Ten top books about women in trouble…who fought back

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog, Rebecca Jane Stokes tagged ten top books about women in peril…who fought back, including:
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson

Sometimes it takes tattoos, piercings, technological prowess, and a history of violence to solve a murder. In this first novel in Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy, we meet the gruff and troubled Lisbeth Salander, who, with journalist Mikael Blomkvist, tries to solve a crime committed over 40 years ago.
Read about another entry on the list.

The Millennium Trilogy is one of Ken Follett's five best trilogies, and Lisbeth Salander is one of Anne Holt's top ten female detectives. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo made Maureen Corrigan's top five list of crime & mystery novels of 2008, Camilla Läckberg's top ten list of Swedish crime novels, and is one of Lynda Bellingham's six best books.
