Two views ...

... of the same book: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Here's Maxine's.

Here's the Guardian's:
Let's play corpse and robbers.

I have to say I prefer Maxine's because it's more show than tell, though I understand - who better? - that Guttridge had a greater space constraint.

  1. Thanks, Frank, I very much appreciate your judgement because you really do know about these things. It is hard to review this type of novel without giving too much away and yet convey why it is worth reading. This one is particularly good -- it is officially published in the UK next week and I think will do very well (it is both good and has a large promotion budget from the publisher!)
