Description: A Swedish novel featuring crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist investigating a decades old disappearance of a child. He is helped by researcher Lisbeth Salander, a genius computer hacker, non-conformist, socially challenged individual and the girl with the dragon tattoo. The investigation and Mikael's simultaneous attempts to expose a corrupt industrialist become interwoven. This examination of individual and corporate corruption and disturbing family dysfunction combines the classic components of carefully crafted 'whodunnit' with the fast paced action of a page-turning thriller. Its imperfect but intriguing characters will have you thinking about them well after you have finished the last page. British Book Awards Winner, Crime Thriller of the Year 2009.

Comments from Groups:

"Certainly caused plenty of discussion! Most admitted to reluctance to read after starting the first few chapters and then found they couldn't put it down. One member had to go and buy the other two volumes." Hamilton 010

"Great crime story! Everybody got "˜sucked' into it – also members who hardly read crime stories." Turangi 001

"Evoked the longest discussion to date. Extremely well received – sequels sought." Napier 021

"A great read – fantastic characterisation especially Lisbeth – we admired her attitude and resilience." Nelson 034
