The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: Unabridged Audiobook by Stieg Larsson

Lovereading view...

This is an unabridged audiobook title.

Winner of the Galaxy Crime Thriller of the Year 2009.

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.

This is an Unabridged audiobook title, which includes every word that you would otherwise find in the printed edition. Don’t forget, if the story was meant to be shorter the author would have written less! Click here to take a peek at our selection of Unabridged audiobooks.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: Unabridged Audiobook by Stieg Larsson

Duration: 18h 15m (approx.) on 17 CD(s)
Narrated by Saul Reichlin

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder - and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate.


'A publishing sensation who seemingly came from nowhere - crime fiction has seldom needed to salute and mourn such a stellar talent as Larsson's in the same breath' - Sunday Times

'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

About the Author

Stieg Larsson

Stieg Larsson, born in 1954, was a journalist. He was the Editor-in-Chief of the magazine Expo from 1999, and had previously worked at a major news agency for many years.

He was one of the world's leading experts on anti-democratic, right-wing extremist and Nazi organisations, and was often consulted on that account. He died suddenly and unexpectedly in November 2004, soon after delivering the manuscripts for three crime novels to his Swedish publisher. 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 his work has become.

Maxim Jakubowski's view on LISBETH SALANDER...

Pierced, tattooed and garbed in extreme punk attire, computer hacker Salander is the touching, vulnerable but mightily determined heroine of the late Swedish author Stieg Larsson’s acclaimed and best-selling MILLENNIUM series. The final book to be published is THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET’S NEST. Not a heroine cut from the usual detective cloth but a truly memorable one.

Millennium series:
1. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
2. The Girl Who Played with Fire
3. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest
