Millennium Trilogy

Four years ago, an unknown Swedish journalist delivered three manuscripts to his publishers in Stockholm. These supremely exciting, page-turning thrillers featuring crusading liberal journalist Mikael Blomkvist and disturbing punk heroine Lisbeth Salander came to be known as the Millennium Trilogy.

The Millennium Trilogy, written by journalist Stieg Larsson has sold millions of copies around the world. However its author did not live to see the success. Larsson died just months before the publication of the first volume.

That first novel, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, "combines murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue into one satisfyingly complex and entertainingly atmospheric novel."

First published in Sweden, it was translated into English in early 2008. Book two in the trilogy is The Girl Who Played With Fire, and book three is The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest.
