    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    This book had me at "prologue". It starts off right away teasing you with a mystery that has gone on for years. I was surprised to see how the story lines mingled with each other and at many times was wrong in my assumptions in this strange who-done-it book. I was happy to learn that the second book in the series, The Girl who played with Fire, is being recorded and look forward to listening to that one.

    When he falls ill on his way home from school, 15-year-old Michael Berg is rescued by Hanna, a woman twice his age. In time she becomes his lover--then she inexplicably disappears. When Michael next sees her, he is a young law student, and she is on trial for a hideous crime. As he watches her refuse to defend her innocence, Michael gradually realizes that Hanna may be guarding a secret she considers more shameful than murder.

    Though I purchased the book at the same time the movie was in theaters, I profoundly enjoyed listening to it. I was surprised by the ending and felt a sense of loss for one of the main characters. I would recommnend this book to anyone.

    Multiple award-winning author Per Petterson delivers an eloquent, meditative novel. 67-year-old Trond Sander lives secluded in a far corner of Norway. Casting his mind back to 1948, he recalls a horse-stealing prank with his best friend that turned tragic and changed his life forever.

    KP says: "Quiet and powerful"

    Overall

    The book was very good but where's the ending? The author leaves you wanting more and feeling disappointed. The book has a good flow and a nice mix of past and present. You are drawn into liking the main character so much that the books leaves you wanting to find out more.
