Mikael Blomkvist è tornato vittorioso alla guida di Millennium, pronto a lanciare un numero speciale su un vasto traffico di prostituzione dai paesi dell'Est. L'inchiesta si preannuncia esplosiva: la denuncia riguarda un intero sistema di violenze e soprusi, e non risparmia poliziotti, giudici e politici, perfino esponenti dei servizi segreti. Ma poco prima di andare in stampa, un triplice omicidio fa sospendere la pubblicazione, mentre si scatena una vera e propria caccia all'uomo: l'attenzione di polizia e media nazionali si concentra su Lisbeth Salander, la giovane hacker, "così impeccabilmente competente e al tempo stesso così socialmente irrecuperabile", ora principale sospettata. Blomkvist, incurante di quanto tutti sembrano credere, dà il via a un'indagine per accertare le responsabilità di Lisbeth, "la donna che odia gli uomini che odiano le donne". È lei la vera protagonista di questo nuovo episodio della Millennium Trilogy, un thriller serrato che all'intrigo diabolico unisce un'acuta descrizione della …

Goes back and forth between sugar fiction mystery thriller and delving into soberingly real issues. This one tipped a little more to the thoughtful side for me. The setting names are so detailed, I enhanced the experience a little by following some of it on maps. All the while wondering how Swedes can ever sleep on the amount of coffee they drink...

This one played a lot like a long episode of CSI (which I don't enjoy). Also, I'm not the kind of person who cares very much about eloquent sentence structure, but Larsson's awkward phrasing makes me chuckle - to the point that it too oft interrupted the flow of reading.

I did like the book, though. Larsson continues to do a great job with the suspense, action, and character development in this second book from the trilogy. Also, on a personal note: it may just be my horrible memory, but similar to my reaction to the first book, I didn't remember most of the details from the film (even though I loved all of the Swedish-language movies from this trilogy). The third book is in the mail!

Wow! This was INCREDIBLE! A phenomenal follow-up to The [b:Girl with the Dragon Tattoo|2429135|The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)|Stieg Larsson|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1275608878s/2429135.jpg|1708725]. I thought there might be some let down, cause the first good was so good, but Played With Fire might be better! Still the police/mystery thriller is not my favorite genre, but Larsson has created stories that just suck you in from the beginning.

One thing that I'm wary of however... The end of Dragon Tattoo clearly leads into Played With Fire. And the end of Played With Fire is almost like a cliffhanger into The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest. Considering that Larsson died while the 4th book was an outline and while he was planning 10 books, I'm afraid there won't be any really ending to the next book.

But that won't stop me from reading it as soon as I get my hands on …
