The 2nd book in the Millennium trilogy. Salander has taken over a year to satisfy some wanderlust and travel abroad after stealing a few billion in the last book. While she is gone tho, her Advocate has decided that he has had enough of her interference in his life and wants his life back. Meanwhile, Blomkvist and Millennium are getting ready to print an expose on the extensive sex-trafficking operations in Sweden. Just before things can get published Salander's Advocate, the journalist writing the piece, and his girlfriend who was doing her thesis on sex-trafficking are all murdered and Salander's fingerprints on found on the murder weapon. With her history, Blomkvist is one of the few people who believes her innocent but can he prove it and can she survive long enough for him to do so?
Another fast-paced incredible tale. This is really not a series that I would generally have picked up but I'm so glad I did as it has been an amazing read. Highly recommended.
