    I LOVED THIS 2nd book by Larsson. The "Tattoo" Girl (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), is a wonderful character --even better in `this` book! Keeps getting better...... I've already ordered the 3rd book from the United Kingdom. It comes out Oct. 1st. I LOVED THIS 2nd book by Larsso...

    Three people are dead and Lisbeth Salander's finger prints are on the murder weapon. Can Mikael Blomkvist clear her name before the police find her? And what does Lisbeth's situation have to do with an expose of the Swedish sex trade two of the murder victims were working on? I was ...

    I am confident that Stieg Larsson has a reason for this, but Lisbeth Salander is not much of a heroine. Let's list her transgressions from The Girl Who Played With Fire (and these will be deliberately out of context): 1. She forces herself on a 16 year old boy in Granada. 2. She ki...

    There is ample description of our titular heroine in the first third of "The Girl Who Played with Fire." Lisbeth Salander is composing and arranging a new life for herself while still maintaining the baggage left over from her early years (tons of child abuse) and the occurrences of Bo...

    If loving the Millennium books is wrong, baby, I don't want to be right. In scanning through the other reviews, I have to concur with many of the problems mentioned: superfluous detail (specific IKEA furniture is mentioned several times--as if I know what any of it looks like just b...

    Culture imposes on women constant indoctrination of the idea that our vaginas should make us small, weak, and incapable of caring for ourselves or others. "A woman could obviously never be a fire fighter, for example." "We couldn't send a woman to do that military job because what i...

    This is the sequel to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and it was immediately as good as the first but this time I knew this from the very first page. The first one I felt was slightly more clumsy at the beginning and took a while to truly love it. I speak only for myself of course. ...

    In the second of his three volume series (well, at least it was three until Larsson's heirs hired someone to make a fourth from his notes) centered on the remarkable researcher and hacker Lisbeth Salandar and journalist Mikael Blomkvist, Larsson has delivered a totally engrossing page-...

    Unfortunately not as good as Mn som Hatar Kvinnor. He has gone too far, and Lisbeth Salander is no longer a fully credible person; also, the puzzle isn't as satisfying as in the first one. Start geek-rant: as a former mathematician, I was annoyed by his sloppiness concerning Ferma...

    I struggled through this 514-page book. To begin with, all the homo, bi, double-partner, and heterosexual talk was a bit much. Way beyond my comfort level. To be fair, once I got about half-way through the book - after all the characters' sexual preferences were clearly establish...

    Much later. After such insistence on preserving my idea of my father, my memory of our last meeting, this happened a couple of Fridays ago. I opened up some photos taken by my brother and there my father is, dead in his coffin. I must confess to being quite distressed. And I still don'...

    The first book was for the most part plot-driven. The 40-year old mystery took a while to unfold, but was interesting when it did. So was Lisbeth, although she wasn't the main focus. Enter, The Girl Who Played With Fire. The story has now turned character-driven with Lisbeth as the pro...

    He had come. He smelled of aftershave. She hated the smell of him. He...observed her for a long time. She hated his silence. Then he spoke to her. He had a dark, clear voice that stressed, pedantically, each word. She hated his voice. He laid the back of a moist hand on her for...

    Stieg Larsson doesn't really do subtle. If he thinks an issue is important, he will shout it from the rooftops. With a megaphone. But since he is condemning misogyny and violence towards women, I'm ok with that. "Salander was the woman who hated men who hate women." This book, m...

    Larsson's second novel about Lisbeth Salander, or about MIkhail Blomkvist of Millennium Magazine, either as it may be, was a suspenseful gem. A little slow to get started, this one lacked the steady momentum of the first, but the second half more than makes up for the inconsistent ...

    I liked The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, I thought it was clever and well-written and Lisbeth Salander is a unique and intriguing character, but I wasn?t knocked off my feet. I had the two follow up books on my shelf, but I wasn?t in a hurry to get to them, just thinking I would wh...

    Book Review 4 of 5 stars to The Girl Who Played with Fire, the second book in the Millenium thriller series written in 2006 by Stieg Larsson. Although I am very fond of this book, it wasn't quite as good as the first one, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. But it's a very strong fol...

    Very short review due to the glitches on GR. This is the second book in the trilogy. I loved it and I loved the movie. The book bogs down a little but it's all good. Lisbeth is back and doing her own thing. Lisbeth has been away from Mikael for some time. But, they come...

    ?Not him too.? ?Not him too what?? ?Another admirer of Frken Salander.? Why yes, I am too! Lisbeth has earned herself another admirer. Well, not completely but mostly. This was a BR with the Lisbeth Fanatic who promised me a mindfuck but unfortunately I didn?t get...

    4.75/5 stars. This sequel to "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" is brilliant! This is some of the best crime fiction that exists, in my opinion, and Lisbeth Salander remains one of my favourite fictional characters of all time. The plot of this novel is clever and the diverse set of...

    A downright masterpiece. The action sequences, the constant tension continually building up to lead to a tremendous ending. Lisbeth freaking Salander, she may actually be one of the best, and most complex characters I've ever had the pleasure of reading about. Introverted, extremely ge...

    This book was pretty slow getting started, but when it did, it did it with stupendous style. Lisbeth Salander ran the show in this one, which I really loved. I liked Lisbeth in the first book, but in this one, we see more sides to her than ever before. Let me put this plainly, I want t...
