Publisher's Summary

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.


What the Critics Say

“Larsson’s vivid characters, the depth of detail across three books, the powerfully imaginative plot, and the sheer verve of the writing make the trilogy a masterpiece of the genre.” (The Economist)
“The literary equivalent of a caffeine rush. . . . Larsson was one of those rare writers who could keep you up until 3 a.m. and then make you want to rush home the next night to do it again.” (Newsweek)
“Salander is someone you will never forget. . . . Anyone who enjoys grounding their imaginations in hundreds . . . of exciting pages about the way we live now ought to take advantage of this trilogy.” (Chicago Tribune)

Sometimes when you're done listening to a book, you just can't stand the silence that follows. This is precisely the case here. I miss Lisbeth. I miss Simon's voice. I miss thinking about what Larsson was going to do with the plot.

Simon Vance is the perfect reader for this exciting conclusion to the trilogy. I'm ready to listen to it again so I can pick up more detail. Excellent.

Vance and Larsson deliver another winner

I so eagerly awaited the 3rd installment of the Millenium Triolgy that I purchased a copy of the UK book in December rather than wait until it's May arrival in the US. After reading two hundred pages in the first week I realized 2 things. While Larsson is a great writer, I dearly missed the way Vance brought everything to life. I put the book down and waited the 6 months for the audio release. I was not disapointed. The team of Larsson and Vance delivered another winner.
