    All the popular novels are being turned into graphic novels right now. I actually appreciate this. These Millennium books are so long and to be able to read one in an hour and remember the details is nice. That's what I like about them. It's like a movie version. The art is decent. They don't show the worst of the blood and gore - I appreciate that. The story moves along. It is entertaining and a tough story to read. I mean some of the worst parts of our world are in this.

    3.5/5 stars I am a big fan of the Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson. So I was very excited to read these Vertigo graphic novels by Denise Mina. I absolutely loved The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo graphic novel. But liked this second one less. This graphic novel was very long. I read and loved the Titan graphic novels by Sylvain Runberg. In comparison these Vertigo ones are brighter and darker (which I think is good). But they go into so much more detail. This is good and bad.

Whereas the Titan comics really focused on essential plot points. This version seems to encompass a lot more. It is much more complex and detailed. And honestly it felt like too much for a graphic novel. The illustrations were good. And the story was good. There were just too many details for a comic IMO.

    I received an electronic ARC of this graphic novel in exchange for an honest review. I previously read the Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson, and the character of Lisbeth Salander is compelling. In the second book, The Girl Who Played with Fire, he tells us more about her back story while more is happening with Blomkvist and his news magazine. I have already reviewed the novel, so when I got a copy of this I felt like I should focus more on the graphic novel experience.

I have already reviewed the novel, so when I got a copy of this I felt like I should focus more on the graphic novel experience. First of all, I stumbled with the interface as I do with most graphic novels in digital form, because they all suffer from huge file size and loading time. I hope someone figures that out someday, but what happens is that my brain processes it faster than the file loads the next page. The art has a wide range, with most of the book comprised of looser sketch style with indistinct faces - this actually creates some problems since the book is set in Sweden and it is hard to tell the characters apart. Lisander, Miriam, and Zala are the only people who are easily known, but since Lisander is often traveling in disguise and Miriam likes to change her appearance, visually recognizing the characters is a bit of a struggle that would have been aided by more detail in the drawings. Every once in a while shadows are used in a striking way, particularly when Lisander is confronting others in horizontal panels down the page, and those are quite memorable, as are the infrequent full-page panels such as the one on the cover. Some of the pages have so many dialogue bubbles it is difficult to keep the story straight, and I understand that adapting a crime novel is no small feat. I think it would have been interesting to translate even more of the story into a showing, not a telling. Still I enjoyed it, if you can enjoy entering into the world of a person possibly forever damaged by an unfortunate and violent upbringing such as Lisander's.

    Well, I did prefer the first volume, to be entirely honest. The drawing style has changed a lot. Here all the images are more angular, lines are less soft than the previous work. I'm not that familiar with the artists so I can't exactly pinpoint where lies the difference. But for me it was huge. Also I had trouble following the plot at some point. There were events going on in the book and I was barely aware of them.

I'll probably read the third volume when - or if - it's published.

    Huge fan of the original series... the first volume of this graphic novel was okay... but this one has SO MANY ERRORS. And I'm not even referring to the editing choices and plot cuts. I mean like wrong names/misspellings/etc. There isn't much text so some editing would have been appreciated. The style of the drawings is also worse and more hurried than the others. Feels like this was a very rushed project. Huge fan of the original series... the first volume of this graphic novel was okay... but this one has SO MANY ERRORS.

    This one was a little boring. The human trafficking doesn't translate well to this format or maybe it was just way too much information to try to cram in addition to Lisbeth's background. There was not enough of her in this book and the police investigation bored me. The graphics on this one also seemed more boxy. Square faces, hard to tell which characters were depicted at times, and in general, not very appealing to the eye.

Lisbeth Salander eludes a darkness and this really came across in the book.

    The second graphic novel in the Millennium series loses some of the wow factor the first one had. The violence towards women in general feels repetitive and feels like it's covering up the lack of a substantial plot. Lisbeth is still a badass and great protagonist to read about but she doesn't have much time to shine with the B-list subplot.

    To date I have not read any of the actual Millennium Trilogy books from the late Stieg Larsson. The closest I'd come prior to this graphic novel adaptation of the second book was David Fincher's movie based on the first one (which I enjoyed).

The closest I'd come prior to this graphic novel adaptation of the second book was David Fincher's movie based on the first one (which I enjoyed). When these books became bestsellers, I was working at a bookstore, so I was very much aware of their popularity. Digging deeper into the material, I must say I'm still surprised by that. I'm also disappointed that everyone who read them, apparently, didn't take anything at all away from that except, "Hey! everyone else is reading them, and so should I!" Which is what results in the popularity of a lot of things, of course, but you always wish people would actually...grow? based on the stuff they've experienced, especially with something as provocative as Larsson's books. Reading Played with Fire, in whatever form, is a reminder that the author really did know what he was doing. I remember that the last book, Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest had a poorer critical reception than its predecessors mostly because it was an actual sequel (to Played with Fire) rather than just another book featuring Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander, the iconic and eponymous character who probably put the books on the map in the first place. (That's exactly what happened to the Matrix sequels, by the way.) Like the Liam Neeson Taken movie series, Larsson's books were an exploration of the world of sex trafficking, with female empowerment as subplot. Dragon Tattoo was a way of introducing this, as well as Blomkvist and Salander, how they met. Played with Fire, it turns out, is a much more personal story, in which people Salander made enemies out of previously (the legal guardian she took revenge on, for instance) try to eliminate her, which ends up becoming far more relevant to Blomkvist (a crusading investigative journalist) than he could have previously imagined. This makes for storytelling that's a lot more about people talking about things, knowing they'll probably get in trouble and trying to work their way out of it, than action. The more comfortable you are with this the more you will enjoy it. The moment you wonder if this will actually be boring, the story twists. The twists are fairly traditional genre material. The more personal it gets, however, the more intriguing. Basically, if you really do care about Lisbeth Salander as a character, Played with Fire is essential reading (as, consequently, I assume Kicked the Hornet's Nest is as well) for Millennium Trilogy fans. The only real comment I have on the graphic novel itself is that the use of several artists can be a little jarring. I'm partial to Antonio Fuso myself, so I wouldn't have minded at all if he was the only one on the project. As it is, you probably won't be sold on this adaptation on the promise of the art. You don't really need to be. This is solid material. I don't know how much Denise Mina's version differs from Larsson's (I will be reading the books later this year), but I assume negligibly. And hopefully, because of adaptations like Fincher's movie and these graphic novels, readers not strictly hopping on bandwagons will take notice of what Larsson was really trying to do.

