by Stieg Larsson
*I purchased this book from a local bookstore.
Summary: When two journalists are murdered and Lisbeth Salander is the prime suspect, Mikael Blomkvist sets out to prove Lisbeth's innocence with the help of her friends.
Review: The second book in Larsson's Milennium series, The Girl Who Played With Fire is a fantastic read. I actually enjoyed this one more than The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo because I had experience with Larsson's prose and story style and was not overwhelmed this time with the various subplots. I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of characters whose names grace the pages and how much we learn about their personalities, quirks, and ulterior motives. Even though I was overwhelmed I could not put this book down. The Girl Who Played with Fire is a big read (600+ pages) but is engrossing and intense. Rating: **** out of 5.
