really liked it
Read from April 26 to 30, 2011

I liked this one better than the first one in the series. I was more deeply invested in Lisbeth's survival and ultimate triumph. There were a few surprises that elevated the level of suspense and anxiety feel as all of the action built to a fevered pitch. From page one there was an apprehension that could not initially be explained until some of the secrets unfolded. And as the mystery begins to unfold it seems to get even more complicated and harder to solve.

What a creative mind and what a shame that he did not live to complete the fifth book! I read the first of the Millenium series in January of 2010 and although I enjoyed it was not compelled to continue with the second book until now. I can safely say that it will definitely not be that long until I read the third one because although it is obvious that Lizbeth survives and flourished through to solve yet another mystery, I have to find out how, when, where and what occurred to insure that survival.

Doug Bradshaw I have a thing for Lisbeth. These books aren't perfect but I loved them. I'm happy to hear you liked this one so much. Thanks for the nice review. I still need to watch the
Movie of the third. I think there will be many more female characters patterned after her.

LemonLinda I have not seen any of the movies yet, Doug. I need to do that soon. I assume they are on Netflix.
