The Girl with the Sturgeon Tattoo: A Parody

Arguably the funniest novel to emerge from Northern Europe since the Black Death.

A reindeer strangler has struck again; the world’s leading authority on Baltic sturgeon has been filleted, and the head of Sweden’s only unpublished thriller writer has been discovered some meters from his body.

Just a typical day in Stockholm’s crime log? Or are the murders the works of a single killer? Chief Inspector Svenjamin Bubbles has a suspect: Lizzy Salamander, Scandinavia’s most heavily tattooed girl-sociopath and hacker extraordinaire.

Mikael Blomberg believes Salamander has been framed. But if Salamander is innocent, who is the 4'10" girl ninja captured on a surveillance camera decapitating the failed novelist? And what has become of the unpublished manuscript that claimed to connect Sweden’s most eco-friendly corporations to the twentieth century’s greatest tyrant?

A shocking story of corruption and perversion that reaches to the highest echelons of the world’s largest producer of inexpensive ready-to-assemble wooden bookcases, THE GIRL WITH THE STURGEON TATTOO delivers a hilarious --- and gripping --- parody of the bestselling novels by Stieg Larsson.
