Lisbeth Salander is a wanted woman. Two Millennium journalists about to expose the truth about sex trafficking in Sweden are murdered, and Salander's prints are on the weapon. Her history of unpredictable and vengeful behaviour makes her an official danger to society - but no-one can find her. Mikael Blomkvist, Millennium magazine's legendary star reporter, does not believe the police. Using all his magazine staff and resources to prove Salander's innocence, Blomkvist also uncovers her terrible past, spent in criminally corrupt institutions. Yet Salander is more avenging angel than helpless victim. She may be an expert at staying out of sight - but she has ways of tracking down her most elusive enemies.

Review quote

'Intelligent, complex, with a gripping plot and deeply intriguing characters' Philip Pullman, Guardian. 'A frighteningly suspenseful mystery' Harlen Coben. 'Brilliantly written and totally gripping' Minette Walters. 'As vivid as bloodstains on snow' Lee Child. 'In her (Salander) Larsson has created a heroine unique to detective fiction. Where else can you find a bisexual female detective with punk-era fashion sense who just happens to be an expert computer hacker?' Independent. 'Star of the show is, once again, the brilliant and misanthropic computer hacker, Lisbeth Salander, an eccentric and unique heroine ... it is tightly orchestrated, with all the twists and turns of an old-fashioned spy novel, and the most jaw-dropping ending' Kate Mosse. 'As good as crime writing gets', Times Literary Supplement. 'Even more gripping and astonishing than the first ... this novel will leave readers on the edge of their seats' Sunday Times.
