The Girl Who Played With Fire.

While enjoying holiday’s in remote island, Lisbeth hacks Mikael Computer read the thesis by Dag Svensson and his girl friend Mia Johansson, there she read the name Zala, this name is mentioned in thesis but no one know who he is and where he lives. Lisbeth throws herself into investigation for finding Zala who is accused for many rapes and murders of the under age girls, because Lisbeth Hates the Men Who Hates Women.

In this book, you will learn lot about the back-ground of the Lisbeth, about her school days, her family background and about her twin sister. Why she hate men Who Hates Women, why she is under Guardianship, Why no one talks what happened while she is of age 13. She call it “All the Evil”.

Before she can discover who is this Zala, before she can meet Mikael, she is accused for three murders and all around the Sweden an extensive search for her has been started, she is on every news paper of the country, every T.V channel. She vanishes, make contact with Mikael via his laptop hard drive.
Where Mikael Tries to prove the Lisbeth’s innocence but Inspector Bublanski of the Stockholm Police force believes that Lisbeth is the murder because they found murder weapon with Lisbeth finger prints.

Will Mikael Proves the innocence of Lisbeth ?
Will Lisbeth finds who is Zala ?
Will Lisbeth and Mikael discover who is real murder and what is motive of murder ?
Will they discover how Lisbeth finger prints found on weapon ?

This book has more twist and turns than first book “The Girl with Dragon Tattoo“, reader who read the first book will enjoy this one but new readers who directly started with this book will find little difficulty to understand what’s going on, though Larsen explains little background old charters from first book.
The girl who played with fire is both mystery and thriller, you can’t put it down once you start reading.

I give it : 5/5.
