Recommendations from Julie

The Adversary by Michael Walters
Minister of security Nergui is investigating the police department looking for corrupt cops and Doripalam, the chief of police is investigating the death of a woman. Both mysteries lead to Muunokhoi, a seemingly corrupt businessman. The story takes place in Mongolia and involves nomadic people living in gers plus a brief discussion of how the fall of the USSR made some criminals very wealthy. An interesting part of the world.

The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson
This series, which began with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, continues to get better and more exciting. I love the character Lisbeth--she's about the most complicated character I've come across in a long time. Larsson is a great writer and I am mourning the fact that he died after this series. But I still can't wait to read the next, and final, book in the series. This is truly an outstanding series.
