The first book in the Millennium series featuring Lisbeth Salander - the global publishing phenomenon
With an Introduction by Val McDermid
Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder - and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family.
He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history.
But the Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.
Stieg Larsson's phenomenal trilogy is continued in The Girl in the Spider's Web and The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye by David Lagercrantz
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The shivers come naturally in Stieg Larsson’s hit thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Journalist Mikael Blomkvist is fighting to keep his magazine, Millennium, afloat. He’s offered an out: his problems vanish if he investigates the decades-old disappearance of a girl. He agrees, launching us on a terrifying journey where he meets Lisbeth Salander, a misfit freelance investigator battling her own demons. Larsson’s co-protagonists are unforgettable. It’s no wonder that the late Swedish novelist's tale of depravity—the first book in the Millennium series—became a bestseller and put Scandinavian noir on the map.
