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.

    Great Series!For adults only.

    I wasn't sure what to expect and I think the first 200 pages of the 1st book "The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo" were a little too detailed for my taste. Sooo many characters mentioned. But once all the background information was laid, the story picked up and I had trouble putting the book down and went on to books 2 and 3 immediately after. It was a rollercoaster experience. Just when you think the story was winding up, another mystery had to be solved. Good read! Some parts were quite graphic. Definitely not a teen book. I would say it is for adults only.

    Be Thrilled

    I love to read, however I must be honest and say that I have not read a book which could make me gasp, laugh or cry since I was 16 years old. I have to admit that when I casually picked up the first in this series, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, I felt uncertain. Now I'm reading it for the second time! I feel thrilled by the story, its coomplications and turns, its characters and their complexity and the author's style of writting that captured me as if in a time machine and deposited me in the middle of the story. It is my first mystery novel and it has made me ravenous for more!!!!!!

    Engrossing series! Don't stop till you finish volume 3

    As a fairly stuffy, pacifistic middle class woman, I am startled by how completely this series captivated me. At first it was the Swedish setting that captivated me: refreshingly different. In the first volume, I wondered at times why the title featured the female character, as she seemed to be a minor story line much of the time . . . but, oh, how her story grew in depth and interest along the way. My amazement is a result of how I weathered through some significantly brutal and graphic scenes simply because I had become profoundly interested in the plot. Harsh as those sections were, they were vital to the story line.

    Had I known about the brutality before I started the first volume, I might have passed it up; that, however, would have been a mistake. Skim through these parts if you must, but do continue to the end. This series was a worthwhile use of my reading time.

    Ahhhh The Stieg Larsson Millennium trilogy!!!

    I had originally purchased this box set years ago when it was first published and somewhere along the line they were water damaged. I noticed it when I pulled out one of the books and the pages were stuck together and upon pulling them apart they were damaged.

    I bought this box set again for several reasons:
    - I really enjoyed this trilogy. The story lines, the writing, everything. Definitely a set that I could pick up again to re-read.
    - LOVED how these books were printed. Their presentation .... beautiful. Loved the cloth covers, loved the maps inside..... for someone building a home library like myself, this is a beautiful collection to have.

    Highly recommend the purchase of this set before it goes out of print

    Outstanding!

    Although not a fan of series, nor books of this type, I was fascinated by this entire set, and highly recommend it for Lisbeth and Michael's great adventures! It is vitally important to read the first book for foundation prior to viewing the movies, which were forced to eliminate numerous Blomkvist relationships due to time constraints. A fast, exciting, enjoyable read......
