Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group | ISBN: 9780307272300 | 2009-07 | PDF | 606 pages | 1.07 Mb
"A suspenseful, remarkably moving novel . . . This is the best Scandinavian novel to be published in the U.S. since Smilla's Sense of Snow . . . Salander is one of those characters who come along only rarely in fiction: a complete original, larger than life yet firmly grounded in realistic detail, utterly independent yet at her core a wounded and frightened child . . . One of the most compelling characters to strut the crime-fiction stage in years."
Stieg Larsson, who lived in Sweden, was the editor in chief of the magazine Expo and a leading expert on antidemocratic, right-wing extremist and Nazi organizations. He died in 2004, shortly after delivering the manuscripts for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.
