I just wrapped up reading the “The Girl Who Played With Fire” by Steig Larsson. This was the second book in the trilogy. The first one, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, I reviewed a few months ago. I definitely enjoyed the first book a lot, but this second one blew the other one out of the water. As far as the “crime & detectiveness” the first one was a bit better. But the thing I LOVED about this one and what made it so much better than the first, is the character development. The main character, Lisbeth Salander, is this dark closed off young woman who you have these pre-conceived notions about, but as the story unfolds you learn all about her past and the horrific events she’s lived through. And even though she is this dark character who has her own set of rules and morals she lives by, you can’t help but love her. She is heroic, brave, and definitely crazy. Just like the first book, there is some adult language and sexual situations, so proceed with caution.
