This is the third and last book of the Millennium series by Stieg Larsson. For me, one of the more interesting things about Larsson's writing style is that he writes page after page of the mundane and ends up with an exciting book. A good editor could have shortened the book by over 100 pages without taking out anything of importance, and in the end speeding the action up considerably - but would that tight, fast story have the same impact as this story of how government secrets affect day to day normalcy.

The story picks up within minutes of the end of The Girl Who Played with Fire, with Lisbeth on a helicopter to the hospital. The story then follows the investigations by Blomkvist, the police, the Prosecutor, the SIS (secret police), and the Constitutional Police, as each of them investigate different, converging aspects of the case up to and thru Salander's trial. Of course in the end, the good guys win and the bad guys lose, and everything is ready for, the never to come, book four. A very good read indeed.
