Praise

“A heart-stopping showdown showcases . . . one of crime fiction’s most unforgettable characters.” —People
 
“Gripping. . . . Lisbeth Salander  . . . is one of the most original characters in a thriller to come along in a while.”—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
 
“Larsson’s vivid characters, the depth of detail across three books, the powerfully imaginative plot, and the sheer verve of the writing make the trilogy a masterpiece of the genre.”—The Economist
  
“The literary equivalent of a caffeine rush. . . . Larsson was one of those rare writers who could keep you up until 3 a.m. and then make you want to rush home the next night to do it again.” —Newsweek
 
“Salander is someone you will never forget. . . . Anyone who enjoys grounding their imaginations in hundreds . . . of exciting pages about the way we live now ought to take advantage of this trilogy.” —Chicago Tribune

“The pages fly. . . . The pulse quickens.” —The Boston Globe
 
“A wild, careening ride.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer
 
“The action is wham-bam from the start. . . . [with] an eye-popping surprise ending.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Fully lives up to the excellence of the previous two and  . . . brings the saga to a satisfactory conclusion. . . . A modern masterpiece.” —The Washington Post Book World
 
“Satisfying. . . . [Lisbeth Salander] bursts off the page, a vibrant, forcefully ‘real’ character.”—The Plain Dealer
 
“Enough twists to keep even the most astute reader guessing.” —The Denver Post
 
Complex, satisfying, clever, moral . . . This is a grown-up novel for grown-up readers, who want something more than a quick fix and a car chase.” —The Guardian (London)
 
“An old-fashioned, well-paced political thriller with its roots in Swedish history and a cast of interesting and colorful characters.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
 
“Reading Stieg Larsson produces a kind of rush—rather like a strong cup of coffee.” —The New York Times Book Review
 
“Salander herself is a magnificent creation: a feminist avenging angel.” —Irish Independent
 
“Relentlessly exciting. . . . A fitting ending to an outstanding crime trilogy. Larsson deserves every scrap of his reputation as a master storyteller.” —Time Out London

“Exhilarating. . . . Larsson’s was an undeniably powerful voice in crime fiction that will be sorely missed.” —Publishers Weekly
