“Lisbeth Salander is one of the most original characters in a thriller to come along in a while.”
--The New York Times
Stieg Larsson’s trilogy that began with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has become this generation’s international bestselling phenomenon.
Disgraced crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist has no idea of the levels of conspiracy he will uncover when is enlisted to investigate the unsolved disappearance nearly forty years ago of a Swedish industrialist’s niece. And when the pierced and tattooed computer savant Lisbeth Salander joins him, together they unearth layers and layers of secrets and scandals that permeate the highest levels of society, from politics to finance to the legal system itself--at the bottom of which lies unimaginable cruelty perpetrated on the weak. In the course of these three shocking, unputdownable thrillers, we encounter one of the most heroic of survivors, as she battles some of the most heartless villains ever imagined.

This trilogy is worth reading, I read and watched these books and I recommend. In my opinion, the first book and film is the best with the second being well second and the last seemed to drag out the fact that the end was near. I am looking forward to the US version since i think the Swedish version could be a bit more graphic, so know that this is not for children. It is worth downloading and buying!!!
This trilogy is an amazing story with complex characters and a plot that is full of twists and turns. Sometimes the detailed historical descriptions of people and events become slightly overwhelming. I I think this is partly due to the fact that it is referencing people and events in Sweden which are completely unfamiliar.
If you can persevere through those sections, it is worth every second. It kept me riveted and I liked the books even better the second time around! Now I am anxious to see it come to life on the big screen!!
Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy
Loved these books and were very are to put down! An intense story with very dense writing and graphic details, so not one to breeze through.. Larsson is masterful at keeping your attention at all times, and also uses his interest in political corruption throughout the story. There are many people, plots, and unusual twists that will keep you guessing and glued to these books. Very highly recommend, and by far the best thriller that I have read in years!
