The Girl Who Played with Fire (Millennium, #2)

The Girl Who Played with Fire (Millennium, #2) - Stieg Larsson I’m not sure what happened. I read about halfway, set the book down and got distracted. Now, over a year later, I picked it up and finished the story. Much like the first book, it’s well-written and has great pacing. Larsson knows how to keep the tempo up as he follows various threads throughout the book.

Be warned though, The Girl Who Played With Fire makes no attempt to be anything other than a middle book in the trilogy. Larsson is clearly egging us on to read the third book. Given how well he writes, I should be ready to continue on. But there is a certain fatigue to the books. Maybe it’s misogynistic violence fatigue or just a lack of real connection to the characters, but I think I’m going to hold off for awhile.
