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.

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.
*********************** The phenomenal international bestseller - 100 million copies of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series sold worldwide. One of the Bookseller's 30 most influential books of the last 30 years. What a cracking novel! I haven't read such a stunning thriller debut for years. Brilliantly written and totally gripping Minette Walters With an Introduction by Val McDermid 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. 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. Stieg Larsson's groundbreaking trilogy is continued in The Girl in the Spider's Web, The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye and The Girl Who Lived Twice by David Lagercrantz
