At the end of the year, Amazon released its “best of” lists for three different categories. These categories were bestsellers, “most-wished-for,” and the hottest gift purchases. Compiled from actual data collected by sales trends, quantities, and purchases through the site, these lists were broken down by category. In the categories of books and Kindle books, Stieg Larsson managed to take the top position in both the bestsellers and “most-wished-for” items.

In terms of best selling products through Amazon, two of Stieg Larsson’s novels took the top positions. In terms of physical copies of novels, “The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest” was the best seller. In terms of Kindle books, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” was the most purchased item of the year.

The most wished for books, according to what appeared most often on’s customer’s wish lists, were also Stieg Larsson novels. As with the top sales, “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” was the most wished for hard copy novel. Additionally, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” was the most wished for Kindle book.

Larsson’s novels did not manage to make the top position for the most popular gifted items, which were held by “Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose” by Tony Hsieh for hard copies, while the most gifted Kindle book was “Decision Points” by George W. Bush.

Larsson’s novels, dubbed The Millennium Trilogy, is a series of three novels written for his own pleasure and published shortly after his death. Each novel follows the story of Lisbeth Salander, and they follow an eccentric, intelligent woman in her twenties, capable of eidetic memory but lacking in social skills.

The books have since been turned into films.
