Millennium publisher Mikael Blomkvist has launched an explosive investigation into the sex-trafficking industry in Sweden and its international links.
When two journalists are found dead in a Stockholm apartment, police are baffled by what appears to be a professional killing.
Ex-security analyst and former child delinquent Lisbeth Salander is wanted for murder, but the trail has gone cold. The only way Salander can be reached is by computer. But she for her part can break into almost any network she chooses.

I loved The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and was anxious to get the second book of the trilogy, so when I saw it was available I inmediately downloaded, the only dissapointment that it is the abridge version, hope the unabridge it's avalaible soon.
After listening to the first book in the series (The girl with the dragon tattoo) which I enjoyed, I went ahead and listened to this one. Like I said in the title maybe the book itself is just as good as the first one, but the abridged version is very bad. It mostly feels like reading a book for children (in terms of details, and complexity).
I would not recommend this, and I won't buy the last one in the series as it is only currently available abridged.
One last note about the narration, if you listened to the first book, it will take you quite some time to get used to the narrator, it's not that it's bad, it's just very different.
The second in the Millenium series, by late Stieg Larsson. This book maintains the momentum of the first one (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). A story with pace, action and surprises, it is well worth a listen. At time it stretches credulity somewhat, but then, what good thriller does not? Somewhat surprising, different narrators are used for the two books. Both are good, but this does break the continuity unnecessarily.
i live the characters and the story is flowing and catching.i would like to hear thd unabriged version because it wasa bit too fast for me...
yes- if they have an unabridged version... maybe I would like to hear more details of this story. Mr. Larsson was a gifted writer
as with all his books.. its just develops so well that it keeps you glued
He has a great voice that blends well to the story.
The fast moving events and excitement of the story line keeps you riveted
Lisbeth Salander because she overcame injustice and had her own strict set of rules
I will listen to it again!
I started to read Stieg Larsson's Dragon Tatto's girl trilogy a few months ago. I bought the books and everything, but due the lack of time I stopped reading; I found a free time on my way to the gym and on the treadmill, so I thought, "Why not listen to it?".
After I bought the audio book, and had my first treadmill session with Martin Wenner I knew I had made the right choice. The overall experience is amazing, specially if you like Larsson's style and you already fell in love with the characters from the first book.
One thing only. Since English is not my native language sometimes I lose track of the story, even though I don't when reading the book. When I read the book later, I find that some really small details are skipped from the actual paper book. I don't think this matters (as the story makes sense) but for instance, you will be missing a really intense introduction described in the paper book, which helps to create the mood even before you get to read the first chapter.
