The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson

The Girl Who Played With Fire finds journalist Carl Mikael Blomkvist investigating a story of sex trafficking between Eastern Europe and Sweden involving high-level members of Swedish society. When two of his reporters are murdered, all clues point to Lisbeth Salander, the genius hacker with a troubled past who assisted him in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Blomkvist is about the only person to be convinced of her innocence and Lisbeth must confront her past to clear her own name. Stieg Larsson's novel has received mostly positive reviews with the London Times saying, "Conscious of the way crime and other networks transcend national boundaries, it's a very modern novel. What makes it outstanding is the author's ability to handle dozens of characters and parallel narratives without ever losing tension. Larsson was as vexed by misogyny as any author I've come across, but he was also a fantastic storyteller. This novel will leave readers on the edge of their seats."