Writer: Denise Mina Art: Leonardo Manco, Andrea Mutti, and Antonio Fuso cover: Lee Bermejo I'm a big fan of Denise Mina (from her run on Hellblazer with Leonardo Manco and Lee Bermejo) as well as Leonardo Manco...although Andrea Mutti and Antonio Fuso were new creators to me. Admittedly the only previous knowledge I had of this series was through the movie "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" which for all I know is loosely based off of the book series. This particular book's delivery on a good story wasn't hindered on my not knowing any previous knowledge. AND THAT'S A GOOD THING (I never got the feeling of being lost). There's Lisbeth Salander who's one of the revolving main characters of the story who's been missing for roughly 6 months and as she reenters the picture Mikael Blomkvist (the reporter) is working on an article about the trafficking of women with Ricky (his lover), Dag and Mia (who are the two who've been working on the case to expose these PoS people) and it seems to be coming along smoothly. As the group get closer to publishing the article at their magazine (called the Millennium) things take a turn for the horrendous. People get hurt and it seems that Lisbeth is linked with the traffickers (something not of her own doing, of course ). Lisbeth does seem to have a dissociative disorder developed through past experiences (I can't spoil here), but luckily she's not alone in this story. There's still Holger Palmgren in the picture who's still alive, which is good news. There's Miriam Wu who's her girlfriend and a strong character. There's Paulo Roberto, who's the boxer, that trained Lisbeth in kickboxing. They all help Lisbeth through this ordeal, and only add to the story imo. I won't spoil the ending; however, it seems it was left open ended because there were still a few plot points left hanging in the air. Overall, the reading was satisfying...I never got lost and the story was easy enough to follow...the characters, despite being quite a few, felt like individuals and enriched the story...the art (although I expected almost the entire book to be done by Leonardo Manco (HELLBLAZER)) was acceptable throughout and consistent. There were quite a few surprises throughout the book that were not all too predictable...the overall package was a fun experience.

The sequence of events can also be confusing; sometimes it’s not clear which balloon you should read first. Three stars because the book is still very intriguing and because I really enjoyed reading more about Lisbeth’s past, Lisbeth’s on-again/off-again relationship with Mimmi and about how the media portrays sex trafficking.

    Given that the "Girl Who Played With Fire" is the weakest of Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy, one shouldn't be surprised that the graphic novel adaption isn't quite stellar. One can only do so much to overcome the weakness of source material. Still, Mina does pretty good work adapting Larsson's coincidence and prose heavy novel, particularly when it comes to paring back the most turgid and polemical sections.

Larsson's characters remain a little one note. The population of superheroes and super villains (the former a bit too pure and heroic and the latter a bit too mustache twisting)remains a burden on the story. Moreover, Manco's highly stylized art leaves the characters indistinct on the page, often causing a head scratch. Basically, if you absolutely need to complete your Millennium collection (because you are a huge fan) or want to be spared his second novel, this may be a purchase to consider.

    As someone who has read the book, I think this graphic edition was less than stellar. Many of the panels are downright confusing and the ending is atrocious.

The plot of the book also seems a bit choppy and jumpy.

    There are two intertwined tales in The Girl Who Played With Fire. The first concerns the backstory of Liabeth Salandar. The second has the magazine crew tracking down relevant information on individuals involved in sex trade in Sweden. The two tales converge in a fiery confrontation that lies the groundwork for the next book. Unfortunately, I did not find this volume as compelling as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

    This was an interesting graphic novel. Adapted from the novel The Girl Who Played with Fire, it was like watching a crime drama on t.v., complete with murders and bad guys, and girls with attitude. It was intense, with abuse of a child as the background and reason for some of the murders and crime sprees. The illustrations were very good, definitely showing off the book in vivid scenes.

    A faithful adaptation of Larsson's book. The dark artwork is complimentary to the subject material. From what I remember of the novel, it's an excellent, though lengthy, retelling of the second part of the Blomkvist/Salandar tale. The thing I liked most was the multiple wordless panels which take the place of some of the tedious expository writing of the novel - though my recollection is that the first book had more banal description than this one.

    Wow. Really awesome. There are few words. But if pictures are worth a thousand words, this graphic novel adaptation of this book calls to mind the thousands of words in the novel itself. You will not be disappointed by any of these adaptations if you loved the books, and/or the Swedish movie adaptations.

    I liked this one better than the first one, so glad the author did not go for shock value and have the artist draw everything, I can tell they left out the grosses stuff, not sure I could have read this on the actual page, but in graphic novel form I can look away which I admit I had to do during this series. Looking forward to the final book coming in so I can finish the series

    I like it a lot because I would like anything related to the series. I love the Millennium trilogy (now a tetralogy) but for a comic that would be targeted to an audience of nerds and geeks (C'mon is a comic), the technical side is a bit on the below garbage side. It would have been better if all the computers/mobile devices screens were blanks. I like it a lot because I would like anything related to the series.

    Follows the movie pretty well, there are some added scenes and some scenes that were not in the movie but it was overall very good.
