This is the finale of the Millennium Trilogy. I don’t know how to review this book without revealing the plot, so this review is going to be brief.
This book picks up where “The Girl who Played with Fire” left off. Salander was now in a hospital, where she was treated for her life-threatening injuries. Because she was wanted for a triple murder, she was put under arrest and not allowed contact with anyone except the medical team treating her and her lawyer. Salander had to prepare for her defense while isolated from the rest of the world.
Mikael Blomkvist asked his sister, Annika, to be Salander’s lawyer, which proved to be challenging due to Salander’s policy of not talking to anyone in authority.
People in the Secret Section of Sapo knew that they were in danger. If Salander was not silenced, she would expose their blatant disregard of the law in order to protect Zalachenko.
While doing all they can to help Salander, both Annika’s and Mikael’s lives were threatened. Can they persuade Salander to trust them? The stake was high and important people had much to lose if the truth finally came out.
