Originally published: 2017

Format: E-book

Plot from GoodReads:

The girl with the dragon tattoo does not forgive.

Salander is confined to the secure unit of a women’s prison, with violence all around her, but for a hacker of her skills, there are no boundaries.

She gives Mikael Blomkvist a lead that could give him an important exposé for Millennium magazine, an investigation into a sinister experiment that may also unlock the mystery of her harrowing childhood.

The dragon inked into Salander’s back is a constant reminder of her pledge to fight the injustice she finds on every side, and she will discover the truth, whatever the cost.


The different point of views enriched the story and strengthen the suspense for the plots. There are many characters in this book to keep tracked of but all of them are intertwined in one way or another.

There are so many multi-layered yet vulnerable characters, and one of them is Lisbeth. Yes, she’s a strong character but there is much vulnerability in her all the same.

I loved the reveal about her main tattoo, the one she is known for, and it only took a few books for the massive reveal.

I just love how everyone always underestimates her because of her demeanour and the way that she looks, it’s always that unexpected element that comes packed with a punch. Spoiler, but not really – she always kicks ass!

I loved the switch of information between the old and new plots that gave insight to previous events to create understanding to how the all the stories come together. The few reminders were perfectly placed in the plots.

The book contained less hacking, which is some change, and less graphic violence, but it was brilliant nonetheless.


This book contained multiple sub-plots that all somewhere flowed into the main one and with all the details to take in, don’t read the book if you aren’t going to be fully commited.

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 3.79 on GoodReads. I gave it a 5.
