The Girl Who Played With Fire

The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson is the 2nd book in the Millennium Trilogy. In the first book, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, we were introduced to Lisbeth Salander, one of the world's best hackers, who has troubled personality. She helps journalist Mikael Blomkvist to solve a serial murder mystery.

In this book, we learn more about Lisbeth Salander: why she distrusts the authorities so much and why she is declared incompetent and has to be under guardianship, while few people who know her personally think that she is a genius.

Conspiracy theories are always amusing to read, especially if they are well written like this one. Halfway through the book, I finally saw why the book had been titled so - and I liked it.
