The Girl Who Played with Fire

I finished "The Girl Who Played with Fire" (The 2nd book of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"). It took me awhile to finish because I only had time here and there to finish. But I have to say it once again was intense like the first book. And of course the end was the best part. I started reading the first and the last book of the series "The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" yesterday. I'm excited to see if they are going to make the last two into movies because I would definitely go see them. I have to say I enjoyed the first book more than the second. I guess we will have to see how the third one goes!

Here's a quick overview of "The Girl Who Played with Fire" from: Amazon
Part blistering espionage thriller, part riveting police procedural, and part piercing exposé on social injustice, The Girl Who Played with Fire is a masterful, endlessly satisfying novel. 
Mikael Blomkvist, crusading publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to run a story that will expose an extensive sex trafficking operation. On the eve of its publication, the two reporters responsible for the article are murdered, and the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to his friend, the troubled genius hacker Lisbeth Salander. Blomkvist, convinced of Salander’s innocence, plunges into an investigation. Meanwhile, Salander herself is drawn into a murderous game of cat and mouse, which forces her to face her dark past. 

When I read the last few chapters I was working out on an elliptical machine...if someone saw me they probably thought I was going really fast because the book got really exciting and crazy!
