    "Whew!"

    I have to say, when I downloaded this (purely a random call based on the star rating) I listened to the opening scenes and for a few minutes wondered what on earth I had received! But fortunately I listened on. I agree with the other reviewers that it seems a little slow to get going, and at first the detail seems interminable, however with it's twists and turns this soon grabbed myself more than any book I have read/heard for quite some time! I'm now forcing my self to go back and read the first book before finding out what happens next...

    "Better than ever"

    I'd recommend listening to the "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" first, becase the central characters walk fully-drawn into this new drama. It starts very slowly, and as a listener it is initially difficult to keep track of the web of new characters. Then suddenly you're in, living the story as the tension mounts and mounts. It's unbearble and wonderfully done - a great book.

    "slow burner which gathers pace"

    Excellent personal introduction to the writing of Stiegg Larsson. Being a fan of the Rome mysteries, I was accustomed to Saul Reichlins excellent narrative style and I settled easily into the early scene setting hours of the book. I found the the twists and turns of the book and the slow unveiling of the character of Lisbet Salander to be especially powerful. this audio book is highly recommended (especially to all you Rome fans) and looking forward to diving straight into the second book.

    "The Girl Who Played with Fire"

    If you read the ?The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? this is a must. It?s equally as good. If you haven?t it will make you want to. A brilliant read. What made it all the more enjoyable was the narration by Saul Reichlin. A perfect choice.

    "Scariest movie ever!"

    This book scared the bejeezus out of me, but I could not put the book down until I finished it. If you're a fan of the Exorcist or Amityville Horror, then this is the book for you!

    "ok but not great"

    I would like to say that this book was as good as the first but I would be lying. For the life of me I cannot understand why the author had to write mathematical workings time and time again. I understand that the character has certain personality traits that would lead to them becoming obsessed by such arithmetic’s but these traits were established in the first book. All it achieved was to bore me so much I switched off only to realise that the story had continued and I had missed lumps of the story and had to rewind. You couldn’t even use the argument that it enabled the book to stand alone as without the knowledge from the first book they make no sense. If these were removed it would only add to the continuity and flow of the story.

    Once you have got passed the first few chapters the story does pick up. I enjoyed getting to know Lisbet a bit better. There are some interesting swings and roundabouts that lead you in circles eventually taking you into the world of espionage and prostitution. I had difficulty with the unusual names of people and places and this also added to my frustration. The last couple of chapters require you to suspend reality as I’m sure no human body could survive that much.

    The narrator was easy to listen to and I feel was the only reason why I stuck with this book. Saying that I am glad I persevered with the story and did find the second half of the book far better than the first. Would I listen again- probably not but that depends on the third book.

    "Fantastic"

    This 2nd installment was not as good as the first and third installments, but it was still a gripping book and usual the narrator did a brilliant job. I'd search for future books read by this narrator as he does such a brilliant job.
