Wow...installment #2 of The Millennium Series got off to a much slower start than the first. I had trouble sticking with it in the beginning; however, it answered many lingering questions about one of the main characters, Lisbeth Salander. This ended up being as intriguing and suspenseful as the first, but lots of technical and background jargon muddled the story a bit - even after the action got started. Ending was abrupt and definitely makes the reader happy for a third. It will be very interesting to see how the author ended the series and the story of Lisbeth Salander, Kalle Blomkvist and the other cast of characters involved!
