From Publishers' Weekly:

Fans of intelligent page-turners will be more than satisfied by Larsson's second thriller, even though itÅfalls short of the high standard set by its predecessor, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which introduced crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist and punk hacker savant Lisbeth Salander. A few weeks before Dag Svensson, a freelance journalist, plans to publish a story that exposes important people involved in Sweden's sex trafficking business based on research conducted by his girlfriend, Mia Johansson, a criminologist and gender studies scholar, the couple are shot to death in their Stockholm apartment. Salander, who has a history of violent tendencies, becomes the prime suspect after the police find her fingerprints on the murder weapon. While Blomkvist strives to clear Salander of the crime, some far-fetched twists help ensure her survival. Powerful prose and intriguing lead characters will carry most readers along. (Aug.)

From Library Journal:

Larsson's (www.stieglarsson.net) second installment in his posthumously published "Millennium" trilogy follows The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2008), also available from Books on Tape and Random House Audio. (The final installment, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest, will publish in May 2010.) Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist return in a compelling and tense revenge story in which multiple murders precede the publication of a story exposing a nationwide sex-trafficking operation. Audie Award winner Simon Vance's (see Behind the Mike, LJ 10/15/09) nuanced performance is superlative. Highly recommended. [The Knopf hc, published in August, was a New York Times best seller.-Ed.]-Joyce Kessel, Villa Maria Coll., Buffalo (c) Copyright 2010.
