Book #11 of 2010


The electrifying follow-up to the phenomenal best seller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo ("An intelligent, ingeniously plotted, utterly engrossing thriller" –The Washington Post), and this time it is Lisbeth Salander, the troubled, wise-beyond-her-years genius hacker, who is the focus and fierce heart of the story.

Mikael Blomkvist—crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium—has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government.

On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered. But perhaps more shocking for Blomkvist: the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to Lisbeth Salander.

Now, as Blomkvist—alone in his belief in her innocence—plunges into his own investigation of the slayings, Salander is drawn into a murderous hunt in which she is the prey, and which compels her to revisit her dark past in an effort to settle with it once and for all.

(I've updated my book list for 2010.)

I'm not even going to bother reviewing this one-- it was as great as the first one of the series, if not more. This time, though, the subject was more interesting: sex trafficking. Larsson really has a way of keeping the reader hooked, and he can easily juggle so many characters, providing many details while building their personalities and actions.

The only problem I have is with the ending, and not because it's bad, but because I cannot wait for the third and last book now, which will be out in English in May.

P.S. I wouldn't recommend reading this one before reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo first.

Now I'm back to vampire novels. What a shock!
