I am choosing only a very few out of hundreds and thousands of so
Mario Vargas Llosa –
Exceptional… welcome to the immortality of fiction, Lisbeth Salander”

Kate Mosse, Guardian – 
“Larsson has produced a coup de foudre, a novel that is complex, satisfying, clever, moral… This is a grown-up novel for grown-up readers, who want something more than a quick fix and a car chase. And it’s why the Millennium trilogy is rightly a publishing phenomenon all over the world.”

Anthony Horowitz, Daily Telegraph –
“I was completely enthralled by The Girl WHo Kicked the Hornets’ Nest, the tense and almost apocalyptic conclusion to Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy.”

Nick Cohen, Observer
“As a just avenger, Lisbeth Salander is a worthy successor to Edmund Dantes in The Count of Monte Cristo, because Larsson was certain of the righteousness of her cause… tens of millions of readers all around the world agree.”

The whole story revolves around three main characters, viz. Mikael Blomkvist, Lisbeth Salander and Zalachenko There are many more contributing characters who plays a substantial role in the story.
Lisbeth Salander, an ex security analyst and exceptionally genius hacker. She has been admitted to hospital with a bullet in his head and is being madly chased by a monstrous murderer. She already has been alleged for killing a young couple in Stockholm and is guarded by police all around the hospital. She does not have any thing at help to prove her innocence.
Mikael Blomkvist has got a new lead of clues about some highly confidential top notch security information which hints towards a huge and well knitted corruption group. But he does not have the sound proof of the same. The only person he could reply upon in this matter is lying on a hospital bed with chronic injury in her head.

Will Mikael and Lisbeth be able to find the root of this highly foggy clandestine secret agency or group? Will Lisbeth be able to prove her innocence at last or he penalized back to the horrifying institution again by the law?

You want to know what happens to Lisbeth…. Go and pick up the book from the shelf and read it!
