The Girl Who Played With Fire is the second part of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy.
Unlike the first book I had no problems getting into this one and consumed it in a few days whilst on summer holidays. It was hard not to give away plot teasers to my husband who was waiting for his turn to read the book as I gasped my way through to the thrilling, page-turning dramatic end.
It looks like a movie or two could be on the way…. and Lisbeth now has her own facebook page!
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.
