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)
Great book from a great series. Interesting charactors, a little twisted in the story line(but I like that) Moves along well. Keeps you interested, and very well read.
This is the final in a trilogy. It is very well written and the title says it all. It is a real Hornet's nest. Read the first two Dragon tattoo and fire. in that order. Plow through Tattoo it sets up the story. Very well read, the same person narrates all three. Excellent read. I want to read more. But I have to wait for the lawsuit to be over.
Retired autoworker, and photographer! Started to listen to audio books, when I developed cataracts, and never stopped! Love the listen!
This last book in the trilogy does not disappoint. It brought all the plots and characters full circle. I feel like I know them all.
I think it's a decent end to the three books. Why repeat all the ancient history over and over again, do people forget so easily? and who writes a trilogy and retells the whole story in each book?
I was sorry to see the book come to an end and hope the family differences of the late Steig Larrson can be settled so the series can continue. Some of the sex is over described for my taste, and could be toned down to allow our imaginations fill in the gaps if we wanted to. All of the characters are so well developed and I can see each scene in my mind, which is the result of an excellent writer. Steig, your creativity will be missed.

It was a great story---but I felt this installment (so far) ran out of steam. What was up with the whole Gibraltar scene?
Anyway, I loved the series but thought this book a bit flat.
