As a continuation of the Lisbeth Salander story, the third book does a beautiful job of wrapping up everything introduced in The Girl Who Played With Fire. A complete ending of Dag's murder, the Zalachenko mystery, and the breach of constitutional rights for Lisbeth.

This third installment of the trilogy picks up right where the second book leaves off, with Lisbeth being rushed to the hospital with a bullet in her head. She is in custody for a lot of crimes, the worst of which is attempted manslaughter on her father, Zalachenko, who is rushed to the hospital with axe cuts on his face. But Mikael Blomkvist is there, once again, to dig up the truth.

It is a great conclusion to the second book and the triology itself, although there is speculation as to whether, sometime in the future, Eva Gabrielsson will finish and publish Larsson's intended 4th book in the Lisbeth Salander series.

I listened to the audiobook my second time reading it, and I must say, Simon Vance does a FANTASTIC job at making the text come to life. So, if you have problems getting through all of the details of this series, I would definitely recommend the audio books. They are fantastic!
