Amazon Best of the Month, July 2009: The girl with the dragon tattoo is back. Stieg Larsson's seething heroine, Lisbeth Salander, once again finds herself paired with journalist Mikael Blomkvist on the trail of a sinister criminal enterprise. Only this time, Lisbeth must return to the darkness of her own past (more specifically, an event coldly known as "All the Evil") if she is to stay one step ahead--and alive. The Girl Who Played with Fire is a break-out-in-a-cold-sweat thriller that crackles with stunning twists and dismisses any talk of a sophomore slump. Fans of Larsson's prior work will find even more to love here, and readers who do not find their hearts racing within the first five pages may want to confirm they still have a pulse. Expect healthy doses of murder, betrayal, and deceit, as well as enough espresso drinks to fuel downtown Seattle for months. --Dave Callanan
From Publishers Weekly
Fans of intelligent page-turners will be more than satisfied by Larsson's second thriller, even though it falls short of the high standard set by its predecessor, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which introduced crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist and punk hacker savant Lisbeth Salander. A few weeks before Dag Svensson, a freelance journalist, plans to publish a story that exposes important people involved in Sweden's sex trafficking business based on research conducted by his girlfriend, Mia Johansson, a criminologist and gender studies scholar, the couple are shot to death in their Stockholm apartment. Salander, who has a history of violent tendencies, becomes the prime suspect after the police find her fingerprints on the murder weapon. While Blomkvist strives to clear Salander of the crime, some far-fetched twists help ensure her survival. Powerful prose and intriguing lead characters will carry most readers along. (Aug.)

Perhaps it has been far too long since I've read anything other than quick fun fantasy adventure fiction. By the time I had finished reading this I found that it was a very interesting and entertaining book and I'm glad that I didn't give up on it. So now it's on to the next book in the set.
We hear about Blomkvist and the team at Millenium who must investigate the crime. While the names can be a bit difficult to remember, it is interesting reading. Larsson gives a lot of background information that helps the reader to understand the various roles that the people have in the investigation.
Lisbeth Salander plays a major role in the book; we learn about her idiosyncrasies and learns more about her, as she is suspected of killing the three persons. But it is also interesting to follow the investigation at Millenium, and in particular the role that Mikael Blomkvist plays in the story.
"The Girl Who Played With Fire" is an excellent book by Stieg Larsson, and in my opinion better than the preceding book in the trilogy, "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo". The ending is propably the best part, so if you feel that the book is a bit long, don't give up; you have the best and most exciting part of the book to look forward to.
