January 2009 Book of the Month.
The second instalment of the Millennium trilogy brings two extraordinary characters back into our lives. Lisbeth Salander finds herself suspected of murdering two journalists but Mikael Blomkvist knows that although damaged and unpredictable Lisbeth is no murderer. Larsson cleverly knits all the storylines together and gives us a deeper insight into events that have created and shaped the brilliant character of Salander. Totally addictive stuff and luckily we have one more book to come, can’t wait!
Lisbeth Salander is a wanted woman. Two Millennium journalists about to expose the truth about sex trafficking in Sweden are murdered, and Salander's prints are on the weapon. Her history of unpredictable and vengeful behaviour makes her an official danger to society - but no-one can find her. Mikael Blomkvist, Millennium magazine's legendary star reporter, does not believe the police. Using all his magazine staff and resources to prove Salander's innocence, Blomkvist also uncovers her terrible past, spent in criminally corrupt institutions. Yet Salander is more avenging angel than helpless victim. She may be an expert at staying out of sight - but she has ways of tracking down her most elusive enemies.
