An international publishing sensation, Stieg Larsson's Girl with the Dragon Tattoo combines murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue into one satisfyingly complex and entertainingly atmospheric novel.
Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden's wealthiest families disappeared over forty years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate. He is aided by the pieced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander. Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption.

At first, I admit that I didn't think I was going to enjoy this book. It was a little dry with all of the business facts and I wasn't sure where the story was going. However, the second half of this book made up for the dullness that I endured. I really thought Lisbeth Salander was an awesome character, and I hope that she is in the later installments of this book series. I cannot wait to see what happens next!
