The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (Paperback) Price: Rs.363

Forty years have passed, but the memory of Harriet Vanger still continues to haunt Henrik Vanger, Harriet’s uncle and now retired CEO of Vanger Corporations. As a young girl of 16 years, Harriet mysteriously disappeared off the face of an island where the Vanger family held an estate. At the time of the disappearance, the entire island was inhabited by members of the Vanger clan, and it was temporarily cut off from the mainland due to an accident.

Henrik Vanger sincerely believes that he lost his niece to a cold-blooded murderer, and that too at the hands of someone he considers family. Now, after all these years of a relentless search for answers, he seeks help.

Enter Michael Blomkvist - a struggling financial journalist, and Lisbeth Salander - a tattooed, pierced, 24-year-old anorexic and bisexual loner with a photographic memory. She is a private investigator with excellent hacking skills, but equally poor social skills.

As Blomkvist and Salander begin to dissect the cryptic case one step at a time, they realize that they are in for much more than what they initially bargained for. They find themselves on the trail of a serial killer, and are confounded when the only possible suspect to turn up under their radar is none other than Henrik Vanger himself, the only member old enough to have been around when all the murders took place.

As the case gets darker, the investigators find themselves trapped in a family history that reeks of blood and homicide. As they unravel one secret after the other, they almost risk their safety as they proceed.

At the heart of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo lies Larsson’s utter hatred and loathing for all kinds of violence inflicted upon women. As a teenager, he had helplessly witnessed the gang rape of a teenage girl, and this incident significantly influenced his writings. It is perhaps for this very reason that Lisbeth Salander, the female protagonist, has been portrayed as a symbol of female empowerment.

Published in September 16, 2008, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was an instant success in Sweden and other European countries. In 2009, the book went on to win the Galaxy British Book Awards and the Anthony Award for the best debut novel. Stieg Larsson was awarded the ITV3 Crime Thriller Award for International Author of the Year in 2008, after his death. Hollywood created an adaptation of the novel in December 2011.

Directed by David Fincher, it starred Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. Earlier in 2009, the Swedish film company Yellow Bird created film adaptations of the entire Millennium Series.

About the Author
Born in 1954 in Sweden, Stieg Larsson was a Swedish journalist and writer. Best known for his Millennium Series, which was published after his death, he was also a photographer and a member of the Communist Workers League.

The other two books in the Millennium Series by Larsson are- The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.
Stieg Larsson’s writing style is iconoclastic. His writing is downright brutal, raw, and real. From blood, violence, and crime - the essence of crime novels - he deals with issues that are seldom dealt with in crime novels. Sexual abuse, rape, neo-fascism, sex trafficking, and the abuse of individual rights are all dealt with in this series, making the text heavy yet insightful. With powerful female characters and intense themes, Larsson’s writing opens the readers’ eyes to the existing evils of human society and widespread corruption and injustice.

Larsson founded the Swedish Expo Foundation, which worked to eliminate right wing extremism and the white-power culture amongst youth and in schools. He died of a heart attack at the age of 50 in the year 2004.

Nothing like anything you've read before!

Being a self-confessed book worm I can assure you that this series of books by the very talented Stieg Larsson is nothing like any other novel you've ever read. The characters simply explode on your face, the story line is gripping, and its the best combination of intrigue, violence, and romance that I bet you will not find in any other novel.
Its really a tragedy that Larsson died even before his books went into print and before he could see what a worldwide phenomenon they've become!
I strongly recommend the books to those out there who would love to get shocked out of their usual fare of drama and romance novels!....also, given the fact that the books have been adapted into movies in 2 languages already gives you even more reason to read them!!!!!....

Good but Dragging

Nice story but little bit like hindi movie(Dragging). Once you catch the interest you will not stop. Some pages could have been removed. There's not a single loose end and its far better than the movie.

One thing about flipkart, its awesome. The delivery happened in just 2 working days which mind blowing. Great packing and no damage to the product.

Keep it up guys...:)

This is my first review in flipkart and I am happy to write it for the Millenium series. It is literally unputdownable. I started reading this book, after seeing a lady in a packed metro who was reading it with a lot of interest, unaware of her surroundings. I thought of taking a risk and bought this book. I couldn't stay still before completing the 3rd part. Amazing series, which will keep you glued to the pages. Must read....

It Will Haunt You Long After Completing the Novel

After hearing so much about this novel and now that 2 movies have been made on this film, I decided to read this book. The initial 100 pages are really very boring and at one point I felt like throwing the book away.

But once the plot starts developing, then the real excitement begins.I can bet 100 dollars that you would not be able to put the book down from thence onwards. The ending is really superb and you would be awe-stricken in the end because you could not have anticipated such kind of ending. This is thing due to which the novel has gained the desired amount of attention from book lovers.

I haven't read the other 2 novels in the Millennium series but I am really looking forward to it. Once you complete the novel, I am quite sure it will haunt you long after you have completed it. I have now become a huge fan of murder mystery novels

I would have given 5 stars to the noel but giving 4 just because of the boring 100 pages in the beginning.

Interesting plot

I like the characters and the plot. Though I could not get beyond the first few pages quickly and had to start all over again thrice. The third time I had decided that I will read it at any cost. And after I had finished some 60 odd pages (until where I think the novel drags a lot), it suddenly got too interesting and I kept the book down only after I had completed it! All in all a good read, but drags a little in some places.
