“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is a fast-paced mystery with a compelling plot, and with even more compelling characters. I was totally hooked by this story, and Lisbeth Salander has quickly become one of my favorite characters. She's tough, independent, clever, and vulnerable all at once, and I loved following her through the twists and turns of this amazing book.”
-- Elizabeth Jordan, Book People, Austin, TX

Praise For The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

"Wildly suspenseful...an intelligent, ingeniously plotted, utterly engrossing thriller." —The Washington Post

"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." —The New York Times

"Unique and fascinating.... It's like a blast of cold, fresh air to read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." —Chicago Tribune

"A whip-smart heroine and a hunky guy who needs her help? This sexy, addictive thriller is everything you never knew you could get from a crime novel." —Glamour
