Millennium trilogy 'bestselling books of 2010'

4th January 2011

Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy occupied the top three spots of the bestselling books of last year, new figures from Nielsen BookScan show.

Data given by the book tracking service to the Guardian reveals that The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was the top-selling title of 2010, with 1,156,530 copies flying from book store shelves in the year to December 11th.

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest came in second, racking up 995,845 sales, while The Girl Who Played with Fire moved 957,063 copies to take third place.

Jamie's 30-Minute Meals, the latest cookbook from Jamie Oliver, held fourth place in the list and Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol was in fifth.

Stephenie Meyer won sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth places in the ranking, with Eclipse, Twilight, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner and New Moon, while Guinness World Records 2011 was found to be the tenth bestselling book of 2010.

Last month, Nielsen BookScan announced that Jamie's 30-Minute Meals was the UK's top-selling book of the Christmas period, ahead of A Simples Life: The Life and Times of Aleksandr Orlov, Guinness World Records 2011, Alan Sugar's autobiography What You See is What You Get and One Day by David Nicholls.
