Well I manage to write the reviews of books I read out of order and in a rather haphazard fashion so this post should have preceded the last one never mind.
This is the third and final instalment of Stieg Larsson‘s epic trilogy that encompasses computer hacking state sanctioned  abuses of individuals that go to the heart of government. Larsson manages to combine a sweeping story involving all sorts agencies and yet keeps tabs on the personal with his main protagonists Blomqvist and the rather amazing heroine Lisbeth Salander. The tale is at the outer edges of believability but not outrageously so. The books have already been made into films in Sweden and fairly faithfully keep to the story. It is concerning to me that there is  hollywood version of the film on its way which will no doubt be dumbed down and the intrigue and originality of the story will most likely be lost.
Sadly this is the end of the series as the author passed away. This is a fitting conclusion to the story with most of the lose ends tied up rather nicely.
