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.

this book is perhaps the best of the three. Steig Larsson seemed to
get better as he went along. What a pity he wont be around to write another book

Steig Larsson's writing only gets better in this the last of his trilogy. His chief protagonists are fighting the forces of darkness
to bring freedom and fairness to the oppressed and exploited.
There are many sub plots in his stories. Sometimes I wondered if there
were too many. However, I dont doubt that the kinds of villains that
he writes about do unfortunately exist.
