Laura P. said:
Absorbing tale of betrayal and family secrets that builds slowly to a pulse racing, shattering climax. A dark tone with fantastic characters and an interesting look into Swedish culture. Not to be missed.

I could not get enough of this book. I did not want to put it down, I even thought of the characters while not reading. After I watched the movie, reading the subtitles and was not disappointed by the story line or the characters. The next book is on my list to read soon.

Ted's Review said:
I enjoyed this book quite a bit, but found it a bit odd that there were two plot lines. When the first was concluded, it focused on the second. It was an odd construction and seemed like two booked combined into one. I wonder which characters move onto to the second and third books in the trilogy.

Forty years ago Harriet Vanger, a member of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden disappeared and her uncle Henrik wants to know the truth about what he believes was her murder. Henrik hires a disgraced Mikael Blomkvist to get to the bottom of Harriet’s disappearance. Along the way Mikael is aided by Lisbeth Salander a tattooed genius hacker to get to the truth. The novel moves along quickly weaving together many plots and themes, including the disappearance of Harriet, Nazism in Sweden, abuse of women and wealth and fraud. I had seen the movie prior to reading the book--which I enjoyed--but really found the book much more satisfying. Would strongly recommend this novel. 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
