The Girl Who Played With Fire
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
By Stieg Larsson
About the book: Prior to Stieg Larsson's sudden death of a heart attack in 2004, he finished these three detective novels to create the Millennium-trilogy, which was published posthumously. Altogether, they have sold more than 12 million copies worldwide.
Larsson's popular whodunnit trilogy won the "most frequent mention" award on our informal summer reading Facebook poll. Anita R. bought Dragon Tattoo when a weekly gossip magazine ran a story on who should play the leading role in the upcoming film adaptation. "That elevated it to "must-read" status," she says. "I'm one of those people who has to read the story before watching the movie."
