I've read a lot of books this year, this one, so far, is the best I've read. Masterful, flowing text. A story line that never let's go. Characters we all know and are rooting for, as well as the baddies you just know will get their due. This story picks up where "Playing With Fire" leaves off and answers many questions but is capable of being a stand-alone book as well, although I would strongly advise any new Larsson reader to start with Book Number One, "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo." The first two illustrate clearly how capable Lisbeth Salander is, kicking butt while solving difficult math theorem's in her head...simultaneously. In this, the last of the trilogy, she spends the majority of the book recuperating (and yes, of course, plotting) while being cut off, denied visitors for her safety, after brain surgery lands her in Intensive Care. If you recall from "Playing With Fire," she was in the fight of her life with her father and his "associates." Blomkvist & Co. of course, have uncovered all kinds of dirty secrets that are very far reaching, high too, all the way to the top. Everywhere he turns danger lurks, more than one person wants him shut down, one way or another. No one knows who to trust, the secrets are so explosive just knowing them puts you at risk. Larrson does an incredible job keeping control of all these threads weaving them in and out, drawing you in, moving everybody along to the finish after a very long ride that was well worth the time. Loved It!
