This is the second installment in the trilogy starring the inimitable heroine Lisbeth Salander. In exile after her last exploit that left her a millionaire supporting herself despite a court ruling of incompetence, she catches up with old acquaintances and enemies via internet hacking software that she designed herself, only to find that her ex-lover Mikael Blomkvist is involved in something that hits a little too close to home for comfort. In fact, she discovers a way to settle a vendetta that has been brewing for decades, in a style all her own. With more strength and gumption than her miniscule frame deems possible, along with help from her friends at Millennium magazine and Milton Security, she contends with some of the worst low-life mafia types in a Swedish human trafficking gang, and finally unearths the secrets of her deeply troubled past. With a fair share of violence, and certainly more information about characters’ sex lives than I personally want to know, this novel would probably not be suitable for young people or those with squeamish constitutions; however, if you read the first installment, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, you will not be disappointed.
