Prior to his sudden death of a heart attack in November 2004, Stieg Larsson finished three detective novels in his Millenium series. Before his career as a writer, Stieg Larsson was mostly known for his struggle against racism and right-wing extremism. In the middle of the 1980s he helped start the anti-violence project "Stop the Racism". This was followed by the founding of the Expo foundation in 1995. In 1999 he was appointed the chief editor of Expo, a magazine published by the organization.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2008-12-01)

Larsson's gripping debut thriller about the decades-old disappearance of a teenage heiress exposes the darkness beneath Sweden's sunny blond veneer and introduces us to the memorable Lisbeth Salander, a tattooed, antisocial computer hacker. (LJ 8/08)

Review by Library Journal (2008-05-01)

Wealthy young Harriet Vanger disappeared 40 years ago, and Uncle Henrik always thought she was murdered. Now he's drafted a hotshot journalist and a tattooed hacker to investigate. An expert on right-wing extremists, Swedish author Larsson died in 2004. This international best seller arrives here with a 100,000-copy first printing.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent book A very good page turner. Only negative is that it takes place in Sweden and the names and places were hard to pronounce and to remember sometimes otherwise a great summer read. 05/19/2010
Rated 2 out of 5★ by Not a best seller... I had to re-read it 5 or 6 times in the beginning. A lot of characters to remember and it doesnt help that the story is based in Sweden. It started slow and got a little insteresting after page 360 ...it was just ok for me not a best seller. Needless to say but it took me a while to finish.. i was a little bummed out. 11/30/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Stieg Larsson's Books "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by Stieg Larsson is the first of a marvelous triology of fiction written by the Swedish author who died of a heart attack after submitting the books to his publisher. The books should be read in order; the second book is "The Girl Who Played With Fire", and the 3rd book is "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest".The first book acquaints you with the characters, and if you like detective stories, you will love these. This book was used as a gift for someone who wanted to read Stieg Larsson's books. 10/11/2010
