The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson
My rating: ✰✰✰
Library Book, E-Book, Finished: 5/26/2012

This book also starts out slow with Mikael Blomkvist considering publishing an expose on sex trafficking. We also follow Lisbeth Salander as she travels around the world, she came into money at the end of the last book.

Shortly before the article is ready to go to print, the two people responsible for bringing the story to Blomkvist and doing the research on it are murdered and Salander is implicated.

Blomkvist is convinced Salander is innocent and starts his own investigation, he also continues working on the expose, convinced that this is the reason for the murders.

Everything that happens is tied to Salander’s past, which is revealed to us in cryptic flash backs by Salander and then in a narrative from an old friend. Blomkvist and Salander both track down the guilty party through different means.

What I like about this book is it continues Salander’s story, what happens that is connected to the previous book stays true to what happened. The characters stay true to themselves which gives continuity to the writing.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
