“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a striking novel. 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 "I doubt you will read a better book this year.” —Val McDermid Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared off the secluded island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger family.

He hires a competent assistant: the gifted and conscience-free computer specialist Lisbeth Salander, and the two 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.

The Girl Rules. Purchase Stieg Larsson's internationally bestselling Millennium Trilogy—now in a single ebook format. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared off the secluded island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger family. There was no corpse, no witnesses, no evidence. Her uncle, Henrik, is nonetheless convinced that she was murdered by someone from her own deeply dysfunctional family. Disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist is hired to investigate, but he quickly finds himself in over his head. Then he hires the gifted and conscience-free computer hacker Lisbeth Salander as his assistant—and the two unravel a dark and appalling family history, a vein of astonishing corruption, and an unexpected connection between themselves. The Girl Who Played with Fire Salander, the troubled, wise-beyond-her-years hacker from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, is suspected of the murder of two journalists who have uncovered an extensive sex trafficking operation—one that implicates highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. Blomkvist, alone in his belief in her innocence, plunges into his own investigation of the slayings. Drawn into a hunt in which she is the prey, Lisbeth is compelled to revisit her dark past in an effort to settle with it once and for all. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest In the stunning conclusion to the Millennium Trilogy, Salander is fighting for her life and poised to stand trial for a triple murder. With Blomkvist's help she'll not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge against the man who tried to kill her. Over 45 million copies sold worldwide. Read the books. See the films.

As Lizbreath delves deeper into their history she realises that these dragons will do anything to defend their secrets. Welcome to the world of The Dragon With The Girl Tattoo. A world of gloomy Nordic dragons leading lives uncannily like our own (despite their size, despite the need for extensive fireproofing of home furnishings), a world of money hoarded, a world of darkness and corruption.

Lisbeth Salander, heroine of Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and its sequels, is one of the most compelling, complex characters of our time. Is she an avenging angel? A dangerous outlaw? What makes Salander tick, and why is our response to her—and to Larsson's Millennium trilogy—so strong? In The Psychology of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, 19 psychologists and psychiatrists attempt to do what even expert investigator Mikael Blomkvist could not: understand Lisbeth Salander. • What does Lisbeth's infamous dragon tattoo really say about her? • Why is Lisbeth so drawn to Mikael, and what would they both need to do to make a relationship work? • How do we explain men like Martin Vanger, Nils Bjurman, and Alexander Zalachenko? Is Lisbeth just as sexist and as psychopathic as they are? • What is it about Lisbeth that allows her to survive, even thrive, under extraordinary conditions? • How is Lisbeth like a Goth-punk Rorschach test? And what do we learn about ourselves from what we see in her?
