really liked it

This novel begins immediately after The Girl Who Played with Fire. Lisbeth Salander is in the hospital and recovering from the gunshot to the head that could have killed her and things are beginning to unravel. Blomkvist is doing what he does best, sleeping around and investingating corruption. The police are become more embroilled in the events that placed Lisbeth in the hospital. I can't say too much about the novel without giving it away because it so intertwined with the previous installment. Suffice it to say that this Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has several dragons to slay. The running theme of Amazon warriors and women in battle that pops up now and then throughout the story rings true not only for Lisbeth, but Blomkvist's sister who agrees to represent Libeth as her lawyer, several female police officers/investigators/security types, and Erika Berger as she leaves Millineum to pursue her career in an "all boys club" failing news publication. An epic conclusion to an epic story.
