The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium Trilogy Book 1)

Product Description

Review

Intelligent, complex, with a gripping plot and deeply intriguing characters. The author's early death is a great loss' Philip Pullman, Guardian. 'As vivid as bloodstains on snow' Lee Child. 'What a cracking novel! I haven't read such a stunning thriller debut for years. Brilliantly written and totally gripping' Minette Walters. 'I doubt you will read a better book this year' Val McDermid. 'So much more than a thriller, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a dazzling novel of big ideas' Harlan Coben. 'Brilliantly written … the characters are superbly drawn and the story grips from first to last' Mail On Sunday. 'A rip-roaring serial-killer adventure' Mail on Sunday. 'An utterly fresh political and journalistic thriller that is also intimate and moral … a feast of a book' Michael Ondaatje. 'The books are selling in their millions across Europe and it's not hard to see why' Spectator. 'The ballyhoo is fully justified … the novel scores on every front' The Times.

A publishing sensation who seemingly came from nowhere … crime fiction has seldom needed to salute and mourn such a stellar talent as Larsson's in the same breath' Sunday Times.

Just when I was thinking there wasn't anything new on the horizon, along comes Stieg Larsson with this wonderfully unique story. I was completely absorbed' Michael Connelly.

Observer

A striking novel, full of passion, an evocative sense of place and subtle insights into venal, corrupt minds

The Girl Who Played with Fire (Millennium Trilogy Book 2)

Review

As good as crime writing gets - Times Literary Supplement. A gripping novel, driven by a mixture of anger and warmth - Financial Times. Darkly wonderful adventure - Scotland on Sunday. Unmissable - London Lite. It’s that rare thing; a thoughtful contemporary thriller with its heart and its head in the right place - Tribune. The huge pleasure of these books is Salander, a fascinating creation - Mark Lawson, Guardian. Even more gripping and astonishing than the first … this novel will leave readers on the edge of their seats - Joan Smith, Sunday Times. An absorbing, exciting and bloody multi-layered chase … the climax is a feast of gore … a riveting read - The Times. Stieg Larsson is, as we say, definitely having a moment … the writing is gripping, the plotting masterly - Rachel Johnson, Sunday Times.

The Girl Who Played with Fire is that rare thing - a sequel that is even better than the book that went before … it is to be read in great hungry chunks - Observer.

It is rare to find a thriller in which the female characters are allowed so much space to be. Lisbeth Salander really is a wonderful creation - Scotsman.

Astonishing novels … Larsson came up with an entirely new kind of heroine for the crime story … as with Larsson’s first novel, this is wonderful stuff - Daily Express.

A year ago, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo won ecstatic praise from British critics and readers. Now its successor, The Girl who Played with Fire has outsold the likes of Patricia Cornwell and James Patterson … once more, another figure seizes the book by the scruff of its neck and binds the reader in fetters of fascination - Independent.

As with the first book, this complex novel is not just a thrilling read, but tackles head-on the kind of issues that Larsson himself railed against in society, such as endemic establishment corruption and the exploitation of women - Daily Mail.

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest (Millennium Trilogy Book 3)


A young girl lies in a hospital room, her tattooed body very close to death -- there is a bullet lodged in her brain. Several rooms away is the man who tried to kill her, his own body grievously wounded from axe blows inflicted by the girl he has tried to kill. She is Lisbeth Salander, computer hacker and investigator, and the man is her father, a murderous Russian gangster. If Salander recovers from her injuries, she is more than likely to be put on trial for three murders -- the authorities regard her as a dangerous individual. But she won't see the inside of a courtroom if her father manages to kill her first.

This is the high-tension opening premise of the third book in Stieg Larsson’s phenomenally successful trilogy of crime novels which the late author (a crusading journalist) delivered to his publisher just before his death. But does it match up to its two electrifying predecessors, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl who Played with Fire? The success of Larsson’s remarkable sequence of books is, to some degree, unprecedented. Crime fiction in translation has, of course, made a mark before (notably with Peter Hoeg’s Miss Smilla’s Feeling for Snow, published, in fact, by Larsson's British publisher, Christopher MacLehose). But even the success of that book gave no hint of the juggernauts that the Salander books would be (the late author's secondary hero is the journalist Blomqvist -- who bears more than a passing resemblance to Stieg Larsson himself).

There are two overriding reasons for the hold that this massive trilogy has attained on the public: machine-tooled plotting which juggles the various narrative elements with a master's touch and (above all) the vividly realised character of Lisbeth Salander herself. She is something of a unique creation in the field of crime and thriller fiction: emotionally damaged, vulnerable and sociopathic (all of this concealed behind a forbidding Goth appearance), but she is also the ultimate survivor, somehow managing to stay alive despite the machinations of some deeply unpleasant villains (and the new book has a slew of those) as well as the hostility of often stupid establishment figures, who want her out of the picture quite as passionately as the bad guys. She is, of course, aided by the protective journalist Blomqvist, despite the fact that she had dumped him as a lover. The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest brings together all the elements that have made the previous books of the sequence so successful. Its relentless pace may be a bit exhausting for some readers, but most will be happy to strap themselves in for the ride. It's just a shame that this will be the final book in the sequence (though conspiracy theorists are hinting that Larsson began another manuscript before his untimely death…)
