I have finished reading The Girl Who Played with Fire. I enjoyed reading the book and I did not want to put it down. There is a scene in the book, which makes me laugh aloud for several minutes. I woke my husband up I laughed so hard. I read the scene to him and he laughed too. 90-pound Lisbeth, beats up two bikers in the scene.
Guess what, I made a prediction and I was correct. Ronald is Lisbeth’s brother. We even meet her loving, nurturing dad (NOT!). In this novel, we find out all about Lisbeth’s childhood and the reason she spends three years in a mental institution. At the end of the novel Lisbeth has been shot three times and one of the bullets is in her head. She is found by Kalle Blomkvist.
I read the bio on The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, the last book in the trilogy, and it begins with Lisbeth being in a hospital, fighting for her life and if she survives, she will have to stand trial for three murders. Okay, we know there is an American idiom for dying termed “kicked the bucket,” so I wonder will Lisbeth actually die and that is the meaning of the title.
Lisbeth is a master computer hacker and her online name is Wasp. In the first book, she had a wasp tattoo but had it removed. Okay, I know, there I go again making predictions, but if you are not making predictions you are not enjoying a book, but if the book is too predictable you may be bored with it. I will read the last book and let you all know what I think. I have The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, on hold at my local library.
Happy Reading and Writing,
