The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

“People always have secrets. It´s just a matter of finding out what they are”
Lisbeth Salander

The first book in Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Series, the global publishing phenomenon that has sold a total of 99 million copies to date.

Forty years ago, a young girl named Harriet Vanger disappeared without a trace. Financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist is headhunted by industrial magnate Henrik Vanger to find out what happened to his favourite niece. Blomkvist pairs up with Lisbeth Salander – a difficult young hacker and unbeatable researcher.

Together, they are soon on the tracks of a dark and bloody family mystery.

Reviews

It is amazing

I have read Millennium with the same happiness and feverish excitement I read Dumas and Dickens as a child. It is amazing. This trilogy secretly comfort us. Maybe not everything is lost in this imperfect world. Welcome to the inmortality of fiction, Lisbeth Salander!

Marios Vargas Llosa
It doesn’t get much better than this

And when a writer delivers such a complex and fascinating portrayal like that of Lisbeth Salander all we can do is bow down in gratitude. It doesn’t get much better than this.

Gefle Dagblad (SE)
An authentic phenomenon

An authentic phenomenon/…/Salander represents something new and unique in this genre.

Los Angeles Times (US)
Crime fiction has seldom needed to salute and mourn such a stellar talent as Larsson

Crime fiction has seldom needed to salute and mourn such a stellar talent as Larsson’s in the same breath.”
