The second in the “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” series picks up a year or so after the end of the Wennerstrom affair with Lisbeth Salander’s return to Stockholm. Mikael Blomqvist is about to publish Millenium’s next expose, on the sex trade and trafficking.
Three murders later, and the Swedish police have Lisbeth firmly in their sights. As the plot twists and turns, we encounter motor cycle gangs, corrupt civil servants and the Scandinavian mafia before all is revealed, including “All the evil” that set the direction of young Lisbeth Salander’s life.
The English translation of the third and final installment – The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest – is due for publication in October this year, so either wait a while before reading volumes 1 and 2, or be prepared to be patient….
