 It was published in English in 2009 and straight away became a No. 1 Best Seller in UK and was the first translated novel to do that in the hardback chart.

Plot summary

Lisbeth Salander is wanted for a triple murder. All three victims are connected to a trafficking expose about to be published in Mikael Blomqvists magazine Millenium, and Lisbeths fingerprints are on the weapon.

Lisbeth vanishes to avoid capture by the justice. Mikael, not believing the police, is
despairingly trying to clear her name, using all his resources and the staff of his magazine. During this process, Mikael discovers Lisbeths past, a terrible story of abuse and traumatizing experiences growing up in the Swedish care system.

When he eventually finds her, it’s only to discover that she is far more entangled in his initial investigation of the sex industry than he could ever imagine.

    Really addictive and edge of your seat; fascinating Lisbeth Salader. Very intriguing character. So sad that there won’t be any more after the third. Can’t wait to read that one in June.

  • MARTHA Anderson says:

    At the beginning of The Girl Who Played with Fire there is a description of a young girl tied to a bed. I, for one, never

    figured out who it was and where she is.

    Please, someone tell me who it is. Am I stupid?

    Love the books!

      SPOILER DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT FINISHED BOOK 2.It’s Lisbeth on her 13th birthday at the psychiatric ward. She recalls the experience when she thinks back to Dr. Tollen later in the book.

  • Gina says:

    I just finished reading this book last night. Bring on the Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest! I can’t wait to get my hands on this last installment, although reading it will be bittersweet, as Larrson leaves us wanting more with each book. I am not usually drawn so deeply into a book, but I have to say Stieg Larsson’s works are so well written, I was completely sucked in. I have to agree with others, these books are addicting.

  • Daniel says:

    Hey,

    I’ve read the whole Millennium series. I must say, they are great Crime fiction books. It was great writing and therefore it’s to bad that there won’t be more of that.

    Thanks Stieg.

    - Daniel,


  • Laurie says:

    I’ve read the first two in the trilogy; waiting for the third to be sold in the US. I’ve never read books quite like these, or come across an author quite like Stieg. The books are addicting, and I can’t wait for more of Mikhail and Lisbeth. Stieg, you were awesome.

      I finished reading *TGWDragon Tatto and was psyched to continue… wouldn’t you know it? I received a Kindle for Christmas and immediately ordered the rest of the trilogy. Stayed up until 3:00 reading TGWPWith Fire. If you need instant gratification, instead of running out to buy, Kindle is definitely for you — the books are 30

      -50% cheaper, too.

      Hi, As a non

    My husband and I have listened to the audio tapes The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played With Fire.

    We are smitten by Simon’s oration and hang on each and every word. We are addicted to the cast of characters, plot, and scenic descriptions.

    I can’t stop read… I just want to go on, and on, and on!

    Lisbeth is such an amazing character. I adore her! And what about Blomkvist? A journalist that we’ll deserve in reality!

    Tack vare, Stieg! Rest in peace, damned you!

  • admin says:

    I have just finished reading the the girl with the dragon tattoo! And what a read. I do not usually read crime novels but after reading the first page I was hooked. Nothing else stopped me from reading. I had a painting to finish, gardening which was urgent before the rain came and cooking to do.My husband spoke to me a number of times and I didn’t hear him.I was so wrapped up in the story. B I could not put the book down. I even got up during the night in need to know what came next.

    Now I just have to have the next 2 books.

    All the characters acted out their rolls in my brain the whole time. I was there with them feeling cold in the cottage with Bomkvist and Lisbeth Salander. I now feel lost having come to the end. But I have finished the painting and planted the spring bulbs in my garden. Oh and we have eaten today.

    I ‘m not a reader. Mostly the books were from American writers. You know the ones with American heroes. But the books of Larsson are kindly different. It was a thrill to read those 3 books. And I liked to read about Swedish country, names and the rest.

    Yesterday evening we saw the movie of part I in Oss. No seat in the theatre was left and during 2,5 hour we did not hear any noise from the public. It was special to see the movie and afterwards read further in part III.

    Just finished the 2nd book: “The Girl who Played with Fire”– and all of the above– all true regarding not being able to put down the 2 books.

    Love this series. I was schizo regarding trying to read fast and slowing down at the same time– to prolong the experience of the Lisbeth story.

    She is indeed the heroine of our times. Thank you, Stieg. As with everything, there is a beginning and an ending– the 3rd book may be the end of a beautiful thing.

    My husband heard about the first book from a co-worker. Knowing that I am always looking for the next great book to read, he eagerly told me about it and picked up for me the next day at the bookstore. I started reading it on Saturday evening and finished it Monday evening. If it wasn’t for a jammed pack weekend and work, I probably would have stayed home all day Saturday just to read it start to finish. I read a lot of mystery books and this by far was one of the best books I have ever read! Going out tomorrow to buy the second and third!! Can’t wait to get back into the world Blomqvist and Salander. I am truly addicted!

I am overwhelmed by the plot and the writing skills of Stieg Larsson. I wish he were alive and wrote more books. I hope Lisbeth Salander will prove to be innocent and will lead a normal life, full of love in the 3rd book… I am going to see the 2nd movie today. The 1st book and movie were also great.

  • Jan George says:

    I’ve read the first two of the Millenium trilogy. The quality of Stieg Larsson’s writing, story telling, and characters have spoiled me. Am hesitant, both to read The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest because that’s the end of this brilliant writing, and to pick up anything else to ready, because it will likely pale in comparison.

