The Girl Who Played With Fire - Film tie-in edition

Crime / Mystery Thriller and Suspense

LoveReading View on The Girl Who Played With Fire - Film tie-in edition

LISBETH SALANDER - Pierced, tattooed and garbed in extreme punk attire,  computer hacker Salander is the touching, vulnerable but mightily determined heroine of the late Swedish author Stieg Larsson’s acclaimed and best-selling MILLENNIUM series. The final book to be published was THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET’S NEST. Not a heroine cut from the usual detective cloth but a truly memorable one.

 

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

One of the major success stories to recently come out of Sweden.  It’s the second part of the Millennium Trilogy which began with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and it is quite exceptional.  Sadly the author died just after completing the text and never saw it published, let alone be able to bask in its success.  This in hardback was the first ever book in translation to hit the top of the bestseller lists.  It’s dark, complex and engrossing.  A must read.


Comparison: Hakan Nesser, Henning Mankell, Arnaldur Indridason.

The Girl Who Played With Fire - Film tie-in edition Synopsis

 

 

Millennium publisher Mikael Blomkvist has made his reputation exposing corrupt establishment figures. So when a young journalist approaches him with an investigation into sex trafficking, Blomkvist cannot resist waging war on the powerful men behind this lucrative industry. When the journalist and his girlfriend are found murdered in their apartment, Lisbeth Salander's fingerprints are found on the weapon left at the scene. Now hunted by the entire Swedish police force and officially branded a danger to society, she is forced to go undercover. But how can she prove her innocence? With her computer-hacking skills she is anything but the helpless victim.

He died suddenly and unexpectedly in November 2004, soon after delivering the manuscripts for three crime novels to his Swedish publisher. These novels make up the Millennium Trilogy, which has gone on to sell more that 3 million copies in Sweden alone. Tragically, Larsson did not live to see the worldwide phenomenon ...
