The stunning third and final novel in Stieg Larsson’s internationally best-selling trilogy.
Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge—against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.
Once upon a time, she was a victim. Now Salander is fighting back.

“Larsson’s vivid characters, the depth of detail across three books, the powerfully imaginative plot, and the sheer verve of the writing make the trilogy a masterpiece of the genre.” (The Economist)
“The literary equivalent of a caffeine rush. . . . Larsson was one of those rare writers who could keep you up until 3 a.m. and then make you want to rush home the next night to do it again.” (Newsweek)
“Salander is someone you will never forget. . . . Anyone who enjoys grounding their imaginations in hundreds . . . of exciting pages about the way we live now ought to take advantage of this trilogy.” (Chicago Tribune)
I strongly suggest that readers follow this series in order. I think you would be lost reading this one out of order or not having read the prior two books. That being said, all three kept me interested.
What a shame that the author did not live to see how much reading pleasure his novels have brought to so many!
Larsson's writing is smart and captivating. His characters are people you wish you really knew, though you feel you do. This novel, the third in the series, did not disappoint. If you have not read the first two, lucky you! You still have a treat in store. Do start at the beginning to get the most out of the story and the characters. I hated to reach the end of the series.
what a great third book. wish there could be more but I will have to settle for these three. outstanding narration. so sad the author left us before we could have more of his fantastic writing.
If I could, I would re-read/listen to this whole series again and again! Magical and awesome ending to a fantastic series!!!! DON'T HESITATE, BUY IT !!!!
Reading the other two first really makes this book become the pinnacle in the series, amazing. No question the books got better with each one as did the characters. Could not of finished up any better. I really like the author and wish he was still around to write another because he is unique, special. This was an epic series. As a side comment I think Simon Vance is a pretty good narrator too.
This series has been one of my favorite in a long time and can't wait for the movies to follow. I've truly enjoyed Mr. Larsson's writing--he will be missed. It made my walks bearable and my commute a breeze. I even got my stepson involved with the series.
Could not put this down. Such great plot lines, and wonderful narration! The trilogy gives the author time to really develop the characters, which cannot always be said for such fast-paced books.
I have listened to all 3 books in a row while travelling trough the north of Belgium. It was a fantastic experience. The story is intelligent, exciting and totally addictive.
A must listen...
I'm so sad that Stieg Larsson is no longer with us to carry on with this story. Lisbeth is an absolutely enthralling character. I was happy for her vindication in this final book. It was so well written, and so completely summed up, there really is no need for further books other than for curiosity's sake. It's not often that you can finish a book series with the feeling that every score had been settled as you do with this book. There is rumor of a 4th book, incomplete on his laptop, and I hope it stays that way. It ended splendidly, and we should let them all rest in peace.
