This the second book of the triligy of books by Larson Stieg. I have read all the three books which are a joy to read The story centre round a girl lisbeth Salander. The problem is that you need to read all the three books . book no 1 The girl with the dragon tattoo.is I feel the best of the three, but all the novels have there part to play. No1 has a reasonable ending.Its only when you read No2 that thing realy come to light and the story realy changes direction The problem is so many new faces appear and it is difficult to keep ahead of the plot. Part two ends leaving the reader high and dry after 762 pages you just have to buy part 3. I did order part three I felt it to be a bit of a gamble But iwas wrong it carried on just were no2 finished. I must stop here Larson Stieg is no longer with us Henever lived long enough to realise how good the triligy was. The sad thing is the story ends here. A warning.the DVDs of this triligy are avalailable .Th girl with the dragon Tattoo is the english version. Without first resding the book it would have been difficult to follow the story. I then watched the swiss version of The girl who played with fire This again leaves a lot to be disired If you have not read the books then it would be difficult to follow.to condense the book of this lenth into less than two hours on film is not realy satisfactory. I found the DVD a poor substitute for the book. The story of Lisbeth Salander would make a great serial on TV. The death of Larson Stieg,at the early age of 50years is a sad loss. .RIP.
