The Girl Who Played with Fire - Stieg Larsson the second book of the series continues to prove chuck d's point. more dead-end subplots in this one, and too many characters, and a homeric catalogue of ikea found me ranting about this book. people told me that the first one laid the ground work and i'd like this one better. they were wrong. salander is an interesting freak to read about, but the books are a patchwork of bits that don't come together cohesively. there is too much here: i really wish the dross had been cut away. it might have been a great book.
