"People always have secrets. It´s only a question of finding them out."
The first book in a series of three in the Millennium Series
Stieg Larsson’s debut in crime fiction is something unique. He writes with a powerful feeling for contemporary life and it is effective, very accurate and professional. He also shows that his knowledge stretches across a wide field and this is matched by the depth of his insight, which makes the story very credible. He has a fantastic ability to keep many complicated plots going at once, and he ties them together in a brilliant manner. This is the first of three books about Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander.
Journalist Mikael Blomkvist is given the task of going through an old criminal case: Harriet Vanger who disappeared without trace almost forty years ago. He is being assisted by Lisbeth Salander, a young, difficult woman who knows all about hacking which makes her an unbeatable researcher. Blomkvist and Salander make an unusual pair, but a fantastic team. Together, they are soon on the tracks of a dark and bloody family history.
