Publisher's Summary

Salander is plotting her revenge - against the man who tried to kill her, and against the government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life. But it is not going to be a straightforward campaign. After taking a bullet to the head, Salander is under close supervision in Intensive Care, and is set to face trial for three murders and one attempted murder on her eventual release.

With the help of journalist Mikael Blomkvist and his researchers at Millennium magazine, Salander must not only prove her innocence, but identify and denounce the corrupt politicians that have allowed the vulnerable to become victims of abuse and violence. Once a victim herself, Salander is now ready to fight back.

What the Critics Say

"With the spiky and sassy Lisbeth Salander - punkish wild child, traumatised survivor of the 'care' system, sexual adventurer and computer hacker of genius - Larsson created the most original heroine to emerge in crime fiction for many years." (The Independent)
"Complex, satisfying, clever, moral...a grown-up novel for grown-up readers...this is why the Millennium Trilogy is rightly a publishing phenomenon all over the world." (Kate Mosse)

    "didn't want this book to end"

    I loved all three of these books, I was so sad when the story came to an end. Not some thing I would normally do but will listen again in the future

    "Part 3 a triumph!"

    Loved the final part of this trilogy, couldn't put it down. No wonder these books are best sellers!

    "A good story but far too long"

    Does the reader need an itemised list of furniture bought by the main charachter from IKEA, including the prices and names of each and every bookcase table and chair? Despite the unnecessary clutter surrounding it the actual story is very entertaining and well worth the trouble.

    Consider the abridged versions though.

    "Good sequel"

    Though not as gripping as the first in the trilogy, this is a worthy sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo but it might be a bit hard to follow if listened to as a stand alone book

    Excellent book and brought to life by an enjoyable narrator. If you liked reading it you will enjoy this!

    "The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest"

    I think this is the best trilogy I have ever read, it took me ages to be persuaded to download the first one as I tend to be wary of a lot of hype, but I have to say it had me hooked and the second and third sequals did not disappoint me, I couldn't wait to listen and enjoyed every single minute of each one, I highly recommend this series to anyone as I cannot imagine there would be anyone who wouldn't like them.

    "Millenium Triology"

    This is a review for all the books in The MIllenium Triology. I have read the books and watched the Swedish films (with subtitles) and just listened to the audible versions. I found the books and audible versions impossible to put down or turn off. Several times I had to rewind having fallen asleep listening to them. Saul Reichlin is absolutely brilliant as the narrator, I am currently listening to other authors narrated by him. I found myself sitting in the car in the drive listening to the end of a chapter!!
    The Girl with Dragon Tattoo could be read on its own without reading the following two books, however the following novels do need reading in order, The Girl who Played with Fire and The Girl who kicked the Hornets Nest and could be probably regarded as the two parts of one book.
    Would I recommend them definitely, and if you find them a bit hard going at first, stick with it.

    "An outstanding novel"

    I found this to be just as good as the other two in the trilogy. The narrator is excellent and I found myself inventing reasons to get out of the house so I could carry on listening to all three of these novels. Have recommended them to everyone I can think of. The characters are believable, inspired and addictive. The plots are complex and very well thought out, coming together very well but certainly not predictably.

    "Nerd meets thriller"

    One of things that I like about this series is the rather nerdy way that the author goes into great detail about things that seem incidental such as the capacity of PCs and lap-tops, the serial numbers of bits of kit like phones and the legal framework of parts of the Swedish constitution. Once this has happened a few times, it seems normal. It's not of course but it's part of the charm.

    I have loved the whole series, especially books 1 and 3 and I'm sad to have finished them all. This series is not even within hailing distance of my normal comfort zone and I'm so glad I downloaded them and gave them a chance. There are such variations in the story, with rapid pace in parts, then long episodes of slow action. But it's never dull.

    "This book is a must listen"

    I feel there is little point in writing the review to this because if you have come this far into the series then whether you listen to this one is non negotiable. The events of the previous book are non negotiable, it has to be listened to. Do of course make sure you listen to the two previous books. Even if you do not listen to the girl with the dragon tattoo you have to listen to the girl that played with fire. That is the book that really sets the scene for this one. If you are anything like me you will be wondering at the end if their are any more Stieg Larsson books to go through. I might have to try and raise him from the dead so that I can hear more. Having said that though I do think that he concludes the trilogy very well and it does not feel as though there is anything missing.
