Summary:

It’s about the disappearance forty years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden . . . and about her octogenarian uncle, determined to know the truth about what he believes was her murder.

It’s about Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently at the wrong end of a libel case, hired to get to the bottom of Harriet’s disappearance . . . and about Lisbeth Salander, a twenty-four-year-old pierced and tattooed genius hacker possessed of the hard-earned wisdom of someone twice her age who assists Blomkvist with the investigation. This unlikely team discovers a vein of nearly unfathomable iniquity running through the Vanger family, astonishing corruption in the highest echelons of Swedish industrialism and an unexpected connection between themselves.

Contagiously exciting, it’s about society at its most hidden, and about the intimate lives of a brilliantly realized cast of characters, all of them forced to face the darker aspects of their world and of their own lives.

    This book was AWESOME! I had a hard time getting out of the car and would sit in the garage just listening many evenings after coming home from work. My 27 year old daughter carpools with me, and she was mesmerized as well. Just waiting with baited breath for the next in this series to come in the mail!

    This was a very interesting book . The characters were great and the plot of the book kept me interested in what would happen next. The reader was excellent and did the various voices so you thought they're were many readers. I can't wait to read the next one with Lizabeth Salander.
