I bought this audiobook because I like to read and listen at the same time. It was an unpleasant surprise when I realized the audiobook is a shortened version of the actual book, so I find it useless. Too bad.

I live in France where everyone seems to be reading Stieg Larsson's Trilogy on the metro, so I jumped at the chance of listening to this book (the first in the series) in English - and I can now understand why everyone is so excited about this work!
The two 'heros'of the story, journalist Mickael Blomkvist and very quirky private investigator Lisbeth Salander are brought together to solve a murder where the body has never been found. In order to do so, they delve into the closed world of a remote Swedish island, where the majority of the inhabitants are members of the privileged industrialit Vanger family...
The author has managed to give the characters depth with few brushstrokes, build suspense and convey the atmosphere of a remote nordic village. This is very largely brought to life by Martin Wenner's excellent reading.
As an avid listener/reader of crime novels, it is a pleasure to hear one written and set in Sweden. It is not often that Scandinavian crime authors get translated into English - a great shame if 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' is anything to go by. When can we expect Stieg Larsson's next two books in the series on Audible? Please make it VERY SOON.

I just loved every single minute of the listen.It was one of the best audiobooks ever.The pace was just right and the characters were fasinating.
I have listened to 100s of audiobooks and this is in my top 3,and maybe my number one.I will not talk about the plot as you will have to listen so you to, can enjoy the brilliant story.
I want to know if this is a trilogy,where are the other 2 books as I was very keen to hear them and when I looked they were nowhere to be seen!!Please audible bring them on.

enjoyed the hard cover book, the movie now the audible reading. great read now ready fir the next book
Narrators voices for the characters are so much alike that often it's hard to follow which character is talking. His slight accent is also a little difficult to understand occasionally for certain words. This led to a not so enjoyable experience with having to backtrack the audiobook more than 10 times in the first chapter alone.
