LoveReading Expert Review of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

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.

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.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Synopsis

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. A violent and bloody thriller; a sinister family saga; a mystery of massive financial fraud; an ambiguous and haunting love story - this is a genuinely complex and unique contribution to crime fiction.
