It is only right that a best-selling novel series about an unstoppable computer-hacker assassin should go out with a bang. In "The Girl Who Lived Twice", hitting bookstore shelves in odd countries this month, Swedish crime writer Stieg Larsson's antiheroine Lisbeth Salander is back for a high-paced final installment of the "Millennium" saga. The last in the series -- which kicked off in with "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" -- is a tale of political scandal, death, power games, and lashings of Nordic noir. It wraps up a six-part, best-selling social commentary on contemporary Sweden, the threat of technology to individual liberties, and violence against women. For the finale, Salander is in Moscow to settle a long-running feud with evil twin sister Camilla, before becoming embroiled in a cat-and-mouse chase with Russian gangsters. Her sidekick is Mikael Blomkvist, a journalist who calls on Salander to help trace the identity of a homeless man whose last words pointed to damaging secrets at the highest levels of government.
