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.
Fantastic trilogy! Larsson's books are filled with characters that one doesn't get to meet every day, particularly in the U.S. The interpersonal relationships are fascinating, the personalities complex. the society refreshingly different. Prude Alert: this book includes sexual details that some might have a hard time with ( I wouldn't want my 12 year old reading this book!).
I enjoyed the first two books, but I couldn't get into this one. As another reviewer said, the endless narration about government bureaucracy was mind-numbing. And I had a hard time keeping track of all the characters.
