Book Description

An International Bestselling Sensation

A murder mystery, family saga, love story, and a tale of financial intrigue wrapped into one satisfyingly complex and entertainingly atmospheric novel.

Harriet Vanger, scion of one of Sweden's wealthiest families, disappeared over forty years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate. He is aided by the pieced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander. Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption.

This sexy, addictive thriller is everything you never knew you could get from a crime novel."--"Glamour" "So much more than a thriller, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a dazzling novel of big ideas.
