Second in Larsson’s Trilogy

When The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was first published in the U.S., after being a huge success in Europe, many wondered if Americans would appreciate this raw thriller with its themes of sexual abuse. After five weeks on the NYT Fiction bestseller list and 21 more on the extended list, it is still on at #33. Many libraries are still working through long reserve lists for it.

Coming in July is the second volume in the trilogy, The Girl Who Played with Fire.

It was released in the UK in January, where it followed its predecessor onto the bestseller lists and received stellar reviews:

Sunday Times of London, Review by Joan Smith; “even more gripping and astonishing than the first.”

Times of London, Review by Marcel Berlins; “the urgency of Larsson’s prose prevents boredom in reading a book that would otherwise be regarded as over-long and over-crammed. Somehow, Larsson has managed to write a riveting read.”

The Guardian, Review by Louise France; it is “that rare thing – a sequel that is even better than the book that went before.”

According to the Knopf catalog, it will also be available in large print and audio.
