Publisher Comments:

Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy is now available in a complete audio set.

All across America, people are talking about Stieg Larsson’s best-selling novels, set in Sweden and featuring Lisbeth Salander—“one of the most original and memorable heroines to surface in a recent thriller” (The New York Times). The trilogy is an international sensation that will grab you and keep you “reading with eyes wide open” (San Francisco Chronicle). “[It] is intricately plotted, lavishly detailed but written with a breakneck pace and verve” (The Independent, U.K.), but “be warned: the trilogy is seriously addictive.” (The Guardian, U.K.).

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden’s wealthiest families disappeared without a trace more than forty years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle continues to try to discover what happened to her. He hires Mikael Blomkvist, a journalist recently sidelined by a libel conviction, to investigate. Blomkvist is aided by the pierced and tattooed computer prodigy Lisbeth Salander. Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption on their way to discovering the truth of Harriet Vanger’s fate.

The Girl Who Played with Fire

Mikael Blomkvist, now the crusading publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to run a story that will expose an extensive sex trafficking operation. On the eve of its publication, the two reporters responsible for the article are murdered, and the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to his friend Lisbeth Salander. Blomkvist, convinced of Salander’s innocence, plunges into an investigation of the murders. Meanwhile, Salander herself is drawn into a murderous game of cat and mouse, which forces her to face her dark past.

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest

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 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. On her own, she will plot revenge—against the man who tried to kill her, and against the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.

Prentise Wylie, January 1, 2013 (view all comments by Prentise Wylie)
I would not expect an author who calls a 27 year old woman a "girl" to be a widely knowledgeable feminist, but these are among the most woman-supportive books I have ever read, set in a milieu of political, medical, journalistic, social, cultural, criminal, economic, governmental, relationship, and sexual intrigue. They are gripping, insightful, informative, interesting, exciting, and believable, with several very strong female characters, not just the "girl." There are some strong male characters, too, and the balance is gratifying.

The only objections I have about these books are: (1) no pronunciation guide for the Swedish words, such as the names of cities, streets, and people, and
(2) some of writing reminds me of children's reading primers from the middle 1900s, in the way the sentences are short and choppy, rather than flowing with conjunctions and better punctuation, such as commas and semi-colons... minor complaints in contrast to the extensive value of these books.

I seldom get "hooked" by mystery novels, but this trilogy grabbed me from the very first chapter and read all three books to the amazement of my wife, sadly noting that many of my chores were left until I was finished reading all three books. I highly recommend these books and it is so sad that there can not be any additional books from this author. I think Stieg Larsson had a lot to comment on with relation of the violence against women and the influence of fascism on past and current realities, including the recent killing in Norway.

Larsson was a most amazing author. Too bad that he was only able to give us three wonderful books. They are my lifetime favorites-----and I am 79 !
