THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO STIEG LARSSON The The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is the first of three novels written by author Stieg Larsson, who passed away before seeing the success that his novels have become. Elderly socialite Henrik Vanger hires Mikael Blomkvist, a financial journalist recently convicted of libel, to write his biography with the hope that he will uncover the mystery of his long time missing niece. Lisbeth Salander is a computer hacker who the State has declared incapable of handling her own affairs. Salander's life intertwines with Blomkvist's to help solve the case. This Swedish murder mystery starts slowly but proves to have a fast-paced plot with detailed and likeable characters. 'this Swedish murder mystery starts slowly but proves to have a fast-paced plot'
