The authorStieg Larsson (born August 15, 1954 in Skelleftehamn, Sweden as Karl Stig-Erland Larsson) was a Swedish journalist and writer who passed away in 2004. As a journalist and editor of the magazine Expo, Larsson was active in documenting and exposing Swedish extreme right and racist organizations. When he died at the age of 50, Larsson left three unpublished thrillers and unfinished manuscripts for more. The first three books (Män som hatar kvinnor/The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Flickan Som Lekte Med Elden/The Girl Who Played With Fire, and Luftslottet som sprängdes/The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest) have since been printed as the Millenium series. These books are all bestsellers in Sweden and in several other countries, including the United States. The synopsisLisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge—against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.Once upon a time, she was a victim. Now Salander is fighting back. The reviewThis book is the third in the Millenium series and gives all the answers. There are some new players but most have been there trough all three books. Some characters still surprise you though. I feel this book is a worthy end to the trilogy it has Cluedo things innit and some of the action which makes it a intriguing read. If you are a crime novel reader and ignored these books cause you had the feeling they where not your style and you are emotionally able to deal with the sever abuse that sometimes pops up you should read these books.
