    "Nice Book"

    Really good book. I have throughly enjoyed listening to it. Tried to read the paperback version but could not get in to it. Listening to the story brings it alive.

    "AWESOME!"

    As with all of this series, this book was, as my review title suggests, AWESOME!

    The story was read in true form and the narrator was excellent.

    WELL RECOMMENDED!

    "Excellent end to the trilogy"

    Another excellent book by Larson, a little difficult to keep track of all the different people and places but you get there in the end. An excellent sequel and well worth the money/credit given the length of the book

    "Great audio version of a good book"

    I found book 2 of the trilogy a bit of a disappointment so was unsure what to expect from this. I shouldn't have been concerned - Larsson was back on form with this. At first I was unsure about the narrator but he actually does a good job. He clearly enjoyed reading the Swedish names and locations!

    "The perfect plot"

    The last of the Millenium series. A rather complex plot, demanding quite a lot of effort to follow - especially with the many Swedish names of streets and people - Lots of characters and lots of details that require concentration.

    But the concentration is eased by the plot that is so captivating, and by the narrator who reads at a very agreable pace, with quite clear distinctions between the characters. (at times, it can be a bit confusing, but this might be due to the fact that it is hard to choose a different pitch of voice for each of the many characters that are involved). The narrator did a great job.

    I highly recommand (after having read/listened to the previous books).

    "Stieg Larsson"

    having been advised to skip the middle of the Girl Tattoo series i went into this 3rd book and very quickly was able to pick up the characters and flow.
    It is demanding as it's deep,well written and deserves to be read with full concentration.
    The plot unfolds beautifully and the ending is worth waiting for.
    I look forward to more from Stieg

    "Fabulous!"

    The two earlier books in this trilogy were presents and were the abridged versions. I enjoyed them but they were over too quickly so when it came to me to buy the third book I went for the unabridged version. It was great to hear the fine detail and characterisation and I became totally immersed in the tale. The reader was not the best I've heard but the writing was so outstanding that this did not matter. If only the reader from the abridged stories could have read the unabridged one it would have increased my enjoyment further. Well worth while but listen to/read the other two books first.

    "Three Books that Should be One!"

    I am writing the same review for the entire trilogy for in my mind they are one story and I listened to them from beginning to end which means that now I actually have difficulty in remembering what bits occurred in what novel but then maybe that is not a criticism as after all I see the trilogy as one book and the story does not really end till the end of the third book. (Books two and Three are admittedly more closely linked to each other than the first one).

    Excellent story and intricately interwoven plots. Lots of surprises and many predicable things occur, but then that makes the story all the more believable. Its not often that a story comes based on Swedish culture and as such it took a little getting used to as they obviously have a different outlook on social care than what we might be used to in this country.

    My main gripe, if there is one is the detail that the author goes into in describing things of even a slightly technical nature. Do we really need to know the model number of each piece of equipment used by the main characters? It is a thin line between educating your readers in things they may not be full au fait with and treating them like idiots not knowing a thing about the technology described.

    On the whole great work off now to watch the films, will I be disappointed?
