About this book
A complex and unique contribution to crime fiction, this is the first in a trilogy which has sold more than a million copies in Sweden. It blends a sinister family saga, a mystery of massive financial fraud, an ambiguous and haunting love story and a violent and bloody thriller. Translated from the Swedish by Steve Murray.
Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared off the secluded island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger family. There was no corpse, no witnesses, no evidence. But her uncle, Henrik, is convinced that she was murdered by someone in her own family - the deeply dysfunctional Vanger clan.
