Monday Book Recommendation: Millennium Series by Stieg Larsson

thegirlwiththedragontattoo thegirlwhoplayedwithfire thegirlwhokickedthehornetsnest

A significant fact about this series is how Stieg Larsson is unable to see the success that his trilogy accrued. A fourth installment is being written by David Lagercrantz, The Girl in the Spider’s Web, which is not the unpublished fourth novel by Larsson, but a completely new work using the characters from the first three.

I’ve just started reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and so I have no input on whether this is a worthwhile series to invest in or not. If you’ve read the books, let me know what you thought in the comments below.


As a journalist and editor of the magazine Expo , Larsson was active in documenting and exposing Swedish extreme right and racist organisations. When he died at the age of 50, Larsson left three unpublished thrillers and unfinished manuscripts for more. The first three books ( The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo , The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest ) have since been printed as the Millenium series. These books are all bestsellers in Sweden and in several other countries, including the United States and Canada.

  1. I haven’t read this series, either. Though I’ve heard great things about it.

  2. I’m hesitant to try the 4th book because the first three were near perfection and probably one of the best crime series out there but I will try it in the near future because I miss Lisabeth Salander

    • Well I’ve only heard great things about the series so I guess I’ll be investing in the all three. I’d also be hesitant about the fourth, but maybe David Lagercrantz will do it justice.

  3. Your review of the series was spot on. I have only read the first two books and loved and hated them at the same time. Tough reading for a sweet, innocent old lady. ha ha. But you notice the rawness of the first book did not stop me from reading the second. ha! again.
