Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden disappeared more than 40 years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle is still searching for truth. To investigate, he hires Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently caught in a libel conviction. He's being assisted by ... the pierced and tattooed punk prodigy Lissaboneth Salander. They tap together into a vein of inscrutable iniquity and amazing corruption.
Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, an international publishing sensation, combines murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue into one satisfyingly complex and amusingly atmospheric novel.
