An international publishing sensation, Stieg Larsson8217;s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo combines murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue into one satisfyingly complex and entertainingly atmospheric novel.Harriet Vanger, scion of one of Sweden8217;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 pierced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander. Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption.
Swedish journalist Stieg Larsson penned the Millennium trilogy, which landed on American shores with great anticipation with THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. It's the story of a financial journalist who agrees to investigate a 40-year-old kidnapping in exchange for help with his legal woes. The journalist teams up with a rebellious but savvy young computer hacker, and together the unlikely duo unravel the horrifying, shocking truth at the heart of the case. A complex, intelligent work, Larson's novel became so popular in Denmark that it outsold the Bible. Larsson, however, never got to witness the success of his books, for he died shortly after completing the series.
