Publisher's Summary

Lisbeth Salander is a wanted woman. Two Millennium journalists about to expose the truth about sex trafficking in Sweden are murdered, and Salander's prints are on the weapon. Her history of unpredictable and vengeful behaviour makes her an official danger to society - but no-one can find her.

Mikael Blomkvist, Millennium magazine's legendary star reporter, does not believe the police. Using all his magazine staff and resources to prove Salander's innocence, Blomkvist also uncovers her terrible past, spent in criminally corrupt institutions. Yet Salander is more avenging angel than helpless victim. She may be an expert at staying out of sight - but she has ways of tracking down her most elusive enemies.

A dark but enjoyable world.

Good follow up to the 1st part. Easy to get absorbed into this dark and seedy world. I enjoyed the narrating - it suits the story.

I have now listened to 2 in the series, now onto number 3 and can't wait.
The story is so cleverly written, the characters are so well explained and the whole story leaves you wanting to know more.
Brilliant best series I have listened to.

A sequel that doesn't disappoint

Enjoyed this just as much, if not more than the first of the series. Larsson certainly knows how to construct a story, keeping the reader hooked, and guessing, as he gradually reveals what's what through the narrative via different characters. It was good to get more insight into Salander's history.
