The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: Book 1 of the Millennium Trilogy (Mass Market Paperback)
Indie Next ListOctober 2008
Lisbeth Salander -- the girl with the dragon tattoo -- is a truly original character. Salander's computer hacking skills, and her amoral disregard of both laws and individuals, are critical in resolving the case of modern corporate fraud and the disappearance of a young girl 40 years earlier. A European bestseller, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo deserves every bit as much success here. -- Ann Carlson, Harborwalk Books, Georgetown, SC
