The Girl Who Played with Fire (Millennium #2)

   

Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to run a story that will expose an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government.


But he has no idea just how explosive the story will be until, on the eve of publication, the two investigating reporters are murdered. And even more shocking for Blomkvist: the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to Lisbeth Salander—the troubled, wise-beyond-her-years genius hacker who came to his aid in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and who now becomes the focus and fierce heart of The Girl Who Played with Fire.


As Blomkvist, alone in his belief in Salander’s innocence, plunges into an investigation of the slayings, Salander herself is drawn into a murderous hunt in which she is the prey, and which compels her to revisit her dark past in an effort to settle with it once and for all.

 

The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

The girl on the floor was dead. There was no doubt about that. He had buried her himself. Consequently, the creature on the floor was no girl, but a being from the other side of the grave who couldn’t be conquered with human strength or weapons known to man.


The Girl Who Played with Fire is a loud cry of independence made by an ordinary girl pushed to her limits by devastating events. A human life is something brittle, something that a villain can eradicate with only one touch. A plain day could start well and eventually end up in catastrophe; a friend is lost and everything changes. One can never fully know the person they sleep with. What is there to say about the voiceless neighbor who's been watching their every move for months? Nothing, until it's too late.



The human existence embodies the features of an individual in a social, cultural, and personal context. It describes aspects such as the search for purpose, sense of curiosity, the inevitability of isolation, or the fear of death.



F*ck it! I can’t do this sh*t!

I wanted to write a serious review but it seems that such things are not for me. So here are my thoughts.

Characters I wish were members of my street gang.

1. Darth Vader



2. Cookie Monster



3. Santa’s Retarded Elf



4. Scooby Doo



5. The Big Bad Wolf



6. Lisbeth Salander



Yes, my dear Lisbeth and her new boobies. B-t-dub, it seems that she’s officially a zombie now. Oh. My. God. A genius hacking zombie that looks hot in leather. Yum!

Fu*cking amazing book…
