Coming September 2015: The Girl in the Spider's Web

In the third volume of the Millennium series, Lisbeth Salander lies in critical condition in a Swedish hospital, a bullet in her head.

But she's fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she'll stand trial for three murders. With the help of Mikael Blomkvist, she'll need to identify those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she'll seek revenge--against the man who tried to killer her and against the corrupt government institutions that nearly destroyed her life.

Real good. A bit slower as the first two, as the reader is expected to grasp some political and historical background of Sweden. Nevertheless, all is set out to the reader in a very digestible manner ... Read full review
