Review: The Girl Who Played With Fire By: Stieg Larsson

The Girl Who Played With Fire (Millennium, #2)The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

As the followup to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, the characters Lisbeth, Blomkist, and others continue on a new mystery - one that begins in Lisbeth's past.
A ring of human trafficking is now being investigated by a writer for a book and his partner for her dissertation, and with the stories names appear. Names belonging to judges to police and one name appears to instill fear into everyone, that of Zala.
Enter a world filled with murder, intrigue, and a deeper understanding of such a complex character. Lisbeth has pushed so many people away from her - the same that without her asking, stand up for her.

I enjoyed the book, but I was a little disappointed for a couple reasons. 1. I was expecting something as amazing as the first book 2. It really isn't a stand alone in the trilogy, it is continued into the third.

Now, withstanding those reasons, I did enjoy it and recommend it for a crime thriller, just be prepared to purchase the last on in the series.
