Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
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.

About the author

Biography of Larsson, Stieg

Prior to his sudden death of a heart attack in November 2004, Stieg Larsson finished three detective novels in his Millenium series. Before his career as a writer, Stieg Larsson was mostly known for his struggle against racism and right-wing extremism. In the middle of the 1980s he helped start the anti-violence project "Stop the Racism". This was followed by the founding of the Expo foundation in 1995. In 1999 he was appointed the chief editor of Expo, a magazine published by the organization.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2009-11-15)

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.
