The Girl Who Played with Fire was very similar, but I found was not as suspenseful as the previous book. This chapter picks up after the conclusion of the last book. Lisbeth Salander has taken a break from Sweden, her once lover Blomkvist and researching to travel the world. She has completely made herself into a different person, and almost seems ready to lead a quiet life. However, when a story Blomkvist is writing for Millennium suddenly finds itself at the center of a murder investigation, Salander is thrown back into the mix.
What I really did like about this book is that you get to learn a little more about the mysterious Salander. I felt like the first book really focused on Blomkvist's past, and how he had become who he was today. This book really dives into what has made Lisbeth who she is today. It does leave you on a bit of a cliff hanger, which means I obviously need to read the third book. Too bad I don't have it for my loooong plane ride!
But I am pleased to announce I do have a book to read, and that is A Heartbreaking Work of a Staggering Genius as suggested by my friend Kasey! Let you know all about it when I get back seeing how I think 2 9 hour plane rides will just about do it... :)
