Review of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson

 

The Girl Who Played With Fire is the sequel to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and like the first book it has a lot to say. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is a book about a woman named Lisbeth Salander and a man named Mikael Blomkvist  who team up and solving the disappearance of a missing woman. This book makes a statement about the few rights woman have. This is especially seen by the fact that the missing woman ran away due to  the fact that she couldn’t stand to stay in the house and be at her brother and fathers mercy.The book takes place in Sweden so some things are really hard for people who live in countries like the United States to grasp.

The second book The Girl Who Played With Fire takes place sometime after the first. Lisbeth is accused of murdering two people whom Blomkvist knows and he is determined to prove her innocent. This book gives insight  into Lisbeth complex background. The main point of the book was  to me show other treat people with mental issues. Lisbeth is viewed by those who do not know as mentally challenged and a psychopath. This treatment is caused by people abusing their powers as mental health professionals, cops and so forth. The people do this to destroy Lisbeth credibility about an incident in the path. The book ends on a cliff hanger and the next one takes place immediately after so if you plan to buy this book buy the one after it.
