Having hugely enjoyed the first in the series, despite the hype, I am glad to report that I thought The Girl Who Played With Fire was even better; what at first appears to be a tense but ultimately private and tragic tale of revenge for past abuse turns into a thriller with national and international complications; it's like the best of the Rebus novels, but with more attractive characters and much nastier sex. Very highly recommended; reading the first book first isn't necessary but is desirable.

The Girl Who Played With Fire is about 5,000 times better than The Girl With The Dragoon Tattoo.

I think this has a lot to do with the fact that it is much more focused on Lisbeth and less focused on Fucking Blumquist, who, through all three books, is sort of a useless douchebag.

Wait until you read the next one where the creepy factor is upped by a factor of 10.
