About This Book
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
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
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
Stieg Larsson, who lived in Sweden, was the editor in chief of the
magazine Expo and a leading expert on antidemocratic right-wing
extremist and Nazi organizations. He died in 2004, shortly after
delivering the manuscript for this and two subsequent novels.
"The Girl Who Played with Fire will likely confirm Larsson's
position as the most successful crime novelist in the world."
"Larsson has bottled lightning . . . Formally at least, The Girl Who
Played with Fire is a muscle car. But a European engine purrs beneath
its hood . . . It buzzes with ideas [and] fizzes with fury."
--Los Angeles Times
"A dynamite thriller."
--Liz Smith, Variety
"These books grabbed me and kept me reading with eyes wide open with the
same force as the best of the series on the TV monitor . . . Move over,
Tony Soprano . . . Blomkvist is a wonderfully appealing character. And
the girl of the title is one of the most fascinating characters in
modern genre fiction."
--Alan Cheuse, San Francisco Chronicle
"A nail-biting tale of murder and cover-ups in which the victims are
tantalizingly hard to distinguish from the villains. . . Believe the
hype . . . It's gripping stuff."
"Another gripping, stay-up-all-night read."
"Lisbeth Salander [is] one of the most startling, engaging heroines in
recent memory . . . Some of the books' appeal comes from the Swedish
setting, but most of it is a result of the author writing from the
heart, not from a formula. Larsson clearly loved his brave misfit Lisbeth. And so will you."
"The Girl Who Played with Fire confirms the impression left by Dragon
Tattoo. Here is a writer with two skills useful in entertaining readers
royally: creating characters who are complex, believable, and appealing
even when they act against their own best interest; and parceling out
information in a consistently enthralling way."
