The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson Book Summary
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, is a psychological thriller novel by Swedish author and journalist Stieg Larsson (1954–2004), which was published posthumously in 2005 to become an international bestseller. It is the first book of the Millennium series.
In December 2002, Mikael Blomkvist, publisher of the Swedish political magazine Millennium, loses a libel case involving allegations about billionaire industrialist Hans-Erik Wennerström.
Blomkvist is sentenced to three months (deferred) in prison, and ordered to pay hefty damages and costs. Soon afterwards, he is invited to meet Henrik Vanger, the retired CEO of the Vanger Corporation, unaware that Vanger has checked into his personal and professional history; the investigation of Blomkvist’s circumstances has been carried out by Lisbeth Salander, a brilliant but deeply troubled researcher and computer hacker.
Vanger promises to provide Blomkvist with evidence against Wennerström in return for discovering what happened to Vanger’s grandniece, Harriet, who disappeared in 1966 during a family gathering at the Vanger estate on Hedeby Island, when the island was temporarily cut off from the mainland by a traffic accident on the bridge.
Blomkvist moves to the island and begins to research the Vanger family history and Harriet’s disappearance. As he does so, he meets most of the remaining Vanger clan, including Harriet’s brother Martin, current CEO of the company; Isabella, Martin and Harriet’s mother; and Cecilia, a headmistress who was Harriet’s younger aunt and friend.
Meanwhile, Salander’s legal guardian Holger Palmgrem suffers a stroke, and is replaced by Nils Bjurman, who uses his position to extort sexual acts from her and eventually rapes her.
After using a hidden camera to record her assault, Salander takes her revenge, torturing Bjurman and threatening to ruin him unless he gives her full control of her life and finances.
She then uses a tattoo machine to brand him as a rapist. …
Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden’s wealthiest families disappeared over forty years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate. He is aided by the pierced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander. Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption.
An international publishing sensation, Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo combines murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue into one satisfyingly complex and entertainingly atmospheric novel.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson Book Review
The original Swedish title of this book is “Men Who Hate Women.” If you ask me, it suits this story much better than catchier but less relevant “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” because it is in fact about men doing all kinds of horrid things to women. So here is the first warning to you, if you don’t handle violence against women and children well, skip this novel.
It’s hard to give a short synopsis of the book. “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” starts off as an investigation of a 40-year old disappearance of a teenage heiress, but gradually morphs into a tale of serial murder and corporate trickery spanning several continents and later takes in complicated international financial fraud and the buried evil past of a wealthy Swedish industrial family.
I found this book extremely engaging and full of action and came to regret many times that I had an audio version instead of a regular paper book. I also enjoyed immensely the amount details about everything – the publishing business, twisted Swedish family, corporate crime, history and political order of Sweden, etc. I am guessing if you don’t care to read about any of this subjects, this book is not for you, because it is packed with this information.
My only qualm about this book, a small one, was the characterization. The character of Mikael Blomkvist smelled of a male wish fulfillment fantasy, the one where a man is adored by all women, gets laid all the time and always gets lauded for his stellar bedroom skills. Lisbeth Salander also felt a little shaky and I thought Asberger’s decease didn’t quite account for her strange personality. I thought her antisocial behavior was inconsistent.
This however didn’t spoil my reading experience. I am eager to move on to “The Girl Who Played with Fire” and see what Mikael and Lisbeth are up to next.
