Publisher Comments:

Stieg Larssons Millennium Trilogy is now available in a complete hardcover set.

All across America, readers are talking about Stieg Larssons 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.).

“Believe the hype . . . Its gripping stuff.”

People

“Stieg Larsson clearly loved his brave misfit Lisbeth. And so will you.”

USA Today

“Larsson has bottled lightning.”

Los Angeles Times

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Swedens 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 Vangers 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 Salanders 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 Hornets Nest

Lisbeth Salander lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. Shes fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, shell 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 revengeagainst the man who tried to kill her, and against the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.

“Unique and fascinating . . . Like a blast of cold, fresh air.”Chicago Tribune

“Wildly suspenseful . . . Intelligent, ingeniously plotted, utterly engrossing.”

The Washington Post

“A gripping, stay-up-all-night read.”Entertainment Weekly

“Dynamite.”Variety

I ended up reading this entire trilogy in about a months time, and I loved every second of it. In fact, I'm re reading the series now! This was truly the best thing I've read in 2012.

This is a gripping trilogy that I couldn't put down! An unexpected plus was the glimpse into the Norwegian justice system. I'm not generally into crime thrillers but these books were well worth it. I'm just sad we won't be reading any more from him...
