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 really enjoyed all three books that have been published in this series. I'm not sure why, but I didn't like this book as much as I did the first two. Maybe it was the need to tie up a lot of loose ends. But, it really didn't matter, since I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The books in this series are at the top of my favorite book list.
Audiobooks are my drug of choice
I am so going to miss Lisbeth and the other characters in this series! Definitely these should be read in order and maybe more than once! Simon Vance does a great job narrating. I really wish there were more. So much left to find out......
This is the weakest of the 3 books. But I just couldn't stop listening to Simon Vance. I will look for more books narrated by Mr. Vance.
An intelligent and engaging finale. You should read books one and two of the series. I expected Book Three to be anticlimatic, but it very much held my interest.
This author keeps you wanting more, exciting, intrigue, and plenty of action. I have all his books and this final book still has unanswered questions, but we will never know. This author will be missed.
Riveting! Although I thought I knew how it would end I didn't. This author was masterful in weaving all of the threads of a story together and tying all the ends up. I have read where there is a 4th novel but caught up in red tape about publishing. That almost sounds like a story in itself. Maybe one for the life partner to write. I heartily recommend this book to all who like fiction that keeps you going . . .to the end.
It's an excellent trilogy, this being the third book. I truly enjoyed the story.
I just saw the movie of the first book "The girl with Dragon Tattoo" it was in Swedish with English subtitle. The Lisbeth character was excellently portrayed, but a lot of details we naturally missing. Hope they make movies of the 2-nd and 3-rd (this book). To follow the story must start read the books in sequence.
Narrator was excellent too.
What a great trilogy. Simon Vance does an amazing job narrating. Well worth the credits for all three books. I am sorry to see these characters come to an end just as we are really get to know them. A great series like this one does not come around often enough.
So sad that this is the end. The characters are very well developed. Narration was phenomenal! A couple of the areas could've used shorter explanation, but the story was very thorough and unfolded well. Lisbeth Salander is my SHERO! Stieg RIP...you done good!
taking amazing story started with the Dragon Tattoo, and developing to new heights.
the first is better then the second, but the third is above both.
do not Skip any of them, keep the order.
last hour was not a must, but it might be the base to the forth we will never have... pity.
