Publisher's Summary

It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden...and about her octogenarian uncle, determined to know the truth about what he believes was her murder. It's about Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently at the wrong end of a libel case, hired to get to the bottom of Harriet's disappearance...and about Lisbeth Salander, a 24-year-old pierced and tattooed genius hacker possessed of the hard-earned wisdom of someone twice her age who assists Blomkvist with the investigation. This unlikely team discovers a vein of nearly unfathomable iniquity running through the Vanger family, astonishing corruption in the highest echelons of Swedish industrialism and an unexpected connection between themselves.Contagiously exciting, it's about society at its most hidden, and about the intimate lives of a brilliantly realized cast of characters, all of them forced to face the darker aspects of their world and of their own lives.Translated by Reg Keeland.

Caution: Very Sexually Graphic

I was surprised that none of the reviewers pointed out that this book contains very graphic depictions of rape and sexual torture. What made it all the more incredible is that we're dragged through these disgusting scenes for no apparent reason. The passages neither further the plot or factor into the overall story in any way. It seems as though they're just tossed in to give the story more of a thriller's "edge". Stay away unless you have a strong stomach for kinky rape etc. After reading this one I look forward to a rating system for books similar to movies and video games.

I forced myself to listen to the end

I had a tough time getting into this story, and was thankful I got the abridged vs. the unabridged. The explicit sex scenes didn't add any value to the story, but rather detracted from it in my opinion. I probably won't be picking up another book by this author.
