Hello everyone and happy new year! 2013 should be a good one! Hope people didn’t party too hard. It’s been a while since I put out a new book review, like always. But my new years resolution is to read more so hopefully I can start putting more out. This book (sadly to admit) took me 10 months to read due to everything that I had going on in my life and I just watched the movie to it as well. 
This review is of The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson. This is the second installment of the Millennium trilogy. I will try not to give out too many spoilers. This series is classified as crime fiction. The story is set in Sweden about a girl named Lisbeth Salander, who has social and psychological issuesand her struggles with her past and present situations. Her ex research friend Mikael Blomkvist from the first novel is still a major role in the book as he has 2 friends and co-workers murdered and another peice to the puzzle comes loose. 
I found this book to be slow in some parts yet very well written. Larsson does a good job at detail and building a complex plot. The story is captivating and will make you want to keep reading, especially towards the end. I’m looking forward to reading the third installment: The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest.
I would rate this book a 4.5 out of 5 and would definitely recommend this book to be read after the reader reads the first one: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Also the Swedish movie of this book is not bad but I still hope they do an American version like they did with the first novel. Daniel Craig makes an amazing Mikael Blomkvist. And he’s all James Bond and stuff. 
I will try and get my next book review up as soon as possible. Thank you for reading. If you have any suggestions, comments, or concerns for me, let me know, or just simply want to talk to me. I will do book requests. You can send me a message to me on here or E-Mail me at: TeamBellisle@yahoo.com
