Warning: This is a review of the third book in the series, and may therefore contain spoilers from the first two books.

The third and final instalment in Stieg Larsson's brilliant Millennium trilogy, this book starts with Lisbeth Salander in critical condition with a bullet in her head. Meanwhile, Mikael Blomkvist struggles to prove her innocence, all while exposing the huge governmental conspiracy that has resulted in Lisbeth's rights being violated since she was a little girl.

I think this book is actually the best in the trilogy. As all the different threads that have been going on throughout the story start to come together, the conclusion is quite intense. A big chunk of this book is Lisbeth's trial, and it is epic. A lot of the time you don't know what's going on, what people's strategies are for the trial, etc., so it really keeps you on edge, and when Annika would whip out surprise defences for Lisbeth, I was alternating between laughing hysterically and saying "holy crap!". It's probably good that I didn't read this book in public too much...

5 stars!
