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.

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.
