About The Book:
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.
I love this book and thought it finished the series very well. (I recommend you read the series in order though). I have to admit there were a few paragraphs I skipped because I just couldn't care less about the arrangement of government in Sweden. If I were to read it again I would keep a list of each characters names so I could keep them straight easier. Dorky, I know, but the foreign names just don't distinguish themselves in my mind very well.
My Rating: 4/5 Stars
