The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson

I can't believe I waited a year to read The Girl Who Played With Fire, the sequel to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. But the story picks up about 2 years after the last so in their world I'm ahead of the game.

We find Mikael Bomkvist back at Millennium, ready to change the world by publishing a story written by a new character about the illegal sex trade in Sweden.

Lisbeth Salander is living it up, traveling the world and spending the money she stole from the bad guy in Dragon Tattoo and reading math text books. As soon as she gets back to Sweden though, she gets pegged for 3 murders. Did she do it? Blomkvist believes she's innocent but needs to find the real killer to save her.

This book was as fast-paced and exciting as the last. Definitely recommended if you liked Dragon Tattoo.

This book fulfills my Crime/Mystery Fiction requirement for the Eclectic Reader Challenge.
