MY THOUGHTS :
This book caught my eyes when I was randomly browsing for mystery thriller books but I was little intimidated to read a chunky book with 600 pages or so. That was the initial thought and after reading the synopsis I was intrigued. This is the first book in the Millennium Trilogy. For some reason it took me a super long time to start the book. Intense mystery read with complex plot. First 100 pages describes the economy and business, it was like watching a paint dry but after that it picks up and I was totally engrossed. Certain moments in the book are graphic not overly but the intensity is high up there (Watch out). There were lots of characters that I thought I would get confused but I didn't. Pretty addictive, you might want to go on with the series. I should say it was the most stunning and brilliant thriller I have ever read.
