Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder - and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.Hide synopsis

Have anyone listened to this audiobook? If so, is it any good? Are there other good audiobooks you'd recommend. I like mystery, sci-fi, and suspense books on audio, but prefer to read fiction and other literary stuff where the writing quality can be noticed better. Any suggestions?
