10 Summer Books of 2017 read.
Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder – and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family.
He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet’s disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history.
But the Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.
This is the first of the Millenium Series from Steig Larsson. It has well drawn characters, a good plot and keeps a reasonable pace. I like both the main characters Michael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander even though one or two actions are rather extreme, if deserved, and Looks to be part of the ongoing series story. When first published this book was surrounded by quite a lot of hype, I think it was deserved. I look forward to reading the two other books in the series.
