# 72 The Girl Who Played With Fire


The Girl Who Played With Fire


Stieg Larsson



When journalist Mikhael Blomqvist is approached by a couple of friends about publishing a book and series of articles that threaten to to expose a multi-national sex-trafficking operation, he agrees. It isn't long before those same friends are found dead.


Mikhael discovers that a gun has been found near the scene bearing the fingerprints of Lisbeth Salander, the off-beat girl who saved his life and his career during a previous investigation.


Salander has become the prime, and only suspect in the murders, and Mikhael is determined to prove her innocence.


Lisbeth, herself, offers Blomqvist little help, as she runs her own investigation while remaining undercover, and running smack into a deadly threat from her past.


Another extremely satisfying page-turner by Stieg Larsson! I love these books in the Millennium series, and am sorry that I have just one more to go.


I hope the last one reveals what happened to Lisbeth Salander's sister, Camilla. Her story-line is not an integral part of the first two books at all. She barely rates a mention in either one, but I think that's what intrigues me.

El Corazon

236. Unsolved Texas Mysteries.

Unsolved Texas Mysteries
by Wallace O. Chariton, Charlie Eckhardt, and Kevin R. Young

Started: November 18, 2010
Finished: November 23, 2010

Poorly written popular history. Reads like a bad small Texas weekly newspaper history column. I caught a few mistakes in the couple of chapters where I knew something about the subject, so I'm assuming there were lots of other mistakes in the chapters where I wasn't familiar with the material beforehand. 248 pages. Grade: D

Next up: The Horse and his Boy by C.S. Lewis

* Reading from The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

After re-reading this story, I fail to see the reasons why I hated it when I read it for school. This story is filled with action and adventure. I'm floored by Lewis' imagination. I now cannot wait to watch the movie!
