It is NOT a thriller. You may be thrilled to read it, but that doesn't make it a thriller. It is a mystery. I know some thrillers have mystery elements to them. But in this case, it's a mystery and not a thriller.
What are you, the Genre Police? The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo IS a thriller. Prove that it isn't. Sure, it's a mystery. It's also a thriller. Things can be more than one genre, you know. It's not a mutually exclusive sort of proposition.

Violence, characters in peril, serial killers, and an ominous vibe throughout equals "thriller" in my book. Maybe we could do a little poll, assuming anyone else is even interested in weighing in on such a stupid argument.
