The Millennium Trilogy
The Girl Who Played with Fire is a cerebral, refreshing thriller that is hard to put down. Not only does the plot remain consistently unpredictable, but it closely examines present day human rights violations as well as the intertwining relationship between the media, the police force, and organized crime. The best part of all is the continued development of the trilogy's heroine, Lisbeth Salander. This is not your typical kitschy protagonist. Lisbeth is a walking paradox of compassion and stoicism, routine and chaos, defenselessness and self reliance. Within a few pages of reading the ending, I almost don't want to finish it. Nothing on my hold list looks as fast-paced as this and the third is still pending U.S. release. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good mystery to read? Please share your ideas with us!