    • ebonflow, says:

      Difficult to say. If they could keep up the quality then sure. But no one wants anyone to write more, badly. It’s a fantastic series as it is, and if they find someone with the same calibre perhaps they should just start their own series. Or… perhaps their own series, in the same world so to speak. A background story from the villains point of view would be interesting, yet not cramp on Stieg’s style.

  • inlove says:

    I had a hard time getting into the first novel, but once I did I was enraptured by Larsson’s portrayal of Salander and Blomkvist. I finally received the final two books for Christmas. It is one of the most triggering, phenomenal books I have not been able to put down. I read for 12 hours straight until I finished it. I liked how it was slow to get moving because the murders take you off guard. I am itching to read the third, but I need to sleep first :) There were many moments where my jaw hit the floor. An EXCELLENT, albeit long read. I’m dying to watch the movie.

    This is one of the best novels I have ever had the privilege to read! I could hardly put the first one down, and I can’t wait to get the second one. I am saddened to think that there will not be anymore from this writer. I think his talent for making the characters come to life was unsurpassed in the world of mystery. I can’t wait to see what Salander is up to next!

    It was a superb book. If you can get past the Swedish spelling (names of people and places) and concentrate on the story, you’ll find a riveting story full of action and excitment. I really loved the book. In answer to some peoples question on whether the book can be read without reading the first one, I think you can. I would recommend, however, that they be read in order. The second book (The girl who play with fire) ends in such a way that instead of justing ending with the final word, it should have read “to be continued”

  • Rin says:

    The second book in the Millennium Trilogy is quite simply, fantastic. The minute I cracked open the spine I couldn’t put it down for long. Kicking the story off with Salander’s new life reeled me in totally as any scene with her in it is a genuine reading pleasure. I’m not going to include any spoilers in my review, but reading ‘The Girl who Played with Fire’ is like watching a non-stop thriller/action movie that is playing out in your mind.

    Some people have remarked that the book’s shaping of characters as well as certain plot elements are too unbelievable and far-fetched, for eg., Salander’s ‘Superwoman’ powers and ‘return’ from the dead; her half-brother’s medical condition that prevents him from feeling pain. Well, I don’t share those sentiments — come on folks, it’s just fiction! And, like movies, don’t books (especially fiction) serve some form of escapism?

    I was aware that the book ended with a cliffhanger, so I bought the third in advance before I finished the second. I’m glad I did, because immediately after I’d turned the last page, I jumped right into ‘The Girl who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest’.

    Well, that was yesterday night. I’ve started on the first chapter of ‘Hornets’ Nest’ with mixed emotions… I can’t wait to read how the story unfolds, but at the same time, I can’t bear the thought that this is Larsson’s premature sign-off. Meanwhile, I’m also apprehensive that the third book will not be as good as the preceding two, and I’m praying that I won’t be disappointed.

    Had he lived, I’m sure the Millennium series would become as hugely popular and famous as Robert Jordan’s ‘The Wheel of Time’ fantasy epic. Jordan himself died before he could write the conclusion, but, like Larsson, he had made notes and the concluding books could thus be published. I’m hoping then, that Larsson’s fourth book (and possibly more) might eventually see the light of the day. I agree that the author’s style is important, but since Larsson’s works have been translated into English, English-speaking readers will never grasp nor appreciate his original writing fully — and so it is the plot of the books that overall matter much more.

    And what we want is more of Larsson’s brilliant ideas, so never mind who is tasked with writing them. Fans would simply love to know Stieg’s train of thought and his vision for his series (how it would pan out, the fate of the characters).

    It’s just not good enough telling his legions of fans that we should be content with his three books and they are better than one or nothing. If Larsson did leave plot outlines for the remaining books, they should only be fulfilled by being fleshed out and published. Let’s honour his legacy by completing what he started!

    My only regret is that I’ve now become hopelessly addicted to Stieg Larsson’s novels, and that there are no more forthcoming to get my fix. I feel almost robbed.

    The second book in the Millennium Trilogy is quite simply, fantastic. The minute I cracked open the spine I couldn’t put it down for long. Kicking the story off with Salander’s new life reeled me in totally as any scene with her in it is a genuine reading pleasure. I’m not going to include any spoilers in my review, but reading ‘The Girl who Played with Fire’ is like watching a non-stop thriller/action movie that is playing out in your mind.

    Some people have remarked that the book’s shaping of characters as well as certain plot elements are too unbelievable and far-fetched, for eg., Salander’s ‘Superwoman’ powers and ‘return’ from the dead; her half-brother’s medical condition that prevents him from feeling pain. Well, I don’t share those sentiments

    Liked the 1st and 3rd, too much useless sex in 2nd. Stick to thriller. bordered on usless sex too in 1st novel. We get she was messed up, but most wild young girls sleep with young men, sorry old men its true.

    The book didn’t end until the first few chapters of the third book.

    With apprehension, I suspended my natural inclination towards disbelief for the first book and most of the second, but when Lisbeth, while standing in a forest, suddenly understands the proof for Fermat’s Theoram, I had to draw the line.

    While the characters are interesting and have depth, the translation makes the prose come across as low grade fan fiction.

      The books are sensational, since all fiction descriptions are happening in present world.They do seem the gen of other famous novels which, in spite of also being bet sellers, have absolutely impossible stories in such little time…
