Stieg Larsson's second posthumously published novel is a worthy successor to his debut, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. At the center of this seismic Swedish fiction are crusading editor Mikael Blomkvist and brilliant malcontent hacker Lisbeth Salander. Once again, this seemingly mismatched sleuthing duo are thrown together in a death-defying hunt for a savage killer; in this case, the executioner of two muckraking reporters on the verge of a major exposé. Larsson's resonant prose, intricate plots, and iconoclastic fervency have made him an international bestselling author and cult figure. An arresting literary thriller.

I enjoyed this book although I did find it problematic how Lisbeth changed her appearance in such a dramatic way, I felt it took away from her uniqueness. This wasn't as good as the first but kept me captivated nonetheless!
This is the second of the Millennium trilogy books by Stieg Larsson. I read the first – The girl with the dragon tattoo - last year – this time I downloaded an un abridged audiobook from a library. In this book Lisbeth Salander is has cut off all contact with the books other hero – Mikael Blomqvist....
