Best Books of 2009: The Girl Who Played with Fire

It's that time of year again, and your friendly neighborhood librarians are eager to tell you about the best books of 2009. Here is David with a review of his favorite book of the year.

Larrson burst onto the international bestseller lists last year with his debut, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which was about as good a book as I read during all of last year. Fans of that one will not be disappointed, for once the violence at the heart of this story occurs, Larrson is in great form. Lisbeth Salander remains one of the most original characters that I've come across--tough, fragile, troubled, brilliant and hard to fathom, but absolutely riveting to read about.
