Publisher's Summary

Lisbeth Salander is a wanted woman. Two Millennium journalists are murdered and Salander's fingerprints are on the weapon. Her history of unpredictable behaviour makes her the official suspect, but no-one can find her. Salander may be an expert at staying out of sight, but she also has ways of tracking down her most elusive enemies.

    "Buy Abridged Version"

    Buy the abridged version as this is a bit too detailed for an audio book. First time I have said to buy Abridged version, as I travel a lot so usually for me the longer a book the better. However an Abridged version of this book would probably have had me it a 5 star.

    "Amazing"

    I think I enjoyed this title more cause I was listenting to it as opposed to reading it myself with all those difficult names.
    The narrator Reichlin is so good with the different accents and voices that it just makes the book that much more interesting.
    It's a shame that we won't be getting any more titles from Larsson after this trilogy.
    He is one author who keeps you guessing till the end. And when you get there it's explosive and nothing near what you would have imagined.
    You can't help care for his characters like Lisbeth Salander and Blomvkist.

    "Good thriller"

    Almost as good as the first in the series--though what's with all the product placement!? A bit odd particularly given Larsson's political views. Still, it was an exciting listen and Saul Reichlin was once again an excellent reader. I look forward to the third in the series.

    "Totally addictive characters and plot"

    If you are considering this then you must have already read/heard Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. You will not be disappointed. The characters are just as strong, believable and addictive. The plots are just as well developed and even more complex. I couldn't leave it alone.

    "AWESOME!"

    As with all of this series, this book was, as my review title suggests, AWESOME!

    The story was read in true form and the narrator was excellent.

    WELL RECOMMENDED!

    "Couldn't turn it off it was so compelling"

    Well worth the money, well worth the time! A brilliant story that has one hooked in a chapter. It's an intelligent story without needing complex twists but good reasonable conclusions that surpass Hollywood notions of story telling. Just get it, get it quick and get it now - you won't be disappointed!

    "Gripping thriller!"

    After listening to the first instalment of the trilogy I was hooked! Steig Larson's characters are full rounded and have a depth to them like no other! The narrators voice draws you further into the storyline. You wouldn't mess with Lisbeth Salander! This audiobook had me on the end of my seat. A truly brilliant author, I am just going to start listening to the final book - well worth a listen especially at ?3.99 as a member. Excellent to listen to on a long journey- however its not recommended to listen in the dark at night, especially if like me you are a bit of a scare-de-cat!!

    Another excellent book by Larson, a little difficult to keep track of all the different people and places but you get there in the end. An excellent sequel.

    "well worth it - needs to read as a trilogy"

    excellent listening and great story - perfect for letting the motorway miles slip past. Needs to be listened too as a trilogy for full effect - dragon tattoo is the best book of the three in my opinion

    "Three Boopks That Should Be One!"

    I am writing the same review for the entire trilogy for in my mind they are one story and I listened to them from beginning to end which means that now I actually have difficulty in remembering what bits occurred in what novel but then maybe that is not a criticism as after all I see the trilogy as one book and the story does not really end till the end of the third book. (Books two and Three are admittedly more closely linked to each other than the first one).

    Excellent story and intricately interwoven plots. Lots of surprises and many predicable things occur, but then that makes the story all the more believable. Its not often that a story comes based on Swedish culture and as such it took a little getting used to as they obviously have a different outlook on social care than what we might be used to in this country.

    My main gripe, if there is one is the detail that the author goes into in describing things of even a slightly technical nature. Do we really need to know the model number of each piece of equipment used by the main characters? It is a thin line between educating your readers in things they may not be full au fait with and treating them like idiots not knowing a thing about the technology described.

    On the whole great work off now to watch the films, will I be disappointed?
