Description
Critics have at once celebrated the appearance of and mourned the loss of Stieg Larsson, a muckraking Swedish journalist who penned three brilliant mystery novels (known as the Millennium trilogy) before he died in 2004. This is the first, and from the opening page it yanks readers into the decades-old mystery—steeped in dirty family secrets—of an aging tycoon and the missing grandneice he adored.

"It's like a blast of cold, fresh air to read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.... What separates Steig Larsson's work from [other Swedish crime fiction] is that it features at its center two unique and fascinating characters: a disgraced financial journalist and the absolutely marvelous 24-year-old Lisbeth Salander—a computer-hacking Pippi Longstocking with pierced eyebrows and a survival instinct that should scare anyone who gets in her way."—Chicago Tribune

"As vivid as bloodstains on snow—and a perfect one-volume introduction to the unique strengths of Scandinavian crime fiction."—Lee Child

"Combine the chilly Swedish backdrop and moody psychodrama of a Bergman movie with the grisly pyrotechnics of a serial-killer thriller, then add an angry punk heroine and a down-on-his-luck investigative journalist, and you have the ingredients of Stieg Larsson's first novel."—NYTimes

"A whip-smart heroine and a hunky guy who needs her help? This sexy, addictive thriller is everything you never knew you could get from a crime novel."—Glamour

"So much more than a thriller, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a dazzling novel of big ideas. It tackles issues of power, corruption, justice, and innocence—all the while drawing you into the twists and turns of a frighteningly suspenseful mystery."—Harlan Coben

"The first U.S. appearance of another major Swedish crime writer is cause for celebration.... The novel offers compelling chunks of investigative journalism, high-tech sleuthing, and psychosexual drama. What a shame that we only have three books in which to watch the charismatic Lisbeth Salander take on the world!"—Booklist

"Dark, labyrinthine, smart, sexy, utterly original, and completely captivating, Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo delights at every level.... This book is artful and grand entertainment. I couldn't recommend it more highly."—John Lescroart

"The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is an utterly fresh political and journalistic thriller that is also intimate and moral. In spite of its dark unearthings Stieg Larsson has written a feast of a book, with central characters you will not forget."—Michael Ondaatje
