Description

Part blistering espionage thriller, part riveting police procedural, and part piercing exposé on social injustice, The Girl Who Played with Fire 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.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 08, 2009 – Fans of intelligent page-turners will be more than satisfied by Larsson's second thriller, even though it falls short of the high standard set by its predecessor, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which introduced crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist and punk hacker savant Lisbeth Salander. A few weeks before Dag Svensson, a freelance journalist, plans to publish a story that exposes important people involved in Sweden's sex trafficking business based on research conducted by his girlfriend, Mia Johansson, a criminologist and gender studies scholar, the couple are shot to death in their Stockholm apartment. Salander, who has a history of violent tendencies, becomes the prime suspect after the police find her fingerprints on the murder weapon. While Blomkvist strives to clear Salander of the crime, some far-fetched twists help ensure her survival. Powerful prose and intriguing lead characters will carry most readers along.

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.

Great book! Lousy proofreading!

This book is awesome! Having said that, whoever typed this up for iBooks needs to proofread it again! There is nothing more annoying than reading a book and stumbling over typos. At least 5 in the first 70 pages!! Come on man.
