June | 713 comments Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to run a story that will expose an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government.

But he has no idea just how explosive the story will be until, on the eve of publication, the two investigating reporters are murdered. And even more shocking for Blomkvist: the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to Lisbeth Salander—the troubled, wise-beyond-her-years genius hacker who came to his aid in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and who now becomes the focus and fierce heart of The Girl Who Played with Fire.

As Blomkvist, alone in his belief in Salander’s innocence, plunges into an investigation of the slayings, Salander herself 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.

Please feel free to join Isaboe and June as we get through this mammoth sequel to the The Girl With A Dragon Tattoo.


June | 713 comments Started today and finished Part 1. A good re-introduction to Lisabeth and Mikael, it doesn't go over everything and as I read book 1 a few months ago it gave enough details to jog my memory. But I was reminded why I almost gave up o this series. I am definitely not 100% comfortable with the subject matter- definitely out of my comfort zone.

But the suspense is good so far. Wonder what Advocate Nils has found out about Lisabeth's past and who was the guy? And I still am laughing at his punishment by Lisabeth. And it seems he has a lot to learn.

Yay! It's been really good so far! It definitely has a different feel to it than The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo but still has the same charms. It seems to focus more on Salander as well, which is great because she's awesome :)

Yes! Lisbeth is such an enigmatic character. I watched the film after reading book 1 and I'm just imagining her as Rooney Mara now as I'm reading.

Me too! I love Rooney Mara and really thought she embodied Lisbeth's character! Also, I'm completely obsessed with the opening sequence with Karen O's cover of Immigrant Song :)

I have to admit the maths just goes in one ear and out the other! I've never been a maths person and I can't fathom Lisbeth's interest xD

Haha, I felt the same about the furniture! I love descriptive detail in books, but sometimes authors should be a little more selective about what they go in depth on..."


Furniture is not the most appealing topic of this book xD I liked how it showed Lisbeth building a home though.
