Publisher's Summary

A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue....

It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden...and about her octogenarian uncle, determined to know the truth about what he believes was her murder.

It's about Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently at the wrong end of a libel case, hired to get to the bottom of Harriet's disappearance...and about Lisbeth Salander, a 24-year-old, pierced and tattooed genius hacker possessed of the hard-earned wisdom of someone twice her age, who assists Blomkvist with the investigation.

This unlikely team discovers a vein of nearly unfathomable iniquity running through the Vanger family, astonishing corruption in the highest echelons of Swedish industrialism - and an unexpected connection between themselves.

Listen to the rest of The Millennium Trilogy.

What the Critics Say

"Cases rarely come much colder than the decades-old disappearance of teen heiress Harriet Vanger from her family's remote island retreat north of Stockholm, nor do fiction debuts hotter than this European bestseller . . . At once a strikingly original thriller and a vivisection of Sweden's dirty not-so-little secrets, this first of a trilogy introduces a provocatively odd couple." (Publishers Weekly)

"Combine the chilly Swedish backdrop and moody psychodrama of a Bergman movie with the grisly pyrotechnics of a serial-killer thriller, then add an angry punk heroine and a down-on-his-luck investigative journalist, and you have the ingredients of Stieg Larsson's first novel." (The New York Times)

"The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a striking novel. Just when I was thinking there wasn't anything new on the horizon, along comes Stieg Larsson with this wonderfully unique story. I was completely absorbed." (Michael Connelly)

    "great book"

    amazing job tying in two fanstastic stories that were completely unrelated. I have never been to sweden, but would like to now. it was a little hard to get used to all the swedish names of people and places, but i got used to them quickley enough. only regret was that his sex scenes weren't more detailed. everything else was, but they were a let down. Keep up the great writing and give us more swedish thrillers.

    "The Worst Book in Audible"

    I tried, I really did - 4 hours worth and it never got any better. I've listened to all types of booksd but this one is terrible from every angle. Don't waste your money unless you need a natural Ambien sleeping pill. Awful story, awful development, awful reading. Get the idea? The worst book in Audible!

    "Narrator is Terrible"

    I could not get into this book because I could not understand the person saying it trying over and over to get it!

    "Almost 4"

    I give this 3.6. The characters are well developed interesting, and believable. The book keeps you interested in the first half, and completely absorbed the second half. I don't care for the writing style of following two separate characters, even though it is quite popular among authors these days. I'm going to buy his next his next audiobook.

    "Needs to be Abridged"

    The reader is good. The underlying story is quite good. However, the story is mixed in with much too much (for my tastes) minutiae dealing with 20th Century Swedish politics and social issues. If the Swedish history lesson were to be abridged, the remaining story would be very enjoyable. I did learn, though, that Swedes must have powerful kidneys, enormous bladders, and be wired all the time considering the amount of coffee consumption described in the story.

    "? Why the Hype?"

    I sure don't know what all the hype about this series is. I had a difficult time getting through most of it. I read a couple books a week and will not be going back to read this one again. It is an OK mystery novel full of sex, violence and intrigue. The interesting this is that neither the sex or voilence were graphic or insulting. I spent credits on all three of his books and will continue to read them. I guess It is a matter of preference as to what one prefers. I'd rather read Douglas Preston-Linchild, Stephen Coontz, Dean Coonts, James Patterson and similar books, than this. Since I'v already paid for them I will continue with the series.
