In this final graphic novel adaptation of Stieg Larsson's international bestseller, Lisbeth Salander lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She's fighting for her life in more ways than one: If and when she recovers, she'll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge--against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that nearly destroyed her life.

Praise for THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO: "THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO is the rare comic book adaptation that actually works. If you've read the book and seen the movies, then you might as well go all in and check out Vertigo's take on THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. It's the story you remember, with a modern comic flare that gives a visual life to these characters." --Complex Magazine
"Denise Mina (HELLBLAZER, A SICKNESS IN THE FAMILY) is right at home here, diving head first into the Swedish crime series without any reservations of losing the reader along the way. Vertigo's THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO BOOK 1 is an enjoyable and intelligent crime yarn that is almost minimalist in its presentation." --IGN
"It's hard to imagine someone better suited to adapt Stieg Larsson's THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO as a graphic novel than Scottish crime author Denise Mina." --Los Angeles Times/Hero Complex"
