, knowing how popular it has been, and was surprised to find it not so easy to get into. The first 200 pages were filled with unfamiliar Swedish names, a very complicated family situation, and not as interesting commentary in the plot. Then it began to flow and I finished it quickly. I would recommend this book, noting that it takes a bit of patience and persistence to read. I will read the next two books of the series and I will be curious if they will continue in the same way.
