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.

Listen to the rest of The Millennium Trilogy.

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)

    "Excellent"

    Best of the books in the trilogy! Vance's narration is fantastic! I only wish this wasn't the end of Lisbeth's story...

    "Fantastic Narrator"

    This entire series was excellent, and I would recommend them to anyone. However, what made me want to review this audio book was the fact that Simon Vance is hands down the best narrator I have come across. He made all three books so much better. His range is fantastic. I think he definitely added to my enjoyment of this series.

    "Hornet's Nest"

    I enjoyed all three books and the plot was out standing. I couldn't stop listening.

    "He phoned it in."

    Too many tangential characters. Too much describing Swedish bureaucracy and politics. Not enough action. No plot twists worth not mentioning. Fire left things in the air and so people like me who can't put a book down half way through, just in case it gets good at the end, will not be able to not plow through this book. It is a predictable book that offers no further character development and would have benefited from a good editor (who would have surely ripped out most of the middle).

    "Best of the trilogy."

    Although Larsson could have benefitted from a stronger editor, this is the most tightly written of the three novels, and satisfyingly wraps up the tale. Nicely read by Simon Vance.

    "Coffee High, Part 3"

    I've never seen characters gulp so much coffee as I did with these three "Girl With" books. The narrator does a good job with the subtleties of all the voices and the story was very gripping. This one was a little more preachy on the topic of "men who hate women" but all in all, very suspenseful, and very entertaining. Well-rounded characters. It was nice to see the growth in all the characters from "Tattoo" to "Fire" to this third installment.

    If you haven't listened to the first to books yet, go back. Get them first. It will be much more entertaining and enjoyable for you. Half the fun was to see the growth in all the main characters.

    "The girl that kicked the Hornets nest"

    Really good book, starts a little slow but hang on it picks up. All three books are entertaining and keeps you wanting more. You won't want to put it down until you are finished. It's too bad that there isn't more to follow-up in the series.
