Overview

Once you start The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, there's no turning back. This debut thriller—the first in a trilogy from the late Stieg Larsson—is a serious page-turner rivaling the best of Charlie Huston and Michael Connelly. Mikael Blomkvist, a once-respected financial journalist, watches his professional life rapidly crumble around him. Prospects appear bleak until an unexpected (and unsettling) offer to resurrect his name is extended by an old-school titan of Swedish industry. The catch—and there's always a catch—is that Blomkvist must first spend a year researching a mysterious disappearance that has remained unsolved for nearly four decades. With few other options, he accepts and enlists the help of investigator Lisbeth Salander, a misunderstood genius with a cache of authority issues. Little is as it seems in Larsson's novel, but there is at least one constant: you really don't want to mess with the girl with the dragon tattoo

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When Swedish novelist Stieg Larsson died in 2004, his Millennium Trilogy was only an unpublished manuscript; now, less than six years later, these three volumes (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo; The Girl Who Played with Fire; The Girl Who Kicked the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.

    I can't stop reading it

    On the first 30 pages I was about to quit this book cause it didn't catch me, but now I can't wait to have some time off and keep reading it. The way the book it's written let you catch every single detail and you feel like you are part of the story.

    Con una trama emocionante,recomiendo leer.

    Escrito con un idioma facil y no complicado,el autor nos consigue contar una historia intrigante,curiosa y para por el momento,no con un final que se sepa por anticipado.Al terminar la lectura ya estas buscando en las tiendas la 2 y 3 de la trilogia....al que le gusta un triler de idioma facil y sin ser enrevesado.Genial.

    Un libro como pocos!!!!

    Hace mucho tiempo no leia un libro tan interesante y con una descripcion tan perfecta que hace que el lector se sienta comodo e inmerso en la historia de principio a fin. El legado de este libro es unico, hace mucho tiempo el suspenso habia desaparecido y ahora solo no volvio sino que trajo consigo a los personajes perfectos en busca de la verdad escondida.
