The book of the moment definitely has to be, well, any one of the three books in Stieg Larsson's Millenium trilogy. Having read them all (reviews still to come), I think my favourite was the second installment - Girl Who Played With Fire.
Smart, strong, independent, Lisbeth Salander's story will undoubtedly remain atthe top of booklists for several year's to come; and while I know the Swiss film version of the book has been made, it is only a matter of time before Hollywood jumps on the bandwagon and makes this the explosive blockbuster it deserves to be.
A must read!!
