any thing written by this person is awsome....some of the books take a little time to get into it....but just keep reading...i love them all and wish i could read some more of his books...but alas he has died awsome books just awsome
this book picks up exactly where the last book left off. if you havn't listened to the girl who played with fire yet, then the opening of this book will be very confusing. go get the first two books and listen to them first. then this book will be as understandable and undeniable as the first two. this book starts out as a spy thriller and murder mystery blended into one. those two elements are the driving factors here with some high tech cloak and dagger for spice. for the climax, it changes completely into a court room drama before reverting back to a personal drama for the finale and epiloge. get all three "girl" books. and don't be suprised if you feel like one listen wasn't enough.
I was new to Larsson's "The Girl" series when I bought and listened to this, the third installment. I liked it very much so I then listened to the one that came before and eventually I will hear the first one. It turns out that had I taken the time to check I would have found that the books make up a trilogy and thus each book builds towards the next and should be taken in order. Listen or read tattoo first and then fire and last hornet's nest and you will enjoy the series, at least in my opinion, much more. The books are well written with interesting storylines and the narration is great. There is a good amount of explanation of certain aspects of politics and historical events but not being Swedish I had no clue and found the information educational and providing a framework for the storylines.
Read all three books in the Millennium Trilogy. Watched the two movies that have been released in the States so far (also great, but read the books first) and am eagerly awaiting this last one. I'm addicted. So I googled him only to find out that he passed away - didn't even get to find out how popular his books became...I feel so sad for him and hope that at least his family and friends find some solace in that knowledge.
Start at the beginning of this trilogy and listen to all 3 books.. I wasn't sure at first about a book that had to be translated --- but it was fantastic. So sorry to not have any more to look forward to... Larsson's tale kept me involved - trying to figure out what would happen next ...... Loved Vance's Narration.
While I enjoyed this book for the most part, I don't think it compares to the first two in the series. It is much like a drawn-out conclusion, and didn't do much to keep me interested. I listened to this book over about two weeks, while the first two were both finished in a week (I listen to books while I'm at work).
I certainly don't regret purchasing the final chapter, it was a decent listen, and closed up the series satisfactorily.
Great following the continuing lives of the main characters. I feel as though I've stayed with them forever and find the author's consistency incredible. A fun book that kept me with it the entire way. Hopefully, there will be another in the series.
Not for the faint of heart! A real page turner, If you don't like violence you shouldn't read. The narrator did a good job with the different sexes as sometimes that doesn't work for me,( a man doing a woman) Loved it Loved it! As I did all of his books

Stieg Larsson has done it again and whomever the translator is does an amazing job of bringing forth visions of the characters.
Since reading the series, I have seen the movie version and I must say that the cast if characters are very much like I imagined then to be.
I hope that I have more opportunity to follow the adventures and mis-adventures of Elizbeth Sallinger.
