Publisher's Summary

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder - and that the killer is a member of his own family. He employs journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate.

When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.

    "Salandar & Bloomkist not to be missed!"

    A truly gripping crime writer, as others have noted it did take a couple of chapters to get the gist of what was going on, but after that I was hooked! really recommend it although there were some nights when I fell asleep with the lights on after listening. what a scarydey cat!

    "A book to listen!"

    I loved listening to this book, an excellent story line with great characters. The Swedish names and places was pronounced precisely. I can't wait to listen to the next book - The Girl Who Played with Fire which is currently on my wishlist for next month!

    "Great characters in a fascinating landscape"

    I held off watching the recent film before finishing the book and I'm glad I did - even though the film is very good, as it happens!
    There is a lot of detail to wade through, all of which might be relevant and the mystery itself is involving enough, but it's the characters themselves who make the journey worthwhile. And in Lisbeth Salander the author created a masterpiece - she is complex, unpredictable and driven by her mysterious past. I'm not a connoisseur of crime fiction - but this struck me as a good balance of meticulous fact-finding and thrilling surprises. The strong, steady narration made sense of the difficult Swedish words and carried me through the lurid bits sedately.

    "Loved it!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and didn't want to put it down once I'd started. I then launched myself straight into the second book, although this first one is definitely my favourite in the trilogy. Salander is such a well written character, and the twists and turns in the story were gripping to the end....Fantastic!

    "Dragon Tattoo"

    Best book I have listened to for a long time. Narrator is brilliant and have been searching all books he has narrated not chosen by Author as I could listen to his character voices for simply hours.

    "Everything is right"

    This crime story has a totally gripping plot starring totally amazing characters ? Lisbeth Salander is one of a kind - you must get to know her. The book is extremely well researched and written and the narrator is doing a great job too. I have seen all 3 brilliant movies already, but the book has so much more to offer, believe it or not. I can't recommend this title enough. ENJOY!

    "Can't see it myself"

    I was recommended to listen to this book and I wish they hadn't! Another VERY long book. I struggled to stay focussed. It had loads of potential but just didn't live up to it. Could have resolved everything in half the time. I won't be listening to the other two books which follow. Life is just too short!
