The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson
Bookviews’ Book of the Month for October was The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – a highly popular page turner with a unique set of characters and a wonderfully exciting plot. Well, Stieg Larsson’s sequel, The Girl Who Played With Fire is just as good, if not better than his first attempt.
Lisbeth Salander, the unique, at times bizarre and always fascinating young woman, introduced in his first book, is back and carrying on as she began.
The Wiki article on The Girl Who Played With Fire calls Lisbeth “a punk, avenging angel with boxing skills and a photographic memory.” Despite seeming to be amoral, Lisbeth has a fine-tuned sense of justice and a strict personal moral code upon which she will act (aggressively), if she feels she is right.
