Lisbeth Salander-the heart of Larsson's two previous novels-is under close supervision in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She's fighting for her life in more ways than one: when she's well enough, she'll stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will have to prove her innocence, and to identify the corrupt politicians who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse. And, on her own, she will plot her revenge-against the man who tried to kill her and the government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life. Once upon a time, she was a victim. Now Lisbeth Salander is ready to fight back.
All Lisbeth Salander wants is to pursue her revenge--against the individuals and the institutions--that sought to destroy her life. Unfortunately, as Steig Larsson opens his third and final chapter in his wildly popular Millennium series, Lisbeth is laid up with critical injuries in the Sahlgrensa hospital and will need the help of Mikael Blomkvist in order to put to rest her troubled past.
