Stieg Larsson
Volume III of the Millennium Triology

The Girl hits back: The Girl who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest, the highly anticipated final volume in the Millennium Trilogy, will have an embargoed special release date of 1 October 2009.

Lisbeth Salander is plotting her revenge – against the men who tried to kill her, and against the government institutions that nearly destroyed her life. But it is not going to be a straightforward campaign. After taking a bullet to the head, Salander is under close
supervision in Intensive Care, and is set to face trial for three murders and one attempted murder on her eventual release.

With the help of journalist Mikael Blomkvist from Millennium Magazine, Salander must not only
prove her innocence, but identify and denounce the corrupt politicians that have allowed the vulnerable to become victims of abuse and violence. Once a victim herself, Salander is ready
to fight back.

The Millennium Trilogy was the publishing sensation of 2008 and 2009 and has sold more than
13 million copies worldwide. This final volume of the Trilogy is the culmination of one of the most mesmerising fictional achievements of our time.

Stieg Larsson was the founder and editor-in-chief of the Swedish anti-racist magazine Expo. He died in 2004, soon after delivering the manuscripts for the novels that are the Millennium Trilogy. Tragically, he did not live to enjoy the phenomenon that his work has become.
