A gripping page-turner full of shocks and surprises

 on 2 October 2017
By Jonathan Fryer
I watched the film of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (the original Swedish version, directed by Niels Arden Oplev) late at night, sitting on the top deck of a cruise ship that was traveling from Accra to Cape Town. The film was projected onto a screen under a star-spangled sky and there was only one other person present, a lady of a certain age, who got up and left hurriedly when the Lisbeth Salander (the girl of the title) launched a particularly calculated and sadistic attack on her sexually exploitative guardian. The film was so brilliant that I was nervous of reading the book, but now I have I acknowledge that it is even richer, more complex, more troubling. It would be the first of what author Stieg Larsson intended to be a whole series of novels, though he died prematurely after completing only three, published posthumously. So he never knew what critical acclaim he would receive — deservedly so, on the basis of this gripping page-turner, where shocks and surprises abound. So of course now I can’t wait to read the other two.

Very Slow to Start but Absolutely Worth Sticking With

If you, like me are a Patrica Cornwall and/or James Patterson fan who has in recent years found yourself wondering “Didn’t I read this already?” about their new releases, then this is the way to go. It’s something completely different and yet strangely similar which will have you feeling like you’ve just started reading crime fiction all over again.

Wonderfully written. A compelling book

 on 28 April 2017

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.

Swedish enigma

 on 11 April 2016
By Kindle Customer
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?

In the beginning

 on 23 September 2017
By Bookman Pete
Re-reading the trilogy and the secret with this book is that its a prologue to the real story, with its own plot and conclusion, to introduce the characters with a few slight hints to what follows, but you really need to read The Girl That Played With Fire and a the Hornets Nest to discover the real story. The 2 subsequent books, by a different author are just bandwagon books.

Couldn’t put it down!

By Christina McDonald
Mikael Blomkvist, a disgraced financial journalist, and computer hacker Lisbeth Salander investigate the disappearance of Harriet Vanger 40 years ago.

A great taster for the feast

 on 27 September 2017
By John Peter Green
The first book in the trilogy. An exceptional read and highly recommended. Tuck up in bed with this and enjoy the slow unfolding of a great series. There’s a lot of mmm or ah as the author fits the pieces together of a puzzle for the reader. Has the ring of authenticity in its journalistic perspective and fine characters. A feast for the gourmet who enjoys the tantalising prospect of even more well written sequels.

Necessary read

 on 5 January 2017
By sam410
I’m slowly working my way through the BBC list of 100 books”you probably should have read but have not” and this is on the list. I was an avid chic lit girl but I m enjoying broadening my reading scope. This book is just ok as far as I’m concerned, it’s very slow to take off and it took two attempts to get into it. I was well over 50 percent through before I was hooked. I didn’t know when I started it that it is apart of a series of three books, this seems obvious now as the first three quarters set a good scene of the two main characters which continue through the other books. The story itself is full of twists and turns and a series of complicated interesting characters which once you get past half way become interesting. The main story line however is predictable from the beginning, but the girl with the dragon tattoo has lots of mileage in the next two books.
