    DescriptionMikael 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."

    Review quote
    ""The Girl Who Played with Fire "will likely confirm Larsson's position as the most successful crime novelist in the world." -"Slate ""Larsson has bottled lightning . . . Formally at least, "The Girl Who Played with Fire "is a muscle car. But a European engine purrs beneath its hood . . . It""buzzes with ideas [and] fizzes with fury." -"Los Angeles Times " "A dynamite thriller." -Liz Smith, "Variety" "These books grabbed me and kept me reading with eyes wide open with the same force as the best of the series on the TV monitor . . . Move over, Tony Soprano . . . Blomkvist is a wonderfully appealing character. And the girl of the title is one of the most fascinating characters in modern genre fiction." -Alan Cheuse, "San Francisco Chronicle " "A nail-biting tale of murder and cover-ups in which the victims are tantalizingly hard to distinguish from the villains. . . Believe the hype . . . It's gripping stuff." -"People ""Another gripping, stay-up-all-night read." -"Entertainment Weekly ""Lisbeth Salander [is] one of the most startling, engaging heroines in recent memory . . . Some of the books' appeal comes from the Swedish setting, but most of it is a result of the author writing from the heart, not from a formula. Larsson clearly loved his brave misfit Lisbeth. And so will you." -"USA Today " ""The Girl Who Played with Fire "confirms the impression left by "Dragon Tattoo. "Here is a writer with two skills useful in entertaining readers royally: creating characters who are complex, believable, and appealing even when they act against their own best interest; and parceling out information in a consistently enthralling way." -"Washington Post ""Lisbeth Salander was one of the most original and memorable heroines to surface in a recent thriller: picture Angelina Jolie's Lara Croft endowed with Mr. Spock's intense braininess and Scarlett O'Hara's spunky instinct for survival . . . Now Salanderh
