The Girl who Played with Fire
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.

"This book Is soooooooo good, especially if you love dark thrillers & mystery stories. Has a strong female lead, amazing plot twists & character development is amazing. I need more books like this!!!"
"Awesome 2nd book in series"
"There are times when I wish the pacing of this was a little faster. There seems to be so much here that is just a narration of what the character is doing that isn't driving the story forward. Coffee and sandwiches. Who knew that so much of this story could involve those two things?<br/><br/>Overall, the story is intriguing and the audiobook keeps me wanting more of the story, even suffering through all the slow bits I admit would probably get skimmed over in text. The story is a really good one and I'm almost done with the last book before I will let myself start watching the movies (the Swedish versions, of course)."
