    "Enthralling to the last full-stop"
    Any additional comments?

    Having really enjoyed 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo', I naturally wanted to read the next instalment. Dark and gritty, often graphic, Larsson is completely engrossing yet again as he continues to develop the character of Lisbeth Salander in unexpected ways. She is fundamentally damaged, and yet one of the strongest female protagonists that I have ever read. Without giving anything away, I was literally holding my breath at times during the final chapters, and I kept listening until 3am even though I had work the next day at 7am. Ooops. So, read with caution!!!! The final instalment of the Millennium Trilogy is in my shopping basket as I type this.

    "Another Lisbette Salandar smash hit for Largs on."

    I loved the first book and if it's possible I enjoyed the second more. What a great installment to the trilogy. Packed with character detail and excellently performed by Saul Reichlin.

    Story
    "World class suspense"

    Stieg Larsson continues the facinationg story of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"

    Lisbeth Salander is a brilliant but socially unskilled girl with trust issues and a shady past from psychiatric clinics and some tough time as a teenager, is facing deep secrets from her past. When a few people get killed, she is accused of the murder. Only her life long paranoia keep her evading the authorities.

    A journalist and personal friend, Mikael Blomkvist, is one of few who believe she is innocent and sets out to prove it. This is made hard by the fact, Lisbeth Salander does not want to ever see him again. The police is hunting her, so are a people from her past she crossed and the media is all over the story trying to find every scandal in her past.

    Story
    "Abit of a let down. Maybe give it a miss,"
    What did you like best about The Girl Who Played with Fire? What did you like least?

    The good thing was you learnt a little more about Lisbeth Salander and her relationship with her family and why she was in care but the downside to this is that this was most of the book slow and not much action until the last few chapters. I thought about not completing it as it was so slow.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Stieg Larsson again?

    I really like the detail of the stories and would love to listen to Stieg Larsson again but this book just didn't do it for me.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The scene with the bikers were Lisbeth Salander show them up would have been fun to see in real life. Beaten up by a skinny girl. haha

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. Great book. Accents a little dodgy but overall done well.

    The problem with an audiobook in this case is that I have no idea about areas of Stockholm or Sweden, but I can't look them up, because I have no idea of the spelling. So the book loses a little because of that - there's a lot of geographical references and I can't grasp them.

    "Fantastic Listen"

    I just did not want to stop listening it was as if the book had been written specifically for this narrator. The story is riveting and real edge of the seat stuff with many twists and turns. A writer that really grips your imagination and tells a story that you could well believe to be factual.
