An International Bestselling Sensation A murder mystery, family saga, love story, and a tale of financial intrigue wrapped into one satisfyingly complex and entertainingly atmospheric novel.Harriet Vanger, scion of one of Sweden's wealthiest families, disappeared over forty years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate. He is aided by the pieced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander. Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption.

'Stieg Larsson is the best Swedish crime writer of the decade' Kristianstadbladet.
'A violently entertaining trilogy ... may it never end' Arbetarbladet.
'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.
'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.
'The ballyhoo is fully justified ... At over 500 pages this hardly sagged ... The novel scores on every front - character, story, atmosphere' 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.
