The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It was even better than the first book. Now that the reader is familiar with the character, the story was able to delve into Salander's background and reveal why she is the way she is. It also tell's us more about Erica Berger's life as well as Blomqvist, with the human-trafficking murder plot serving as a driving backdrop. It revisits many of the characters from the first volume and throws in a few twists. It's another hefty volume, but compelling enough that the reader is left longing to read the concluding part.
I had seen the Swedish movie adaptation, but this felt completely different. It felt as if I didn't know what was going to happen further down the line and was still pleasantly surprised along the way.
