The second book of the Millennium Trilogy—the book is set 2 years after the Wennerström affair and Lisbeth Salander is enjoying the benefits of her “acquisition” of wealth, traveling, purchasing an apartment and changing her appearance. She returns to Stockholm and soon becomes embroiled and framed in the murder of two writers working with Mikael Blomkvist (her former lover) and her guardian Nils Bjurman. The investigation leads Lisbeth to confront her violent childhood and the resulting tragedies. I enjoyed the fast paced action of this novel—though I enjoyed the first book more. The one thing that I didn’t like as well in this novel was the lack of real interaction between Bloomquist and Salander—which was one of my favorite parts of the first novel. A 4 out of 5 stars.

I actually enjoyed this book better than the first book, The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo. This story moves along very well and is hard to put down. I liked Lisbeth much better in this book and you are rooting for her all the way. Now it’s time for me to start the third book of the trilogy. I recommend reading "Fire" even if you weren’t thrilled with the first book. Rating = 4.5 out of 5.

Really interesting from the start. If you've read the first, this book is easy to pick up.

This book moves very fast and I was up late a few nights because I was so into the story I needed to keep reading. I was eager to find out how the book was going to end and now look forward to reading the last book in the series. However I am slightly torn to start it for fear that once that is done, I will not be able to dive into the lives of these characters any more. I will miss them for sure.

Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomqvist are back in this sequel which takes up right where the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo left off. We learn more about Lisbeth’s childhood and how she’s spending the millions she ripped off from Wennerstrom. Unbelievably, this book is even better than its predecessor. Nonstop action, impossible to put down.
