From the cover:

A spellbinding blend of murder mystery, family saga, and financial intrigue.

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from the secluded island owend by the Vanger family. No one saw her leave the island, and no body was ever found. Her uncle, Henrik, is convinced she was murdered by a member of her own dysfunctional family. Disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist is hired to investigate.

But when Blomkvist uncovers new evidence, it suddenly becomes too dangerous to proceed alone. Enter Lisbeth Salander, a twenty-four-year-old pierced and tattooed genius hacker with the wisdom of someone twice her age--and a terrifying capacity for ruthlessness to go with it. She's unwilling to take orders, rides a motorbike like a Hells Angel, and handles makeshift weapons with a skill born of rage.

Together the unlikely team unravels a dark and appealing family history. But the Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out how far they're prepared to go to protect themselves.

Started quite slow, and with a lot of references to Swedish politics, of which I know nothing. So a little hard to get into. Put it down for a while and read some other stuff before I could get back into it.

But once I did, it wasn't bad...reading the second in the trilogy now.
