Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to run a story that will expose an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. But he has no idea just how explosive the story will be until, on the eve of publication, the two investigating reporters are murdered. And even more shocking for Blomkvist: the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to Lisbeth Salander—the troubled, wise-beyond-her-years genius hacker who came to his aid in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and who now becomes the focus and fierce heart of The Girl Who Played with Fire. As Blomkvist, alone in his belief in Salander's innocence, plunges into an investigation of the slayings, Salander herself is drawn into a murderous hunt in which she is the prey, and which compels her to revisit her dark past in an effort to settle with it once and for all.

Quicklets: Your Reading Sidekick! MEET THE AUTHOR Davanna Cimino has a life-long love of literature. She is a copy editor and copywriter, writes fiction and poetry, and has a law degree. She lives on the Gulf Coast of Florida. She has three sons, and a Brittany named Jubal. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Steig Larsson gave Lasse Winkler, editor in chief of the Swedish book trade magazine Svensk Bokhandel, one of the last if not the last interviews of his life. Winkler remembered Larsson in this article in The Telegraph. The interview was conducted before the Millennium trilogy went global. In the interview, Larsson anticipated what the success of his fiction-writing would mean to him personally and professionally, and discussed the genesis of the series, including The Girl Who Played With Fire (TGWPWF). Larsson told Winkler that the seed of the character of Lisbeth Salander was Pippi Longstocking. From the website Pippi's World.com: She can do very bizarre things on account of her strength, such as lifting her horse from one place to another and throwing people across a room! In one place it is said that Pippi Longstocking has the strength of ten full-grown men. Larsson asked himself What would she be like today? What would she be like as an adult? What would you call a person like that? A sociopath? Hyperactive? Wrong. She simply sees society in a different light. Ill make her 25 years-old, and an outcast. She has no friends and is deficient in social skills. That was my original thought. Larsson told Winkler that he also used another character of Pippi Longstockings creator, Astrid Lindgrenthe boy detective, Kalle Blomkvistas the inspiration for Mikael Blomkvist. Only now hes 45 years-old... . An altruistic know-it-all... ., according to Larsson. Larsson explained to Winkler that he learned the mechanics of crime fiction from the books he reviewed when he worked at Swedish TT news agency. Larsson cites the authors whose work he critiquedSara Paretsky, Val McDermid, Elizabeth George and Minette Walters as influences. Buy a copy to keep reading!

Lisbeth Salander, heroine of Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and its sequels, is one of the most compelling, complex characters of our time. Is she an avenging angel? A dangerous outlaw? What makes Salander tick, and why is our response to her—and to Larsson's Millennium trilogy—so strong? In The Psychology of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, 19 psychologists and psychiatrists attempt to do what even expert investigator Mikael Blomkvist could not: understand Lisbeth Salander. • What does Lisbeth's infamous dragon tattoo really say about her? • Why is Lisbeth so drawn to Mikael, and what would they both need to do to make a relationship work? • How do we explain men like Martin Vanger, Nils Bjurman, and Alexander Zalachenko? Is Lisbeth just as sexist and as psychopathic as they are? • What is it about Lisbeth that allows her to survive, even thrive, under extraordinary conditions? • How is Lisbeth like a Goth-punk Rorschach test? And what do we learn about ourselves from what we see in her?
