This international best selling novel is a spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue.

“Combine the chilly Swedish backdrop and moody psychodrama of a Bergman movie with the grisly pyrotechnics of a serial-killer thriller, then add an angry punk heroine and a down-on-his-luck investigative journalist, and you have the ingredients of Stieg Larsson’s first novel.” —Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
