The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Stieg Larsson I gave it almost 200 pages, and I still didn't care about the story or anyone in it. Occasionally, two or three pages would peak my interest, only to be followed by ten to twenty pages of exposition and backstory, generally delivered via monologue and/or research report. I hear it has a great finish, but that doesn't make it worth my time to read a bad book.
