Originally published in Sweden as Luftslottet som sprängdes by Norstedts, Stockholm, in 2007.
Sequel to: The girl who played with fire.
If and when Lisbeth Salander recovers, she'll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge--against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.
It was for sure a fitting end to the trilogy. While I'm sad that the adventures of Lisbeth and Blomkvist won't continue in print form, I'm glad it doesn't have a chance to be too watered down like some neverending series can end up. (As of this writing, that is. I won't mention the unfinished partial future books sitting on the late Stieg Larsson's laptop.)
