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
CHI edition of Man som hatar kvinnor [The girl with the dragon tattoo]. #1 on NYTimes Books 9/08. First of a trilogy by late Swedish journalist Steig Larsson. A young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden disappeared and her uncle is determined to find out what happened.
