Part blistering espionage thriller, part riveting police procedural, and part piercing exposé on social injustice, The Girl Who Played with Fire is a masterful, endlessly satisfying novel. Mikael Blomkvist, crusading publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to run a story that will expose an extensive sex trafficking operation. On the eve of its publication, the two reporters responsible for the article are murdered, and the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to his friend, the troubled genius hacker Lisbeth Salander. Blomkvist, convinced of Salander’s innocence, plunges into an investigation. Meanwhile, Salander herself is drawn into a murderous game of cat and mouse, which forces her to face her dark past.From the Trade Paperback edition.

Very short review due to the glitches on GR.
This is the second book in the trilogy. I loved it and I loved the movie. The book bogs down a little but it’s all good.
Lisbeth is back and doing her own thing.
Lisbeth has been away from Mikael for some time. But, they come back together when Lisbeth is accused of killing that jerk rapist of hers.
Lisbeth looks into a sex trafficking ring that Mikael is involved in and finds out some things about her past she didn’t want to know.
Her evil arse father is alive and she has a brother and they need to be taken out.
But this almost gets her killed.
Thank God Mikael was able to find her!
This sequel to “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” is brilliant! This is some of the best crime fiction that exists, in my opinion, and Lisbeth Salander remains one of my favourite fictional characters of all time.
The plot of this novel is clever and the diverse set of characters fascinating. The only reason why this novel is not just as good as the first one, is because it contains some passages that at times seemed dwelling and somewhat repetitive. That being said, the conclusion makes up for it and also contains one of my favourite fictional scenes. Read this, also even though you’re not that much into crime fiction, like me 😉
Larsson’s second novel about Lisbeth Salander, or about MIkhail Blomkvist of Millennium Magazine, either as it may be, was a suspenseful gem.
A little slow to get started, this one lacked the steady momentum of the first, but the second half more than makes up for the inconsistent and morose first half. Larrson was immensely talented and it is a great shame that we can look forward to no more novels from him.
As Blomkvist was the center of attention in the first, Salander is definitely the subject here and we get to know her story in great, journalistic depth. Flawed, but very good.
This book was pretty slow getting started, but when it did, it did it with stupendous style. Lisbeth Salander ran the show in this one, which I really loved. I liked Lisbeth in the first book, but in this one, we see more sides to her than ever before. Let me put this plainly, I want to slurp freshly brewed coffee and scoff Billy pan pizza’s with this woman, even if she is a cold and calculated pain in the ass at times.
What I especially liked about this book, was all the weird twists and turns. When I thought I’d definitely got a theory to what was actually going on, the author threw another major spanner in the works, and I was back to square one. You don’t really find peace with the story, until the very end of the book, and at that point, I felt kind of deflated that I’d finished it. At this moment, I need more Lisbeth Salander!
