Publisher Description

Part blistering espionage thriller, part riveting police procedural, and part piercing exposé on social injustice, this second book in the Millennium series 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.

Brilliant author...

Such shame he is gone. Just finished this book. This series just gets better. Starting last one now. Hope the movie does these characters justice.

Interesting story, but poorly written

Perhaps something has been lost in translation; the writing in this novel was laboriously dry, simple, and so direct it could barely maintain the mystery of the plot. The characters, while interesting, were not easy to care about, and the tedious mentioning of specific branded items could have been mistaken for blatant product placement. The story itself, however, almost makes up for the writing. This might be one of those books where it's better to see the movie.

The Girl Who Played With Fire

Once again, Larsson comes through with a great book! Loved it, couldn't put it down and purchased The Girl That Kicked The Hornets Nest as soon as I had finished this one.
