My family gave up on seeing me when I was reading these books. I read the entire series in a week. A friend had given me The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo several years ago and I had put off reading it because she said it was "really, really good." She was right, and as I feared, I became obsessed once I began it, which is why I waited until I retired to read it.
The book that's the subject of this review is the final book (other than a non-Larsson) in the series. It does not disappoint. If you have read the other two, you'll definitely want to read this last one. It's hard to put it down once you start, so give yourself some free time to immerse yourself in it.
The main plot in book #2 revolves around human sex trafficking. Three people are murdered and Lizbeth is the prime suspect. Two of the murder victims were "good guys", and one was most certainly not. If the reader can stomach the graphic violence in parts of the book, it is an interesting and enjoyable read. I guess what makes these books so satisfying is that the bad guys eventually get what's coming to them.
I would venture a guess that anyone who gets through books #1 & 2 will want to move on to #3. At least I do. I give this book 4 stars.
There are also a couple of movies i.e. if you don't know already.
The eponymous "Girl" is probably the most interesting female character since Margaret Mitchell's Scarlet O'Hara, or, maybe one or two of Jane Austin's.
The plot is riveting and wide ranging, the action hilariously bloodcurdling and the different characters support the narrative well.
This is part III of the trilogy. Its a good read, but start with the "Dragon Tattoo" to get off on the right right track.
The trilogy is a superb achievement by the late author and deserves your attention. You will not be disappointed.
I bought the three books on Kindle some time ago and reread the third just the other day.
Magic if you are going on a relaxing beach holiday.
