I have to say, I enjoyed the second installment of the series much better than the first. It was equally as exciting but I found it more palatable. There was still plenty of violence but I found it less disturbing.
Lisbeth Salander emerges as a sympathetic character. She still lacks likability but you can at least understand how she came to be the way she is. You learn about her past and how the "system" has failed her. It is not hard to relate to her mistrust of authority and society at large.
I do not want to say too much more because I would be in danger of spoiling the story but after having read The Girl Who Played With Fire, I am anxious to read the final book of the series. Salander is such a damaged individual. I wonder if there is any possibility of a happy ending for her...?
