Crusading publisher Mikael Blomkvist has decided to run an explosive expose of a wide-ranging sex trafficking operation. Just before the piece is published, two people are brutally murdered. The fingerprints on the murder weapon belong to his friend, the troubled hacker genius Lisbeth Salander. Blomkvist, convinced of Salander's innocence, plunges into an investigation. Meanwhile, Lisbeth herself is drawn into a murderous game of cat and mouse, and is forced her to face her dark past.

Review: Lisbeth Salander is on a well-earned holiday and when she gets back, she decides to set herself up with a new apartment and a renewed connection with Miriam Wu. She also checks up on her old employer Dragan Armansky and ex-more-than-a-friend Mikael Blomkvist. Through Blomkvist's computer, she finds out that he is working with someone trying to expose the sex-trafficking - and up pops a familiar name - Zala. Now three people are dead and Lisbeth's the prime suspect...

This is a great book! A powerful, tightly wound, and pulse-pounding adventure. I found it so hard to put this book down and the action is not-stop. Here is where you found out more about Lisbeth than you thought you already knew...I can't recommend this book enough!! The characters are great and this story sticks with you long after closing the book.

The Millennium Trilogy: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (1), The Girl Who Played with Fire (2), The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (3) 


  1. I am reading The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (#3) and so far it's the best one yet. The movies are really good if you haven't seen those yet.

  2. I just finished this book last night & your review is spot on! I loved this book & found it to be a little bit better than the first which i also enjoyed quite a bit! Stieg Larsson put so much into these books - mystery, suspense, humor, awesome characters, intrigue, drama etc. ad they are intellignetly writte. Thanks for a great review! Glad you too enjoyed the book!
