I don't know if I'm alone in this, but I like my protagonists to be smart enough to at least hold their own against the bad guys. They manage it quite well and that, combined with Lizbeth Salander's indomitable will and Mikael Blomkvist's resourcefulness make it a satisfying read.
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.
Once I committed to just FINISHING the first chapter and then entered the second, the story flew. In the end, I'm glad that I came in late. I was able to enjoy the complete series one after another. It is a gem. I appreciate that it's a thriller that isn't Ameri-centric. I thoroughly enjoyed the smart attitude and surprises throughout. And the translator, Reg Keeland, did an exceptional job.
Loved it, loved it, beginning (after all) to end. The only problem? After enjoying a solid week with Mikael and Lisbeth. I fear suffering Character Withdrawal.
