Publisher Comments:

Lisbeth Salander is a wanted woman. Two Millennium journalists about to expose the truth about the sex trade in Sweden are brutally murdered, and Salander's prints are on the weapon. Her history of unpredictable and vengeful behaviour makes her an official danger to society — but no-one can find her anywhere. Meanwhile, Mikael Blomkvist, editor-in-chief of Millennium, will not believe what he hears on the news. Knowing Salander to be fierce when fearful, he is desperate to get to her before she is cornered and alone. As he fits the pieces of the puzzle together, he comes up against some hardened criminals, including the chainsaw-wielding 'blond giant' — a fearsomely huge thug who can feel no pain. Digging deeper, Blomkvist also unearths some heart-wrenching facts about Salander's past life. Committed to psychiatric care aged 12, declared legally incompetent at 18, this is a messed-up young woman who is the product of an unjust and corrupt system. Yet Lisbeth is more avenging angel than helpless victim — descending on those that have hurt her with a righteous anger terrifying in its intensity and truly wonderful in its outcome.


"Warning — addictive thriller. All who taste it get hooked!" Elle

This book just gets you going on the trilogy. Larsson somehow involves his readers with the intrigues of technology and high finance with engaging characters and plots lines that twist and turn. He does not prey on gratuitous suspense but you want to sit and read until there is no more.

Stieg Larsson introduced us to one of the most interesting/strange characters ever created in literature. We were mesmerized in this book (and the subsequent two other books) with her life story. He was a gifted writer who died far too young.

If you thought that The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo dragged you through the wringer, wait until you read this one - and then the third one in the series. Outstanding, gripping storytelling at it's very best.
