The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is by Stieg Larsson. The first book in The Millennium Trilogy. Disgraced Swedish journalist Mikael Blomkvist is hired by an aging titan of industry to solve the mystery of his favorite relative's disappearance forty years ago. Mikael and a tattooed computer hacker named Lizbeth Salander, who has problems of her own, embark on an investigation that takes them places they never imagined. Their investigation unearths a story of decades of abuse and murder that may well cost them both their lives. This is an excellent murder mystery, but it is filled with profanity, violence, and very mature thematic content. This book is not recommended for readers under eighteen.
