The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest (Millennium #3)
by Stieg Larsson

(Kindle Edition)

The exhilarating conclusion to bestseller Larsson's Millennium trilogy (after The Girl Who Played with Fire) finds Lisbeth Salander, the brilliant computer hacker who was shot in the head in the final pages of Fire, alive, though still the prime suspect in three murders in Stockholm. While she convalesces under armed guard, journalist Mikael Blomkvist works to unravel the decades-old cover-up surrounding the man who shot Salander: her father, Alexander Zalachenko, a Soviet intelligence defector and longtime secret asset to Säpo, Sweden's security police. Estranged throughout Fire, Blomkvist and Salander communicate primarily online, but their lack of physical interaction in no way diminishes the intensity of their unconventional relationship.

I enjoyed the Millennium trilogy, my favorite is still the second book in the series. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest was the least of my favorites only because the author spent more time explaining the political history which provided the background for the trilogy and the plot didn’t move along as it did in the prior books and I also found some of the chapters quite boring. The best part of the book by far is the ending, but also disappointing because of Larsson's untimely death, I’m going to miss Lisbeth Salander.


  1. It has been so long since I read Catcher...high school...and I hated it! Don't really remember much about it other than I didn't like it 35 some years ago as a teenager...maybe as a gwamma I would have a different perspective...! Haven't read the other ones.

  2. I read Catcher in the Rye probably 40 years ago and I enjoyed it so much that I bought 2 of his other books and started reading them but never finished them. I LOVE To Kill a Mockingbird. Loved the book. Loved the movie. I'm reading a book about Paul Revere right now. I've enjoyed it so far, mostly.
