I am hooked on my books. I love to take my camper up north and spend the weekend sitting out doors with a drink , watching my dogs
i read these books out of order, even though I loved this book and can not waite for book three. I hope that tis is just the start of many great hours. please keep these book alive
I have really enjoyed this trilogy so far and i can't wait to get the final book. I missed having the interaction between Mikael and Lisbeth in this book, but that characters can hold their own and i was not disappointed. We learn so much more about the complex Ms. Salinder in this book and the term six degrees of separation really apply in this series. If you enjoyed the first book i am positive that this one will be enjoyable as well.
Simon Vance is an excellent reader. This book stands on its own, of course, but Vance's reading style is definitely a value-add.
Book 2 (The Girl Who Played with Fire) did not disappoint as the story of Lizbeth Salander unfolds and we find out more about her bizarre past. Many of the original characters and a few intriguing new ones. One of strangest "heroines" I've ever encountered, but like her I do.
What a book, what a character in Lisbeth! If you like the kind of book where you can cheer out loud...
This is it.

don't read this before you read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Both are "can't turn off suspense" I look forward the the next Elizabeth Sallinger adventure.
I loved "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and this was a wonderful 2nd novel. It is hard to believe the writer did not want these published, and wrote them for fun. He has amazing descriptive abilities. This book is much easier to read after the first, since you are familiar with many of the characters. Each Character in his novels is beautifully formed and described. I couldn't put this one down.
This sequel lived up to the first one! Great read! You should definitely read the first one in order to get a good picture of the main protagonists. Lisabeth Salendar is a very different kind of character than most! Excellent audio, too...especially with the Swedish names which I could never pronounce. Actually am reading the third book...a friend ordered it from Amazon.uk as it wasn't available here yet. And I am so glad I listened to the first two to get the pronunciation correct. Oh, and btw, there is absolutely NO WAY you could understand #3 without the first two. In fact, the first half actually rehashes the past too much. But I hear there are 200 pages written of a fourth before Steig died. I'd love even those 200 pages of his book!
This book is a great follow up to "The girl with the Dragon Tattoo". Very well written, very exciting. Its too bad this author died before his time.
