We find Mikael Bomkvist back at <i>Millennium</i>, ready to change the world by publishing a story written by a new character about the illegal sex trade in Sweden.Lisbeth Salander is living it up, traveling the world and spending the money she stole from the bad guy in Dragon Tattoo and reading math text books. As soon as she gets back to Sweden though, she gets pegged for 3 murders. Did she do it? Blomkvist believes she's innocent but needs to find the real killer to save her.This book was as fast-paced and exciting as the last. Definitely recommended if you liked Dragon Tattoo.

Well, once I had some inkling of who was who, it grew on me. (It seems every other Swedish surname begins with B). It was an ok thriller, bit long - still not sure why all the fuss, so might look for the first book.
