Author: Stieg Larsson
What a cracking good read, couldn't put it down.

About to start the second of his trilogy - The Girl Who Played with Fire. Both were on sale in WH Smith's at half price.

THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE

Just read this , like the first book this a cracking good read. Looking forward to the last book, The Girl that kicked the Hornet's Nest" when it is published over here. Have you read any by Arnaldur Indridason? I'm reading Silence of the Grave, this seems good, he's also written Tainted Blood which I've read out of sequence. Into Scandinavian novels at the moment. It all started when I read the Wallender books by Henning Mankel.Also tryed books by Yrsa Sigurdardottir and Haken Nesser. I order them all over the internet from the local library so don't have to buy them all. Happy reading. Foxy

Liz - I'm just finishing the first one, and have got the second waiting, both on loan from a friend. I've really enjoyed the book, and find the Swedish slant very interesting.

I remember reading in the press when the Millenium trilogy went to number one that the writer's partner was not going to get a penny of the huge profit because they weren't legally married - everybody was saying what a paradox it was when one of the underlying subjects of these books is the mistreatment, in various guises, of women. I wasn't particularly interested at the time and didn't follow it up, although I find it surprising that in an ultra-progressive country like Sweden the rights of partners in a common law partnership wouldn't be recognized.

Wasn't aware of Stieg Larsson's partner issue Jam, however, it goes to show that unless there is either a civil or marital parnership or a will, then things can go against what was maybe envisaged.
I can promise you that you will enjoy The Girl Who Played With Fire just as much, another total cracker of a read. Can't wait for the last of the trilogy and can't help but be very sad that a great writer has been lost to us. Brilliant plots, totally believable characters and one very strong yet very vulnerable young woman.

I read this and agree it was a cracking good read, however I was mortifyingly embarrassed at some of the intimate hard core descriptions. Whilst I'm definitely no prude I do think this warranted a warning on the cover, and equally thought they added no value to the plot line which is in it self is gripping.
