If you haven’t read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo yet, you’ll have to wait for a copy as everyone wants to read it. However, there are not nearly as many requests for The Girl Who Played with Fire, the second book in the series. If you’ve been wondering if it’s as good as the first, reviews are mixed. However, I found it to be quite entertaining, and enjoyed the insight into the Lisbeth Salander character. My only regret is that the author has passed away and there will be no more books from him. In this one, a journalist is about to expose Sweden's sex trafficking business when he and his girlfriend are suddenly murdered. Due to circumstantial evidence, Lisbeth is a prime suspect and she goes into hiding. Her friend, Blomkvist,strives to clear her. The characters, as before, are quite interesting as is the look at Swedish society.
