Stieg Larsson's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played With Fire, from the Swedish author's internationally bestselling Millennium trilogy, are in first and third place among Amazon's best-selling Kindle e-books for the week ending April 10. In second, according to a list released April 13 by Publishers Marketplace, is Harlan Coben's standalone thriller Caught.

New on the Kindle bestseller list is House Rules, the latest title by perennially best-selling author Jodi Picoult. Released in March, the book tells the story of a teenager with Asperger's Syndrome who is accused of murder. Picoult is also the author of Handle With Care, Change of Heart, and My Sister's Keeper, which was made into a film.

Also new to the top ten is Robin and Ruby by K.M. Soehnlein, author of the 2001 coming-of-age novel The World of Normal Boys. Robin and Ruby follows that novel's protagonist, the now-20-year-old Robin MacKenzie, as he continues to grow up in America in the turbulent mid-1980s.
