Maybe you still haven't read it yet, annoyed by the tsunami of raves the book has been getting. Don't be prejudiced, the opening novel of the Millennium trilogy is still the best of the bunch. An unforgettable character, a deviously-engineered plot and suitable villains. Don't be in a minority.
August 2008 Book of the Month.
Winner of the Galaxy Crime Thriller of the Year 2009.
The Lovereading view...
A forty year old mystery all mixed up with family feuds, fraud and corruption this is the first of a trilogy. There is plenty to keep your interest hooked and the two main characters are original and engaging. In places it is quite violent and disturbing but this is a superb thriller that keeps you guessing until the end., It is just a shame that the author died shortly after turning in the three manuscripts for this trilogy and we will not have any more from this interesting author.
One fateful day several years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared off the secluded island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger family. There was no corpse, no witnesses and no evidence.
Nearly forty years later, investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist reluctantly accepts the unusual and seemingly unsolvable assignment of finding out what really happened to Harriet.
Genius hacker, Lisbeth Salander “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” is drawn into the case and the two form a fragile alliance as they dig into the sinister past of the Vangers and find out just how far they’re prepared to go to protect themselves – and each other.

These novels make up the Millennium Trilogy, which has gone on to sell more that 3 million copies in Sweden alone. Tragically, Larsson did not live to see the worldwide phenomenon ...More About Stieg Larsson
