Millennium trio - the 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' and follow ons are enthralling tales that make you read all three chunky journals in quick succession. The main character is the strangest anti-hero to be relied on as the main source of empathy for so many pages. She is a violent, damaged genius that if you met her in real life you wouldn't know how to deal with her but in the written word you root for her the whole way. It's not like other stories.

'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' is not just a great spy novel, it is a wonderful character study of complex people living and dying in a world that we had previously associated with the fantastically ridiculous James Bond books and films.

Here's the original New York Times book review from 1974: The Spy Who Spied on Spies
