Synopsis of this title

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared off the secluded island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger family. There was no corpse, no witnesses, no evidence. But her uncle, Henrik, is convinced that she was murdered by someone in her own family - the deeply dysfunctional Vanger clan. Disgraced journalist Mikael Blomqvist is hired to investigate, but when he links Harriet's disappearance to a string of gruesome murders from forty years ago, he needs a competent assistant - and he gets one: computer hacker Lisbeth Salander - a tattoed, truculent, angry girl who rides a motorbike like a Hell's Angel and handles makeshift weapons with the skill born of remorseless rage. This unlikely pair form a fragile bond as they delve into the sinister past of this island-bound, tightly-knit family. But the Vangers are a secretive lot, and Mikael and Lisbeth are about to find out just how far they're prepared to go to protect themselves - and each other.

Reviews of this title

quotes

Sunday Times
...a publishing sensation...Crime fiction has seldom needed to salute and mourn such a stellar talent as Larsson's in the same breath

Minette Walters
What a cracking novel! I haven't read such a stunning thriller debut for years...Brilliantly written and totally gripping

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

Mail on Sunday
A rip-roaring serial-killer adventure.

Michael Ondaatje
An utterly fresh political and journalistic thriller that is also intimate and moral ... a feast of a book.

Spectator
The books are selling in their millions across Europe and it's not hard to see why.

The Times
The ballyhoo is fully justified ... the novel scores on every front.

Philip Pullman, Guardian.
Intelligent, complex, with a gripping plot and deeply intriguing characters. The author's early death is a great loss.
