The late Stieg Larsson became a celebrity after releasing his trilogy of Lisbeth Salander, the girl with the dragon tattoo.

In this first book of the trilogy, we are introduced to Salander, a shy, anorexic girl with body piercings and tattoos in care of the Swedish state since she was 13, works for the private investigator Dragan Armansky by doing deep background investigations.

Salander is involved with the financial journalist Carl Mikael Blomkvist who has just been convicted of libeling a financier and is facing a fine and three months in jail.  After Salander does a complete background check on him, Blomkvist meets with semi-retired industrialist Henrik Vanger, who suspects that the disappearance of his great niece Harriet, was something in which one of the members of his family was involved.

Blomkvist and Salander decide to team up and solve this mystery, which will prove to be dangerous to both of them.
