It's hard to follow up a series written by another author, but this was a decent interpretation of the characters. You've got to be a bit of a nerd (which I am!) to understand some of the computer terminology and hacker logic which underpins a lot of the narrative.

In this instalment, Lisbeth Salander becomes involved when a data security operative is targeted by a hacker group. Personal connections are revealed as the story progresses, and Lisbeth ends up trying to protect an Autistic child - getting accused of kidnapping in the process. Bullets are fired, keyboards are typed on furiously, and a cat and mouse game ensues.

It feels like a less complicated narrative when compared to the Stieg Larsson penned original trilogy, but you have to take into account a new person having to interpret the thought process of another, without them being present to guide you. Not as heart-pumpingly thrilling as the originals, but an interesting chase.
