Summary
Lisbeth Salander is in the intensive care unit of a provincial Swedish city hospital, fighting for her life in more ways than one: when she's well enough, she'll stand trial for a triple murder. While journalist Mikael Blomkvist helps to prove her innocence, Lisbeth plots her revenge against the man who tried to kill her, and the government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.
