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.

It's just ok
I really want to like this 3 book series, but unfortunately the writing really starts to wear thin. Overly detailed to the point of boredom and so long winded that it becomes painfully obvious that there isn't much going on in the story. The repetition of details and recap of 'the story so far' by each and every single character becomes tedious. I found myself finishing the books by simply skimming paragraph after paragraph. And yet, I still understood every detail of the overall storyline.
Bottom line - these stories could have been condensed by several chapters per book.
Recommended, but just barely.
Awesome way of closing a trilogy
After the first two sequel you wouldn't know what way the author would go to close his masterpiece trilogy. Just as you expect something similar with gory details, this time it moves up the chain of command and dissect the inner working of the Swedish political system. It's a fantastic read.
This series was great. Characters were 3 dimensional. Author kept you guessing. Not a dull moment. I highly recommend all three books.
