Duration: 16 hours 21 minutes

Summary:

A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga,
love story, and financial intrigue.

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!

    super slow start...halfway through and I could not understand the hype...and THEN boom! strong finish, solid listen and the narrator did a superb job carrying this book across the finish line...worth the slow start...outstanding (yet super dark)!

    This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. It gave everything a book is supposed to give and more. I enjoyed the audiobook so much I have purchased the series in paperback to reread it Books 2 and 3 just got better to me.

    Loved this book. The first few hours were difficulty to get into because it’s a lot of background info. But once you get past that, the story is amazing!
