* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Nearly everyone has read the series and I'd always planned to.  So many panelists at ThrillerFest referred to the books and talked about Lisbeth Salander that I've finally started on the series!

The Girl Who Played with Fire (Vintage)
Here's mine from The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson.   I just received the book this week and am very excited to start reading!
Here's the blurb:

Crusading publisher Mikael Blomkvist has decided to run an explosive expose of a wide-ranging sex trafficking operation.  Just before the piece is published, the two reporters responsible are murdered. The fingerprints on the murder weapon belong to his friend, the troubled hacker genius Lisbeth Salander.  Blomkvist, convinced of Salander's innocence, plunges into an investigation.  Meanwhile, Lisbeth herself is drawn into a murderous game of cat and mouse, and is forced to face her dark past.

Here's my Friday 56:
Something had set off the madness when she was twelve.  

There were other gaps in her biography.  

He discovered to his great surprise that Salander had a twin sister who had not been referred to in any of the material to which he had previously had access. My God, there are two of them.  But he could not find any reference to what had happened to the sister.
