First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #129

It's Tuesday . . . time for . . .


First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, where bloggers post the first paragraph(s) of a book they are currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.

Today I'm featuring my current read, The Girl in the Spider's Web by David Lagercrantz, borrowed from the library.

 The Girl in the Spider's Web (Millennium, #4) 


This story begins with a dream, and not a particularly spectacular one at that.  Just a hand beating rhythmically and relentlessly on a mattress in a room on Lundagatan.

Yet it still gets Lisbeth Salander out of her bed in the early light of dawn.  Then she sits at her computer and starts the hunt.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
 I waited quite a while for my turn at this book.  I loved the first three books in this series, which were written by Stieg Larsson.   Thus, I opened this book by a new author with a bit of trepidation.  Could he continue the characters and story line in the same superior way?  I am a little over 100 pages in, and the answer for me is a resounding yes.
