Great Twisting Plot

This would be a good movie along the lines of "Girl with the Dragon Tatoo" - I can see the writer has a lot of imagination and that flawed detective character that the Scandanavian writers are so good at. It was pretty thrilling and different. I plan to read some of his other novels.
