The Girl Who Played With Fire

I loved Lisbeth Salander in” The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” and am thrilled that she takes center stage in this sequel. She has been traveling the world, so she is a little savvier, but just as intriguing, complex and irresistible. She is truly a damaged soul, which is part of her charm. Her strong moral character is juxtaposed by her own set of rules concerning what is right or wrong. Layering this on top of her spunky dare devil attitude makes for one fascinating heroine, she steals the show. As with the first book the plot is fast paced, well researched and tight, a page turner with twists and surprises that will leave you wanting more. Compared to “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” there is not quite as much mystery and although satisfying the ending does not pack as much punch, but it’s equally as riveting. In addition to complex unique characters, Stieg Larsson also gives us a fantastic thriller full of psychological suspense and insight into Swedish social and political culture. I am sure I am not alone when I say I look forward to the final book in this series and am sorry there will be no more.Back.
