Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared off the secluded island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger family. There was no corpse, no witnesses, no evidence. But her uncle, Henrik, is convinced that she was murdered by someone in her own family - the deeply dysfunctional Vanger clan. Disgraced journalist Mikael Blomqvist is hired to investigate, but when he links Harriet's disappearance to a string of gruesome murders from forty years ago, he needs a competent assistant - and he gets one: computer hacker Lisbeth Salander - a tattoed, truculent, angry girl who rides a motorbike like a Hell's Angel and handles makeshift weapons with the skill born of remorseless rage. This unlikely pair form a fragile bond as they delve into the sinister past of this island-bound, tightly-knit family. But the Vangers are a secretive lot, and Mikael and Lisbeth are about to find out just how far they're prepared to go to protect themselves - and each other.

Review:
'A violently entertaining trilogy ... may it never end' Arbetarbladet. (Arbetarbladet)

'A publishing sensation, an accomplished crime writer who seemingly came from nowhere ... a memorable debut and deserves most of the hype with which it is being published in this country ... Crime fiction has seldom needed to salute and mourn such a stellar talent as Larsson's in the same breath' Sunday Times. (Sunday Times)

'A huge, 500-plus-page opus, a multilayered, multi-character tale by a writer of some considerable power. Full of social conscience and compassion, with great insight into the nature of moral corruption, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo just knocked me out. During the time I had my nose stuck in its pages, I was thoroughly consumed by the work, and in those periods when I had to put the book down, I found myself grumpy and anxious to return to Larsson's narrative ... when I finally put the book down, I was still unable to sleep, my head filled with the high-definition world that this author has crafted ... already I'm thinking this could be remembered as the best crime novel of 2008 ... This book shows how exhilarating crime fiction can be' Ali Karim, The Rap Sheet website. (Rap Sheet website)

'Stieg Larsson is the best Swedish crime writer of the decade' Kristianstadbladet. (Kristianstadbladet)

'The ballyhoo is fully justified ... At over 500 pages this hardly sagged ... The novel scores on every front - character, story, atmosphere' The Times. (The Times)

'What a cracking novel! I haven't read such a stunning thriller debut for years. The way Larsson interweaves his two stories had me in thrall from beginning to end. Brilliantly written and totally gripping' Minette Walters. (Minette Walters)
