THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE
BOOK TWO OF THE MILLENNUIM TRILOGY
The fierce heart of this novel is Lisbeth Salander, the troubled, wise-beyond-her-years, genius hacker who teamed up with crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
This time, Lisbeth is implicated in a murder: Her fingerprints are found on the weapon used to kill two journalists the night before their explosive story about sex trafficking in Sweden was set to be published. Now, while Blomkvist—alone in his belief in her innocence—plunges into his own investigation of the slayings, Lisbeth is drawn into a hunt in which she is the prey, and which compels her to revisit her dark past in an effort to settle with it once and for all.
Stieg Larsson who lived in Sweden, was the editor in chief of the magazine Expo and a leading expert on anti-democratic, right-wing extremist and Nazi organizations. He died in 2004, shortly after delivering the manuscripts for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.
