This is the third and final installation in Stieg Larsson's "Dragon Tattoo" series.
In the first, I met Salander and Mikael.
In the second, I tried to figure out what to think of them.
It is in the third book that I made peace with Salander and Mikael, and in many ways they found some peace (or at least closure) themselves.
Because of events that transpired in The Girl Who Played With Fire, Salander is now in critical care, literally fighting for her life...both from her own injuries and from the man down the hall who's trying to off her.
More than anything, she is trying to regain her mental faculties and physical abilities because she has things to do and people to kill. Oh, Salander...
There's also the trivial matter of that pesky triple murder case in which Salander is the only suspect.
I liked this series quite a bit, but this wasn't my favorite book of the three. It tended to be a bit slower and lacked the "pow" factor that was so heavy in the other two. However, I did love that in this book, FINALLY Salander gains some control and the ability to make some choices in what was to happen to her.
