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.

All three of these books were thoroughly engrossing. Although the story moves a bit slowly at the beginning of each volume to setup the intricacies of the plot, the reader is led on a fantastic journey of intrigue, suspense, and action. I listened to all 3 books in succession, with each story becoming better than the next. Larsson does such a masterful job of creating such vivid characters in these books that I do not think I will ever forget them. Highly recommended!
