The Girl Who Played with Fire

The Girl Who Played with Fire - Stieg Larsson I enjoyed this sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. This time the story more closely follows Lisbeth Salander as she becomes involved in a new murder investigation. The character development for her was very good as we learn her background story throughout the book.

The overall suspense of the book was good, but not amazing. Many reviewers write that they enjoyed this book more than the first, but for me that was not the case. I felt that the story dragged a bit in places, and there was not any real action until the last 100 pages of the story. I did enjoy the book and found it to be a page turner, but I was expecting more.
