"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
