The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson

“The Girl Who Played With Fire” – a review by Robert Bovington
– review

There ought be a health warning with this book – I found it so enjoyable, I couldn’t put it down and I therefore sat reading all day instead of going for a walk. 

I really enjoyed “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and couldn’t wait to start reading the sequel. In my opinion, this second book of the “Millennium Trilogy” is even better.

We get to know more of the enigmatic Lisbeth Salander who is wanted by the police in connection with some brutal murders. Of course, our heroine (if we can call someone that has been labelled a raving, sociopathic, murdering, satanist, lesbian a heroine) is eventually found to be innocent of the crimes. More than that, we get to understand more of why Lisbeth is the way she is. 

There are other interesting characters, both good and evil including the other main character from the first book, journalist Mikael Blomkvist. 

This book is full of excitement and twists and turns and I can’t wait to read the third book in the trilogy. What a shame that the author Stieg Larsson died before writing further books. I’d love to read more about Lisbeth Salander! hope you enjoyed this review.

You may prefer to buy the complete trilogy… 

 p.s. I would also recommend the DVD….
