If your club liked this, especially the Lizbeth Salander character, try Carol O'Connell's Mallory Series, starting with Mallory's Oracle. A (more) fascinating character and a series of about 10 books to watch the development and learn the past.

Overall rating:
  "Interesting but too graphic in an unnecessary way"by nextchapter (see profile) 01/30/13

The story and the development of the characters were written well. The story was interesting and created an eagerness to continue reading but the graphic description of sexual violence was unnecessary... (read more)

  "The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo"by CMay2CK (see profile) 10/19/11

Extended scene setting can be a bit tiresome at times, but worth the effort. The first book takes well into the 200s to get interesting. Stick it out!

  "A good read but surprisingly graphic"by supnatmom (see profile) 05/08/11

I enjoyed his writing. He is very detailed so if you don't have time to read, this is not the book for you. I did not like the graphic violence depicted in the book. I also thought the end of the book... (read more)

  "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"by MelissaR (see profile) 03/17/11

The first chapter was a little slow, but once you get going it great. You'll definitely want to read the next two books of the series.

  "Not sure why people love this triology so much"by erpennin (see profile) 02/21/11

My book club was torn, some members really enjoyed it. For me, it was so slow in the beginning I had to force myself to keep reading. It does pick up in the end but for a large group, we lost many members... (read more)

  "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo"by bklvr22 (see profile) 02/04/11

Great story, fascinating characters...starts off a little slow and complex but takes off quickly. Couldn't stop reading it!!

  "Slow starter but turns into a real page turner."by cherylynnmartens (see profile) 02/01/11

Our bookclub really enjoyed this book. All agreed that it started slow. The characters were very believable but somewhat bothersome. It was a great discussion.

  "With brief scenes of sexual violence, a little over-hyped, but not bad."by mystryrdr (see profile) 01/19/11

Some members were really turned off by the sexual assault scenes. But, most said they would probably read the next two anyway. It was easy to keep reading, but I felt personally, that I could have put... (read more)

  "A sick story"by hdcook (see profile) 11/24/10

If I was not reading this as a book club book I would have thrown it away half way through the book. I have no interest in reading books that involve twisted minds and violent rape.
