Product Description

Lisbeth Salander is a wanted woman. Two Millennium journalists are murdered and Salander's fingerprints are on the weapon. Her history of unpredictable behaviour makes her the official suspect, but no-one can find her. Salander may be an expert at staying out of sight, but she also has ways of tracking down her most elusive enemies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 6 Jan 2009
By acid_win VINE VOICE
An outstanding and dare I say superior sequel to "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". Having read the first story of the trilogy this summer I was eager to know how the sequel would compare. In the girl with the dragon tattoo, Lisebeth Salander is definitely an enigmatic character and there are subtle hints that there is a lot of back story to her character. Am I glad that this back story has been developed and interwoven into this sequel. Too often we say "I couldn't put a book down" but in this case it is definitely a book you will be glued to.

The story comes to life when Salander is wanted in connection with some murders that have been commited. From this point the story moves on at a frenetic pace with all characters connected to Salander such as Blomkvist the journalist and Armansky her former employer defending her and trying to get to the bottom of the case alongside a national police investigation.

Ultimately this book is about why is Salander the way she is. What drives her and what is she willing to do to get to the truth?

Enjoy and look forward to the third part of the trilogy which should hopefully be translated from Swedish before the end of the year. If you're lucky (not me) and can read Swedish then why not get the third installment asap. Having said that if you're Swedish you've probably already read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant again 12 Sep 2009
By Ms. M. Cheung VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great sequel to "Dragon Tattoo", a definite must-read if you liked the first book.

This time round we finally discover more about Salander, she's slippery as an eel and so much smarter than any other character. It was a joy to have such a brilliant female protagonist, if only other books had strong women characters like her.

Blomkvist is again stubbornly digging away to find the killer, but now he's not so morally upstanding and he's willing to bend a few rules and lie to get what he wants.

The story moves at a fast pace, and it kept me turning the pages even at 2am. The blond hulk was an amusing character, in that he seemed out of this world - the boxing match was great!

Perhaps it's not a good idea to read this book without reading the first book, as there were quite a few references to the previous story and there was only scant information about the characters' relationships with each other.

I'm really looking forward to reading the third book, and it seems such a shame that Larsson only produced the trilogy - I would have loved to read more!

3.0 out of 5 stars More Sex, Some Drugs & a little Rock 'n' Roll 9 April 2011
In this instalment of the Millennium Trilogy, our heroine is accused of a triple homicide and the evidence against her is compelling. However, not everyone is convinced of her guilt and her friend and erstwhile lover attempts to prove her innocence and save her from the horrors of her past. Larsson's second book of the Millennium Trilogy is undoubtedly better than his first. Nonetheless, the hyperbole of many of the reviews still fails to match the reality: this is a good, but certainly not a great novel.

The main problem with The Girl Who Played with Fire is Larsson's lack of attention to detail. It's not that he didn't include the detail that would, ordinarily, make the fiction more believable (Salander's preferred brand of pizza for instance), it's just that so much of what he did include is inconsistent with his characters or is simply wrong. For example, it's incredible that someone with a photographic memory can forget where she lives (p.63); the Sicilian is a defence for black and not an opening for white (p.143); and why would one of the world's finest computer hackers be amazed by how easily the media obtains confidential documents (p.349)? Such criticism might be perceived as petty, particularly in light of Larsson's engaging prose, but the author obviously coveted such accuracy and even attributed it as a character trait to one of his main protagonists! Furthermore, other authors of this genre have produced so much better, one needs only to think of the early works of Patricia Cornwell to understand what Larsson was trying to achieve.

A second (although, minor) complaint about Larsson's work was his proclivity discussing his own preferences and prejudices through his fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Girl Who Played With Fire 20 May 2009
The girl with the dragon tattoo was always going to be a tough act to follow. With captivating story lines and ever thickening plots, readers may think the sequel would disappoint in some way. In fact entirely the opposite has happened. The girl who played with fire, if possible is even better than its predecessor. Our knowledge of the characters deepens and more of their previously clouded background is reviled with astonishing consequences.

Lisbeth Sandler is an enigma in her own right and combined with the efforts of a 'practical pig' (Millennium magazine's publisher) Mikael Blomkvist she manages to get herself into situations way out of her or anyone's control.

The characters in this book are portrayed in a very definite way and all bring something to the storyline. The harsh way Sandler lives her life may sound far removed from the reality of the world today, but in the end this book is about how Sandler carves her own set of morals so fiercely into everything she does that others around her whether they know her or not can't help but be affected.

The girl who played with fire is an exceptional book, and I read it non-stop for two days until it was finished. However, not everyone's tastes are the same when it comes to books, so if you are unsure about the book my advice to you would be, please read it and then make your own mind up.
