This is the third in the Millenium series. While my review does not contain spoilers for this book, it may for the previous books.

The third, and final, chapter of this trilogy centers around Lisbeth’s trial. Picking up mere minutes after the previous book ends, Lisbeth is transported to the hospital to recover from her injuries. She is charged with attempted murder (among other things). Mikael and her other friends set out to save her from being locked up again.

I found this concluding book to less of a draw then the previous ones. I thoroughly enjoyed the law/courtroom aspect, but found myself tuning out during all the history lessons. I don’t think they contributed to the story at all, except to make it longer.

I love the develop of Lisbeth’s character over the course of the series. You can see a slow but steady growth in her maturity and self confidence.

I’m glad I finished the series. I’m satisfied with how everything turned out. But I doubt I’ll read it again.

  1. I have read the first two in this series and thought they were interesting and have been waiting for the final third installment until the price goes down – I guess I am in your boat!
