I don't even know where to begin. I so loved "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" that I couldn't wait for the second installment to be published in the US. I ordered a copy from Amazon UK and cracked it open the night that it arrived in the mail. This one definitely moved at a faster pace than the first book and is even better. Here we get the back story of Lisbeth Salander - who she really is and why she behaves as she does. The story is an exciting rollercoaster ride with so many twists and turns. I couldn't tear myself away from the book and finished it in three nights. It's a hefty book, 550 pages plus, but I would happily have read another 500. The final installment can't be published soon enough for me. Very, very highly recommend!

If you don't want to stay up waaaaay past bedtime, then don't pick up this book. I read this one first, bought it at the airport in Seattle, and was entranced the entire plane ride across the country. Stieg Larsson created a character that was original and captivating in Lisbeth. The storyline had many twists and turns, but not too many to make you give up. My only issue, being American, was all the Swedish namea. I had to go back and do some rereading to keep them all straight. It is well worth it though.

Steig Larsson does not disappoint with the second in the series about Lisbeth Salander. The saga that began in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo continues in this book. Much is revealed about Lisbeth's past and her character. Blomkvist is also a major presence in this book. This is another "can't put it down" cliff hanger of a book.

Even better than "The girl with the dragon tattoo". Keeps you reading from cover to cover. I didn't want to put it down. Flows very smoothly from begining to end. Keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Faster moving than the first book. Great story line, the only problem I had was keeping all the names straight - many sound very similar and are unusual to me. Not crazy about all the unnecessary sexual stuff, but if you can read past that it's quite a story.

This book picks up where The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo ends. We discover who is Lisabeth's father and find that she is suspected of three murders. As a result much of her abnormal childhood and youth is exposed to the national press and she is the object of a nationwide manhunt. Even some of those she deems as friends become convinced that she is this cold-blooded killer. Mikael believes, however, that she is innocent and works to discover who is the real killer. Fortunately, Lisabeth's pension for privacy keeps her safe until she encounters her father and the actual killer. I truly enjoyed the read and was so glad that she survived to be featured in another novel.

Wonderful book. The characters take on aa life of their own. Great characterization . The action keeps you turning the pages until early the next morning. Nothing like any other book I have ever read. My only regret is that the author has died so there will be no other books.
