The Girl Who Played With Fire

The Girl Who Played With Fire

Lisbeth Salander is a wanted woman. Two Millennium journalists about to expose the truth about sex trafficking in Sweden are murdered, and Salander’s prints are on the weapon. Her history of unpredictable and vengeful behaviour makes her an official danger to society – but no-one can find her.
Mikael Blomkvist, editor-in-chief of Millennium, does not believe the police. Using all his magazine staff and resources to prove Salander’s innocence, Blomkvist also uncovers her terrible past, spent in criminally corrupt institutions. Yet Salander is more avenging angel than helpless victim. She may be an expert at staying out of sight – but she has ways of tracking down her most elusive enemies.

…sent me reeling … I can say quite confidently that the second book is one of the greatest works of fiction, not just crime fiction … by the end of the Girl Who Played With Fire, I found myself practically tearing through the pages as if hidden in the story were something as important as the secret to eternity - Ali Karim, The Rap Sheet.
Rap Sheet
Larsson's writing managed to make her (Salander) intriguing, admirable, even sympathetic ….. an absorbing, exciting and bloody multi-layered chase … the climax is a feast of gore … the urgency of Larsson's prose prevents boredom in reading a book that otherwise would be regarded as over-long … a riveting read - The Times.
