Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder – and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family.

He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history.

But the Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.

Swedish enigma

Sweden is indeed enigmatic; perhaps all countries are? This is a novel which becomes addictive even with its darkness and violence. Larsson crusaded against the mistreatment of women and corruption in business. These are the themes of the book, which unravel in a complex plot. As the plot progresses we learn something of Swedishness, and the Swedish landscape is more than a background. The book has a reincarnation of Pippi Longstocking, and the hero is nicknamed Kalle, Astrid Lindgren’s boy detective. Nordic Noir is a complex genre, or does it merely depict the complexity of the Swedish psyche?

Read this book and you are hooked.

I read this years ago and for some reason, I think it was the abridged version. Whereas this is unabridged with parts primarily from the start that I do not remember reading the first time around. Does this detract from the story? I do not know. What I do know is that if you read the first this one The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo you will need to read the other 2 books. The problem with that it is not the end of the story, sadly Stieg Larsson died, so the fourth book had to be finished by another writer. Now as I said earlier if you read this you will enjoy it and need to read the others.

Wonderfully written. A compelling book

Terrific read. Has to be read before embarking upon the 2 books which follow this. Watched the film first which was a great help. Such intelligence within this story: a tragedy that the author never lived to see his extraordinary success with this trilogy.

Amazing!

I finished this book in 3 days which is a first!

Well worth the wait!

I had heard many verbal reports on how friends had enjoyed this book. I actually had no idea at all about the theme or storyline so it made it all the more interesting. It is, as I’m sure more detailed reviews will state, set in Sweden. My only problem with that was my ability to remember the unusual names as there are a large number of characters. As the book progresses these characters come more to like as we (or rather the principal character) meets them. I think this made the earlier part of the book a little sluggish – possibly MY problem – but as it progressed I got more and more hooked and had to keep reading. The initial plot almost disappears as the much more complicated sub plot appears, and then reappears to enable the book to come to a satisfactory conclusion. It is almost 3 years to the day since I purchased this book – I just wish I’d got round to reading it earlier – it has been well worth the wait!

Excellent – apart from the last 100 pages

 on 27 June 2017
By Partick Potter
The main story is excellent – an investigation into the disappearance of a teenage girl in the sixties. The back story, of the principle character’s issues with a dodgy financier, works well… as a back story. However after the main story comes to an excellent climax the book drifts on for another 100 pages with the back story taking centre stage. That doesn’t work. It is weak and unconvincing compared to what came before.

Salander’s Characterisation lives up to the Hype

 on 21 August 2012
By ARCubitt
It might seem odd to review a bestseller after the hype has died down, but such was the influence of this book over me that I decided that I had to hold off reading it until my own thriller was published. Of course, I couldn’t stay away completely and succumbed to the Swedish film version but I waited until I had a good first draft of my own novel. Why? Because we both had spiky female protagonists and I didn’t want to be unduly influenced by Lisbeth Salander’s characterisation.

A real must read

A real page turner, it is very difficult to put it down. The plot rattles along and the characters are well written. It bears comparison to the Reacher books. It is such a shame that the author has died.

The girl with the Dragon tattoo was very slow to start with I could easily have put it down and read something else but I read on and was not disappointed the story got better and better

I loved the film even though parts were horrific to watch but I then brought the trilogy because I thought reading would be easier than actually watching the films. The main characters were believable and excellent.
