The feel-bad read of the summer: Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson
The Millennium Trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest) are an international publishing sensation. Atmospheric, intelligent, and terrifying, the trilogy has sold over 60 million books worldwide and sparked a new interest in Swedish fiction.
The first book, the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, partners a disgraced journalist with a punk-rock hacker in a search for a missing person. Abuse of power, secret societies, Nazi conspiracies…its all here.
All three of the books have been made into movies in Sweden; the American version (slated for December 2011 and starring Daniel Craig) has been billed as “The Feel Bad Movie of Christmas.” Read more about the Stieg Larsson phenomenon in Library Journal: Stieg Larsson Stats: By the Numbers.
