About this item

All Lisbeth Salander wants is to pursue her revenge--against the individuals and the institutions--that did their best to destroy her life. Unfortunately, as Steig Larsson opens his third and final chapter in his wildly popular Millennium series, Salander is laid up with critical injuries in the Sahlgrensa hospital and will need the help of newspaper man Mikael Blomkvist in order to put to rest her troubled past--and to prove her still doubted innocence in a slate of Stockholm murders. First on Blomkvist's list of shady characters is Salander's father, a Soviet double-agent who has long worked for Sweden's secret police. Investigating an individual with such a storied past inevitably ticks off some powerful and dangerous individuals, as the journalist slowly begins to unravel a long-buried conspiracy. While Blomkvist doggedly searches for proof of Salander's innocence--and his lady friend Erica struggles with sexism at her new job--Larsson's obsession-worthy heroine is stuck in a hospital bed--but worry not, devoted fans, she can do quite a lot of good damage with a few simple movements of her fingers upon her PDA. Readers of the trilogy will certainly be sad to experience the final chapter in Lisbeth Salander's story as written by Larsson before his death in 2004, but this is a stirring and satisfying conclusion to a fabulous trilogy. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of 2010.
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.
