Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

“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)

    "oh no, another police/detective novel"

    Just not my thing, find these sort of books very monotonous. Full of too many details and too many characters and the author had bristish (?) type accent, which I found a little annoying trying to listen to this very detailed and boring book. Every time I thought I had a handle on plot, another character was being thrown in.......Just really do not enjoy this type of book.........detective/murder/mystery/....blah

    "Slower than the first two"

    Having Salander stuck in the hospital for a majority of the story was a real drag for me. The first two stories were full of new people, new twists, new places, etc. I found the third was slower and seemed to be just a wrap up of the second. Good, and maybe even necessary, but I don't want a book/story that is needed like an I needs a dot. I want to want to read the story, and not feel like I'm just reading to wrap up loose ends.

    "good but not great"

    This is a fast read, if you don't like violence, bad language and graphic sex, DO NOT READ! I did not enjoy that aspect of the book.

    "Slow start with midly entertaining plot"

    So this is my second Larsson 'girl' book. I wanted to try another since I had mixed emotions about the first. Once again, it took forever to get into the plot, but I stuck with it. I was grateful to finally have some movement about half way through like the first. This wasn't as interesting as the first, but I think just having something happen made me happy and willing to listen to the rest to see what happened. There are probably hours that could be eliminated that have to do with unrelated background - don't get me wrong I WANT background, think its absolutely necessary - but droning on and on about things that ultimately have nothing to do with anything just makes it seem that these things were added to increase the length of the book. I won't be venturing on to a third. Darn I really, really wanted to like this.

    "Great ending to the series but not my favorite"

    This is the third and final book in the Millenium series. I highly recommend this book but it is necessary, I feel, to read the first two books so that the subtle nuances of this book are fully appreciated. For readers looking for a strong female protagonist, this book does not disappoint. I don't think that I would say that this is my favorite of the three novels, the others were able to stand alone as novels with compelling action, but as a whole the entire series was a great listen. I am looking forward to the movies and hope that they will do the novels justice.

    "Just Not as Good"

    I loved the first one, liked the second one and this one just didn't do it for me. The relationships that were developed in the first installment made the book so wonderful and from then on it just got more political and dense. Stieg Larsson was a gifted writer but this one just left me cold. Sorry to rain on the parade of good reviews.

    "Excellent!!"

    This is one of the most disturbing, yet enthralling series I have ever read. Salinder was subjected to the extremes of injustice and I was satisfied to read that she was totally vindicated. My only, probably unrealistic, hope is that something like this never happened in real life. I was appalled, disturbed and emotionally affected by the series. Kudos, Steig Larsson! I will most certainly listen to the series again.
