First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday

‘First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday’ is hosted by ‘Bibliophile by the Sea’, where bloggers share the first paragraph of a novel they are currently reading or want to read in the future.

This week’s paragraph comes from ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ by Steig Larsson:

‘The trial was irretrievably over; everything that could be said had been said, but he had never doubted that he would lose. The written verdict was handed down at 10.00 on Friday morning, and all that remained eas a summing-up from the reporters waiting in the corridor outside the district court.’

Would you continue reading?

  6. I enjoyed this book a lot, but I haven’t read the sequels. I wonder if they’re as spell-binding.
    My Tuesday post features a contemporary romance: GRIFF MONTGOMERY, QUARTERBACK.
