Synopsis

Salander is plotting her revenge – against the man who tried to kill her, and against the government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life. But it is not going to be a straightforward campaign. After taking a bullet to the head, Salander is under close supervision in Intensive Care, and is set to face trial for three murders and one attempted murder on her eventual release.With the help of journalist Mikael Blomkvist and his researchers at Millennium magazine, Salander must not only prove her innocence, but identify and denounce the corrupt politicians that have allowed the vulnerable to become victims of abuse and violence.Once a victim herself, Salander is now ready to fight back.“One of crime fiction’s most unforgettable characters.” People“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 “Gripping. . . . Lisbeth Salander . . . is one of the most original characters in a thriller to come along in a while.” The New York Times“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“Exhilarating. . . . Larsson’s was an undeniably powerful voice in crime fiction that will be sorely missed.” Publishers Weekly“The pages fly. . . . The pulse quickens.”  The Boston GlobeComplex, satisfying, clever, moral . . . This is a grown-up novel for grown-up readers, who want something more than a quick fix and a car chase.”  The Guardian
