Overview


Harriet Vanger desapareció hace treinta y seis años en una isla sueca propiedad de su poderosa familia. A pesar del despliegue policial, no se encontró ni rastro de la muchacha. ¿Se escapó? ¿Fue secuestrada? ¿Asesinada? El caso está cerrado y los detalles olvidados. Pero su tío Henrik Vanger, un empresario retirado, vive obsesionado con resolver el misterio antes de morir. En las paredes de su estudio cuelgan cuarenta y tres flores secas y enmarcadas. Las primeras siete fueron regalos de su sobrina; las otras llegaron puntualmente para su cumpleaños, de forma anónima, desde que Harriet desapareció. Mikael Blomkvist acepta el extraño encargo de Vanger de retomar la búsqueda de su sobrina. Periodista de investigación y alma de la revista Millennium, dedicada a sacar a la luz los trapos sucios de la política y las finanzas, Blomkvist está vigilado y encausado por una querella por difamación y calumnia presentada por un gran grupo industrial que amenaza con arruinar su carrera y su reputación. Contará con la colaboración inesperada de Lisbeth Salander, una peculiar investigadora privada, socialmente inadaptada, tatuada y llena de piercings, y con extraordinarias e insólitas cualidades.Así empieza esta magnífica novela que es la crónica de los conflictos de una familia, un fascinante fresco del crimen y del castigo, de perversiones sexuales y trampas financieras; un entramado violento y amenazante en el que, no obstante, crecerá una tierna y frágil historia de amor entre dos personajes absolutamente inolvidables.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

When Swedish novelist Stieg Larsson died in 2004, his Millennium Trilogy was only an unpublished manuscript; now, less than six years later, these three volumes (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo; The Girl Who Played with Fire; The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest) are worldwide sensations, selling more than 27 million copies in 40 countries. And that was before the recent release of the English translation of the third volume and the U.S. premiere of the Swedish film based on the first book. These Spanish-language paperback will only heighten the interest and spread the word!

Library Journal
This complex, multilayered tale, which combines an intricate financial thriller with an Agatha Christie-like locked-room mystery set on an island, grabs the reader from the first page. Convicted of libeling a prominent businessman and awaiting imprisonment, financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist agrees to industrialist Henrik Vanger's request to investigate the 40-year-old disappearance of Vanger's 16-year-old niece, Harriet. In return, Vanger will help Blomkvist dig up dirt on the corrupt businessman. Assisting in Blomkvist's investigation is 24-year-old Lisbeth Salander, a brilliant but enigmatic computer hacker. Punkish, tattooed, sullen, antisocial, and emotionally damaged, she is a compelling character, much like Carol O'Connell's Kathy Mallory. Sweden may be the land of blondes, Ikea, and the Midnight Sun, but Larsson, who died in 2004, brilliantly exposes its dark heart: sexual violence against women, a Nazi past, and corporate corruption. Highly recommended. [LJ 8/15/08]

Meet the Author

Stieg Larsson

Stieg Larsson, who lived in Sweden, was the editor in chief of the magazine Expo and a leading expert on antidemocratic right-wing extremist and Nazi organizations. He died in 2004, shortly after delivering the manuscripts for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest.

Biography

Born in Västerbotten in northern Sweden in 1954, Stieg Larsson had a professional career that bears a striking resemblance to that of the protagonist of his Millennium thrillers, Mikael Blomkvist. Beginning as a graphic designer for the news agency Tidningarnas Telegrambyrå (TT), Larsson went on to become the chief editor of Expo, the magazine published by the Expo Foundation, an organization he helped establish in 1995 to combat racism and the Swedish right-wing extremist movement.

Inspired by an old joke shared with a colleague at TT, Larsson admitted he started writing the Millennium novels -- The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and Castles in the Sky (working English title) -- just for fun. Describing them as "pension insurance," Larsson said he enjoyed the process of fiction writing so much that he didn't make contact with a publisher until he had completed the first two and had a third under way. Though Larsson died of a heart attack in 2004 and never saw any of his books in print, all three were subsequently published in Scandinavia and continental Europe to great acclaim. He left behind the unfinished manuscript for a fourth book in the series.
