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.

Lizbeth is the toughest victim that I have come across. Larsson made me really feel the injustice done to this young girl, but he does not linger on it. The complexity of the plot kept my interest and ... Read full review

Review: The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (Millennium #3)

User Review  - Derek Balaam - Goodreads

Stieg Larsson finished this trilogy just brilliantly. The story moved right along and I couldn't put the book down. Lisabeth Sander is such a deeply complicated character, you can't help but admire her. Stieg Larsson passed away far too early and we missed out on the stories that were to come. Read full review
