In this graphic novel sequel to the New York Times bestseller THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, Mikael Blomkvist, crusading publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to run a story that will expose an extensive sex trafficking operation. On the eve of its publication, the two reporters responsible for the article are murdered, and the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to his friend, the troubled genius hacker Lisbeth Salander. Blomkvist, convinced of Salander's innocence, plunges into an investigation. Meanwhile, Salander herself is drawn into a murderous game of cat and mouse, which forces her to face her dark past.
“Praise for THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO: "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is the rare comic book adaptation that actually works. If you've read the book and seen the movies, then you might as well go all in and check out Vertigo's take on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It's the story you remember, with a modern comic flare that gives a visual life to these characters."-- Complex Magazine "Denise Mina (Hellblazer, A Sickness in the Family) is right at home here, diving head first into the Swedish crime series without any reservations of losing the reader along the way. Vertigo's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Book 1 is an enjoyable and intelligent crime yarn that is almost minimalist in its presentation."--IGN "It's hard to imagine someone better suited to adapt Stieg Larsson's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo as a graphic novel than Scottish crime author Denise Mina."--Los Angeles Times/Hero Complex”
