Lisbeth Salander--the heart of Larsson's two previous novels--is under close supervision in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She's fighting for her life in more ways than one: when she's well enough, she'll stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will have to prove her innocence, and to identify the corrupt politicians who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse. And, on her own, she will plot her revenge--against the man who tried to kill her and the government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life. Once upon a time, she was a victim. Now Lisbeth Salander is ready to fight back. "From the Hardcover edition."

I wandered into the first of Larsson's novels and read all three with increasing interest. The theme of violence against females is worked over hard and effectively. Don't let the graphic description divert attention from the heart of the message. The story line is easy enough to follow but a lack of familiarity with the geography of the settings slows the pace some. Of course I am now far more knowledgeable with Sweden's governing principles and the sanctity of their press than before. These are compelling, entertaining and worthwhile reads once you get started.

This is an absolutely fantastic read. Read the entire series and weep that the author will write no more books.

Fascinating story and character!
I don't often get so intrigued by a series story as I did with Stieg Larsson's. I am so glad they have started the movies, and I hope they make the whole series into movies. The characters are so fascinating and like no others I have read.
