I finished reading "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," by Stieg Larsson, tonight. The book turned out to be very good, despite my initial misgivings. I feel like it took forever to get through the first chapter, but only because I couldn't tell why it was so important to focus that much on a seemingly unrelated subject. After that, it all got much easier and enjoyable to read. And do the Swedes really drink that much coffee?
