The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson

From AudioFile magazine:
Fair warning: Once begun, you will not be able to stop listening to this audiobook. So prepare to spend a lot of sleepless time with fabulous narrator Simon Vance and amazing Swedish writer Stieg Larsson. This sequel to Larsson’s critically acclaimed bestseller, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, which Vance also narrated, reunites us with Lisbeth Salander—asocial genius and hacker—and Mikael Blomkvist—publisher of a national newsmagazine. Just as the magazine is about to publish a name-dropping exposé on sex trafficking, its authors are murdered. Lisbeth’s fingerprints are on the murder weapon. Vance’s reading of the breathless plot is faultless. The narrative is warm and enticing; the violence quick and crisp; the characters informatively voiced and unmistakable. Go ahead: listen.

About Simon

Simon is an actor who found his way into audiobook narrating as a side-gig and seems to have made a success of it.
With some training as an actor as a child (just a couple of hours a week, but it stuck) and 15 years working inside the BBC (ending up as one of the presenters/newsreaders on BBC Radio 4 in London) he found the ideal combination for an audiobook narrator.
Found his way to California two decades ago and never left.
