    It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden...and about her octogenarian uncle, determined to know the truth about what he believes was her murder.

    Overall

    Martin Wenner did a marvelous job narrating. I believe equal or better than Simon Vance, (whom I heard on "Played with Fire". I also watched the movie and was sorry to see it rushed the ending. After listening to the "unabridged version" of "Played with Fire" I wished I purchased the "unabridged" version of "Dragon Tatto". I would agree with some of the comments that it starts off slow. As far as characters are concerned....there are far fewer in this book than the second book. I read them both in order and watched the movie in between the two.

    Well written and a solid fast paced plot. I thought the ending was weaker than the rest of the book but overall excellent. Definately deserved of all the accolades and awards

    When Clementine Kaye, archivist Beecher White's first childhood crush, shows up at the National Archives asking for his help, Beecher tries to impress her by showing her the secret vault where the president of the United States privately reviews classified documents. They accidentally happen upon a priceless artifact - and find themselves suddenly entangled in a web of deception, conspiracy, and murder.

    "The Inner Circle"
    Overall

    A very interesting book with a great character portrayal by Scott Brick. It only got more interesting the deeper I went. Who thought an intrigue book about the National Archives could be so much fun!!!

  • The Envoy: The Epic Rescue of the Last Jews of Europe in the Desperate Closing Months of World War II

    Hailed as “a master storyteller” (Booklist), Alex Kershaw routinely climbs best-seller lists with his narrative histories. In the waning months of World War II, SS Colonel Adolf Eichmann sent over half a million Hungarians to their deaths at Auschwitz. But one Jewish ghetto remained, and only one man - a Swedish diplomat named Raoul Wallenberg - could stop Eichmann.

    Henry Rosenberg MD says: "an amazing story"
    "The Envoy"
    Overall

    I don't typically read or listen to books of this nature. I was pleasantly surprised that it flowed very well. The book has alot of focus on Budapest and provides the reader with more information on this lightly covered area of the Holocost. It is a an excellent narration by George Guidall

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "Abridged versus Unabridged"
    Overall

    I downloaded the "abridged" version of "Dragon Tattoo". I am happy I spent the time on the "unabridged" version of "Played with Fire". You can really appreciate the details that are missing in the abridged version and the movie is short on the book in general.
