"Godly people find life; evil people find death." -- Proverbs 11:19

If you enjoyed Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, you're in for a treat: This is Lisbeth's story, explaining how such a brilliant woman came to be a ward of the state, taken "care of" by a pervert lawyer. What's more, she's on the run . . . first from her disappointment in loving Mikael Blomkvist, and later from the authorities who rely on circumstantial evidence to decide that she's a murderer. With all of Sweden after her, can Lisbeth outwit her foes?

The story is very much a David and Goliath conflict: Tiny Lisbeth is pitted against rich, powerful, and evil enemies who wish her the very worst they can wish. In developing that theme, Stieg Larsson raises fascinating fundamental questions about duality in the reader's mind such as when strength is weakness and weakness is strength, when doing good leads to evil and when doing evil leads to doing good, when friendship is more important than love and love leads to friendship, what the basis for personal morality should be and when public morality is immoral, and how the family bonds can be horrible while friendship bonds can be redeeming. You'll walk away from this book with a more objective view of the next news story you read about a crime and its punishment.

Stieg Larsson makes quite a bit of Lisbeth's extraordinary intellect. When she's running circles around conventional people, you'll feel like you are reading all about Robin Hood again. Those sections provide something of a letdown however for readers when they have to go back to following the conventional people as they bumble around. I found myself impatient for the next dose of Lisbeth several times in the book's middle.

As in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, this book pulls off the respectable front of the rich and powerful to reveal the evil underneath, the sick predators who will stop at nothing to satisfy their every whim. Be ready to be dragged through the mud of gross human depravity. Like a modern-day Joan of Arc, Lisbeth doesn't let the muck stick to her as she slogs through it.

A friend told me that, out of the three Millenium books, this one was the best. And she was right. It was totally gripping from beginning to end.

In this book, we finally get to find out the past life history of Lisbeth Salander. After remaining a mysterious enigma in book one, her life is finally laid out bare in this second book. Nils Bjurman, who attacked Salander in book one, is determined to get his revenge on Salander and he hires a professional to have her kidnapped. Little does he realise what he is getting into. Meanwhile Salander has been travelling on Wennerstrom's stolen billions and she eventually arrives back in Sweden and sets up a new life for herself in a secret Stockholm apartment.

Then two people are murdered, a Millenium journalist and his wife. They had been working on an expose on the illegal sex trade in Sweden which promised to end the careers of some very important people. But Lisbeth Salander is accused of the double murder and soon a massive police hunt is under way for her. Mikael Blomkvist knows she is innocent and sets out to prove it and find the real killer. But the police and media have already decided Salander's guilt. She needs to prove she didnt do it but to do that, she needs to bare her soul and reveal her secrets.

TOTALLY fantastic. My only complaint (and it's a small one) is that Larsson cuts off the story in book two suddenly, forcing you to buy book three (not that I personally need to be forced). It isn't a "standalone" book. He just abruptly stops the story as if to say "want to know what happened next? Then get book three!". This might be a savvy marketing move but it is sure to irritate the hell out of a lot of people.

The story line is great as always, as expected by Stieg Larsson, but I still like the first book more! Its not as thrilling or well written in comparison. But the book is gripping enough for me to go for the third one!
I really hope you enjoy it.

Initial thoughts:

1) It stated the main focus lays on Salander- overall it does, however there are plenty of pages without her.
2) Pacing could be better. Very slow in the beginning (worse than book one), after 300 pages it becomes interesting yet it is an everlasting up and down, finally fast paced towards the end.
3) Too much focus on side characters. I did like the investigation but I couldn't care less for Hedström, Berger, Björck etc.
4) As a fan of Criminal Minds most of the officers in this book really got on my nerves, unreliable and homophobic idiots.
5) I am a bit disappointed with the bad guys because the focus only lay on them physically, but not psychologically which would have been really nice.
6) I really liked Salander's character and loved that this book deals a lot with her character, the reason why she acts the way she does. However... her being the daughter of one of the most dangerous villains - overdone.
7) Breath-taking end! I immediately bought the last book!

Bin zwar noch nicht ganz durch, finde aber, dass das Buch am Anfang etwas schwächer beginnt, als der erste Teil der Millenium-Trilogie. Jedoch immer noch ein ganz tolles, empfehlenswertes Buch von Stieg Larsson.
Eine Empfehlung für jeden, der auf packende Krimis steht und auch vor Wirtschaftsverbrechen nicht zurückschreckt. ;)

Ich habe diese englische Variante des Buches verschenkt, selber das Buch in deutsch gelesen.

Ich kann jedem diese Reihe nur empfehlen, es ist spannend, packend und man kann einfach nicht aufhören zu lesen, sobald ein Teil zu Ende ist will man sofort im nächsten weiterlesen.

Also Achtung - Suchtgefahr ;)

Die Geschichte um Hackerin Lisbeth Salander und Journalist Mikael Blomkvist geht hier weiter, wo sie quasi im ersten Buch aufgehört hat und wir lernen von einer großen Verschwörung welche mit Lisbeth und ihrer Vergangenheit zu tun hat.

Mich hat die Geschichte durchgehend begeistert und kann sie nur weiter empfehlen. :)

While the first book served to introduce the characters of Blomquist and especially Salamder, this second book explores her life past and present. What a jaw-dropping ride! Loved it from the beginning to the last word, even this second time I'm reading the trilogy. Must start reading the last book immediately!

Lisbeth Salander entwickelt fast einen sozialen Zug, zumindest ihrem ehemaligen guardian palmgren gegenüber. Die Figur des blonden Riesen ist etwas unglücklich geworden. Ansonsten ein jedenfalls lesenswertes Buch
