The first meeting of the Mystery Reading Club for 09/10 will be held on Tuesday, September 29th at Whodunit at 7pm. This month's selection will be THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO by Stieg Larsson. The book is available for sale at the store.

Questions for discussion are as follows:
1. What is the central theme of this book?

2. Is Salander a likeable protagonist?  Is she a sympathetic  character?  Is there a difference?  What adjective or adjectives would you use to best describe her as a protagonist?

3. What would you think would be the social and political ideology of Steig Larssen?  Is he a feminist?

4. In what ways, if any, is the author sympathetic to Big Business?

5. Is Mikael Blomkvist a “sexploiter?”
