Book 5 of 80
It seems so fitting to travel to Sweden next. In the last book, the characters smuggle people out of Nazi occupied Norway into Sweden and there is this touching moment between the father and son that takes place on a trip into Sweden.
So, Sweden. I’m not going to post a You Tube clip of ABBA…but I will offer up this small tid-bit: The movie “Mama Mia” is not a good choice to watch while you are in labor. We had it on in the earlier stages — a nurse brought it in for us to borrow because she felt bad that we had some trouble with taking blood…the tube fell out after my vein collapsed and sprayed blood all over the room — but as I got to be in more pain I wanted to physically tear the TV off of the wall and crush those women’s heads. Has there ever been a movie with more unnecessary squealing?
Anyway, the book I am going to read for here is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson.
This book is wildly popular. I’m excited to read a mystery that will be solved! (Oh please…someone tell me this mystery actually gets solved…)
In full-disclosure, I started reading this book back in December and then accidentally left it at school over the break. I haven’t touched it since then, but I am about 1/3 of the way through already.
