Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy Deluxe Box Set: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with .

Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy Deluxe Box Set: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, Plus On Stieg Larsson. Although this book is the first of a trilogy (now a tetralogy thanks to an author working from the manuscripts Larsson left behind prior to his untimely death), it stands well on its own right. It is a dark and moody book, much like Sweden in which the book is set, and much like the character for whom the book is named. The text does not grab the reader immediately with graphic descriptions of horrific events.

Just finished reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Excellent boo. reat stor. elievable characters. Too bad the author died before he got the accolades due him. Will certainly read the next two. I hope that Larssons’ relatives can read this and see how many people love their beloved’s works. I wish them all the best, to be proud of their famous family member and to find at least some consolation in this world-wide success and recognition for their late Stieg Larsson. May God rest him and reward him for all the good he has given us! - Trixi

A Friday in November. Blomkvist had published a book about financial journalism and quoted extensively a number of idiotic articles written by Borg. Borg came across as a pompous ass who got many of his facts upside down and wrote homages to dot-com companies that were on the brink of going under. When thereafter they met by chance in a bar in Söder they had all but come to blows.

The first novel in a trilogy delivered to his Swedish publishers shortly before the author’s premature death, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - which has since become a bestseller - combines a contemporary feminist polemic with a good old-fashioned thriller. That the hero Mikael Blomkvist is a campaigning journalist specialising in expos?s of the dubious financial dealings of international corporations does not prevent him from being attractive to the ladies; quite the reverse.

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder - and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.

Although this book is the first of a trilogy (now a tetralogy thanks to an author working from the manuscripts Larsson left behind prior to his untimely death), it stands well on its own right. It is a dark and moody book, much like Sweden in which the book is set, and much like the character for whom the book is named. The text does not grab the reader immediately with graphic descriptions of horrific events. It begins almost pianimissimo and in a molto adagio style (with a few moments of high tension scattered through the book) rises towards a crescendo towards the end as the protagonist is captured by the villain and escape seemed impossible. These musical metaphors are quite apt because the book moves like a Mozartian symphony.

The two central characters are well fleshed out. Even the bizarre appearance and behavior of Lisbeth Salander becomes nor only acceptable but also understandable. Mikael Blomkvist, the ostensible protagonist (or is the titular "girl with the dragon tattoo" the true protagonist of this novel?), receives a great deal of attention from the author, but his role is more expository rather than a study in character. Lisbeth Salander is very much a study in character, and even though she is missing from key scenes, even large swaths of the book, yet her brooding presence never disappears entirely.

This truly was one of those rare books you never wanted to end, and even through The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo stands well on its own as a novel, I look forward to reading other books in the series.

You have heard of this book from watching one or both of the movies that have sprung from it, but do yourself a favor: take the time to read through this one. It is a fantastic story involving a complex mystery and engaging real-world characters. The overarching theme though is the spotlight that the author, Stieg Larsson, places on Swedish culture's egregious acceptance of violence against women. Lisbeth Salander is the tattooed girl referred to in the book's title. She is an orphan, a ward of the state, a hacker with a photographic memory who works for a private investigation firm, and a young woman who refuses to be a victim. She is an amazing character, a real woman with strengths and flaws but who can be held up to us all as an example to admire and to aspire to in regard to her drive, intelligence, and agency. It is written well, despite being translated into English from Swedish, and because the hacking described within is not exaggerated and could actually work, it is worthy of consideration for the cyber security canon. You should have read this by now.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is an intriguing book title. It's also an intriguing description of the female protagonist in this story. She is a 24 year old computer hacker with a photographic memory, a screwed up personal life, and a big chip on her shoulder. The male protagonist is a disgraced financial journalist who has been found guilty of libel, and whose business magazine he is part owner of is on the verge of shutting down. The two are hired by the elderly head of a wealthy family to find out what happened to his beloved niece who disappeared 40 years prior.

I loved this book in spite of the graphic sadistic violence and the unfamiliar Swedish names and words sprinkled through the book. The plot was suspenseful and kept me interested right to the end. I am definitely looking forward to reading the other two books in the series.

As others have mentioned this book is slow off the mark; but eventually, maybe 30% of the way in (I'm reading the kindle edition so there are no page numbers), we reach cruising speed at last. Then it comes into its own as a really first-class thriller and the kind of book one doesn't want to put down. My advice: it pays to persevere!

At times, the language of the English translation is a bit too goose-steppingly wooden, but one gets over that in short order.

Some readers objected to the author's including a few menus for snacks enjoyed by the protagonists. For my part, I found that of interest, and have adopted one of them for my own repertoire: marinated herring, sour cream or tadziki and chives, bread, beer. Quick and nutritious. Thanks, Stieg!

For truly boring, endless and perfectly irrelevant menu descriptions, one cannot beat the ones saddled upon the reader in the appalling books #4 & 5 of the medieval saga _Game_of_Thrones_ by George R. R. Martin. In comparison, Mr. Larsson is countless light years above that.

Happy reading!

Pompous, dull, stuffed with a deadly showing-off-my-research thread about a financial journalist's career and enthralling details of Swedish commerce. You can tear off the first inch of the book and never miss it. Every main character is a gorgeous sexual bombshell and an offhand genius--oh, and wealthy--and none of them mind sharing. Everyone loves them and you know they'll come out on top. The relationships are a combination of some lonely virgin guy's uninformed fantasies and alienated family members out of Henrik Ibsen or maybe Beckett, blazing with fifty-year-old hate. The freakier characters are so out of date it's embarrassing--mad Nazi torturers in 2000? with underground abbatoirs (didn't the tax assessor notice?), perverted social workers abusing their power, aphasic sociopath/genius computer hacks who can't cry and live unwashed in rat warrens, yet can walk into Swiss banks and discuss investments or impersonate a gilded heiress without a bit of coaching. Did I mention that, after building the tiny character of a friendly cat, the author kills and mutilates it as an important plot twist (so you can't avoid it)? This is a few hours you'll never get back.
