Product description

Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to run a story that will expose an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. But he has no idea just how explosive the story will be until, on the eve of publication, the two investigating reporters are murdered. And even more shocking for Blomkvist: the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to Lisbeth Salander--the troubled, wise-beyond-her-years genius hacker who came to his aid in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and who now becomes the focus and fierce heart of The Girl Who Played with Fire. As Blomkvist, alone in his belief in Salander's innocence, plunges into an investigation of the slayings, Salander herself is drawn into a murderous 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. From the Hardcover edition.

A nail-biting tale of murder and cover-ups."--"People ""You might as well give up on the idea of sleep till you've finished the book."--"Dallas Morning News " "Buzzes with ideas [and] fizzes with fury."--"Los Angeles Times ""[A] dynamite thriller."--"Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel " "Lisbeth Salander [is] one of the most startling, engaging heroines in recent memory."--"USA Today ""Brilliant. . . .Grabbed me and kept me reading with eyes wide open."--"Alan Cheuse, San Francisco Chronicle ""I couldn't put down The Girl Who Played with Fire and eagerly await book three. . . . You must find out what happens next."--"Erica Marcus, Newsday ""Lisbeth Salander could be the female Jason Bourne . . . It's an intelligent, fascinating story that draws readers in, and keeps them turning the page." --"Associated Press ""A combustible new thriller . . . Extremely well-written--Larsson's minimalist prose is frosted with Scandinavian cool. . . . Burns with blue-flame intensity. . . . Larsson keeps a tight rein on the bullet-train plot."--"San Antonio Express-News " "A dynamite thriller." "--Variety ""Fantastic . . . Like all the great stories of just avengers that populate literature, this trilogy is secretly comforting, making us think that maybe all is not lost in this imperfect and deceitful world of ours. . . .

Confirms the impression left by Dragon Tattoo."" --Washington Post ""Will likely confirm Larsson's position as the most successful crime novelist in the world."" --Slate " "From the Paperback edition."
