The Girl Who Played with Fire
The Girl Who Played with Fire | Stieg Larsson
The Girl in the Spiders Web, the new book in the Millennium Series, is available now!Part blistering espionage thriller, part riveting police procedural, and part piercing expos on social injustice, The Girl Who Played with Fire is a masterful, endlessly satisfying novel. Mikael Blomkvist, crusading publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to run a story that will expose an extensive sex trafficking operation. On the eve of its publication, the two reporters responsible for the article are murdered, and the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to his friend, the troubled genius hacker Lisbeth Salander. Blomkvist, convinced of Salanders innocence, plunges into an investigation. Meanwhile, Salander herself is drawn into a murderous game of cat and mouse, which forces her to face her dark past.From the Trade Paperback edition.

I found the mystery here far less compelling than in the first - and, honestly, it feels like the author did too. We didn't have the same sense of investigation either and the payoff was disappointing. Add to that too much unnecessary detail (how many coffees, exact shopping lists, exact routes etc.) About banalities and not enough about the crimes...
Also - why do so very many characters have surnames that begin with B?

I love all the perspectives! Some characters are really nasty and others are on the line of moral. The story is thrilling, although a little long at some points. The fighting was the right amount. I'm still rooting for Lisbeth!

Put a big dent in this while working on my library today. Had to stop to eat and because I have a raging dust allergy headache, also because I ran out of bookshelf space 😢. I lost a bookcase moving (it fell apart), 2 of my small bookcases have been designated for other things (one will have cookbooks on it in the kitchen/dining room), Man Cub needed a shelf in his room, and the other is going in the living room (it may end up with some books).

alisiakae I have a dust mite allergy, and can commiserate! Hope you feel better soon! (edited) 2y

The reason why Lisbeth behaved like she did was unveiled and i felt pity for her. The system could destroy a person, so choose your policymakers wisely.

Another quality read. The way this man tells a story does not leave you wanting for anything. He is a masterclass story teller.

Working on this one, I hated the girl with the dragon tattoo until about halfway through. Hoping this one is interesting throughout. Oh and it‘s missing a piece of the cover bc I got it at the used book store and someone cut their name out of it 📚❄️

"When she came to her senses again she cut off all contact with him. It had not been easy, but she had steeled herself. The last time she saw him she was standing on a platform in the tunnelbana at Gamla Stan and he was sitting in the train on his way downtown. She had stared at him for a whole minute and decided that she did not have a grain of feeling left, because it would have been the same as bleeding to death. Fuck you."

Starting The Girl Who Played With Fire tonight. I first read this trilogy back in 2015, so it's nice to come back & revisit. I do wish List had a re-read option, instead of moving it back & forth between the 'have read' & 'reading' shelves.

Not as good as the first book. And I found the ending a little far fetched but over still a good book. Will definitely continue the series. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Made good progress on this last weekend when I spent ~14 hours in a car driving. Really enjoy the story. Some of the characters really bother me with who they talk about women but I can‘t decide if it‘s the characters I don‘t like or the writing...less than 6 hours left to finish this one but it‘s due back to the library soon so I better get on it.

Okay, so the book had some twists that I wasn‘t expecting and with an ending like that, I‘d be royally P.O.‘ed if I didn‘t have the third book! Also, just found out a 6th book in the series is due to release this year.

Larsson is easily becoming one of my favorite authors. His writing seems to drag on in places because he describes the boring everyday things that Blomkvist and Salander do and with any other series I would hate it. But I love knowing what Salander gets up to in her free time and seeing their development as a whole.

more mystery, but less lisbeth. also, too much of a cliffhanger.

Oh my God this book was great. As with The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, the first 200 pages are a bit of a slog, but my does the pace accelerate from there. Absolutely did not see the twists towards the end coming.

And that completes the 2018 #ReadHarder challenge! It's been very rewarding. Can't wait to start on 2019. (I may have already started on 2019)

My boyfriend and I found a used book sale today. This is our lovely #bookhaul. 😄📚 The only downside is that the second book of the Millennium Trilogy isn‘t a hardcover like the other two I have. It‘s going to bother me, but it was only 75 cents, so I got it anyway. I‘ll just have to replace it at some point. 😂

Audiobooking along with the book. I know I am super late to the game, but love the books. Not sure if I will read the new books after the 3rd. Having a lovely bookish Easter weekend. Watching ASOUE on Netflix and possibly going to Ready Player One tomorrow!

200 pages less would have done it, too. Man, this sure was slow paced.

I‘m finally listening to the sequel after nearly two years! A friend & I once debated about whether or not to marathon read entire series back-to-back. To me, it depends on the series. I don‘t mind reading light-hearted or children‘s series back-to-back. But I like to put some time between serious or weighty books in a series. This series definitely falls into that category!

Almost forgot to include this in my first haul. So syked to have the first 3 books of this series! 🤗

Aleida It's a terrific series. I love lisbeth salander. But the fourth one by the new author was horrid. 5y
TheRiehlDeal @Aleida Awe, really!? That's a shame. Supposedly, there is another book in the series coming out Sept. 12th. It's called The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye. And... it's by the same author. Hopefully it's as good as the last one. 5y
