What the Critics Say

"Crime fiction has seldom needed to salute and mourn such a stellar talent as Larsson's in the same breath....A gripping crime debut that lives up to the hype." (The Sunday Times)
"An utterly fresh political and journalistic thriller that is also intimate and moral. In spite of its dark unearthings Stieg Larsson has written a feast of a book, with central characters you will not forget." (Michael Ondaatje)
"A REALLY meaty Nordic thriller." (Daily Mail)
"This is part one of a trilogy that threatens to knock Henning Mankell off his crime writer's throne." (The Guardian)

Unputdownable!

I live in France where everyone seems to be reading Stieg Larsson's Trilogy on the metro, so I jumped at the chance of listening to this book (the first in the series) in English - and I can now understand why everyone is so excited about this work!

The two 'heros'of the story, journalist Mickael Blomkvist and very quirky private investigator Lisbeth Salander are brought together to solve a murder where the body has never been found. In order to do so, they delve into the closed world of a remote Swedish island, where the majority of the inhabitants are members of the privileged industrialit Vanger family...

The author has managed to give the characters depth with few brushstrokes, build suspense and convey the atmosphere of a remote nordic village. This is very largely brought to life by Martin Wenner's excellent reading.

As an avid listener/reader of crime novels, it is a pleasure to hear one written and set in Sweden. It is not often that Scandinavian crime authors get translated into English - a great shame if 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' is anything to go by. When can we expect Stieg Larsson's next two books in the series on Audible? Please make it VERY SOON.

I just loved every single minute of the listen.It was one of the best audiobooks ever.The pace was just right and the characters were fasinating.
I have listened to 100s of audiobooks and this is in my top 3,and maybe my number one.I will not talk about the plot as you will have to listen so you to, can enjoy the brilliant story.
I want to know if this is a trilogy,where are the other 2 books as I was very keen to hear them and when I looked they were nowhere to be seen!!Please audible bring them on.
