Book Description

Sept. 6 2011
As The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest opens, Lisbeth Salander—the heart and soul of Larsson's two previous novels—is under close supervision in the intensive care unit of a provincial Swedish city hospital. And she's fighting for her life in more ways than one: when she's well enough, she'll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for a triple murder. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will have to prove her innocence, and identify and denounce the corrupt politicians who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to become victims of abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot her revenge—against the man who tried to kill her, and the government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.

Once upon a time, she was a victim. Now, Lisbeth Salander is ready to fight back.

Product Description

From Amazon

As the finale to Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is not content to merely match the adrenaline-charged pace that made international bestsellers out of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire. Instead, it roars with an explosive storyline that blows the doors off the series and announces that the very best has been saved for last. A familiar evil lies in wait for Lisbeth Salander, but this time, she must do more than confront the miscreants of her past--she must destroy them. Much to her chagrin, survival requires her to place a great deal of faith in journalist Mikael Blomkvist and trust his judgment when the stakes are highest. To reveal more of the plot would be criminal, as Larsson's mastery of the unexpected is why millions have fallen hard for his work. But rest assured that the odds are again stacked, the challenges personal, and the action fraught with neck-snapping revelations in this snarling conclusion to a thrilling triad. This closing chapter to The Girl's pursuit of justice is guaranteed to leave readers both satisfied and saddened once the final page has been turned. --Dave Callanan --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.


'The completion of the trilogy confirms Larsson as one of the great talents of contemporary crime fiction' Joan Smith, Sunday Times. 'A strong and satisfying conclusion to a massively ambitious, richly textured trilogy' Barry Forshaw, Daily Express. 'Fans will not be disappointed; this another roller-coaster ride that keeps you reading far too late into the night' Andrew Neather, Evening Standard.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's over, but what a trip!! Feb. 6 2010
I cheated. I could not wait. I went to Amazon.UK and the book was in my hands 4 days later. A first class ending to a wonderful debut and unfortunate end. If I had the chance to write only 3 books I would hope they would be of this calibre. I can not express myself well enough to tweek your interest. Simply stated this is the best of the three. When this book hits these shores it will soar. The plot is involved, the characters are well developed and the conclusion is satisfying. It is well worth the time. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating Sept. 11 2011
By Toni Osborne TOP 100 REVIEWER
Book 3, in the Millennium trilogy

This series has captivated me from the start, not only that each instalment is a superior pager-turner that manages to draw you into the world of interesting characters it also delivers a story that is riveting and wholly engrossing. 'The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest' is complex, satisfying and clever.

The final instalment picks up where the second left off. Lisbeth is in hospital under arrest and fighting for her life in intensive care, while her father, two rooms from her, is being treated for his axe wound to the face. From the start, the story is so crammed with characters, plots and sub-plots it will take a book itself to summarize the main points only.

The author loves to takes us on many side trips such as exposing the dirty secrets of the Swedish Secret Service while Lisbeth recuperates from her injuries and contemplates her revenge while waiting for her day in court. The plotting can be convoluted and challenging at times and the wild ride continues with Blomqvist exposing Zalachenco and his contacts with the Swedish government. True to the author's style, he has our heads spinning one curve after another, an endless supply of highs and lows. The many minor characters can give the reader a case of information overload, however, the storyline neatly wraps up the fate of each major player including the fascinating heroine, Lisbeth Salander.

Regrettably this seems to be the end of the series. I will miss Mr. Larsson's contributions to the world of suspense novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the series. Jan. 30 2012
By V. Buttino TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Without a doubt, this was the best book of the series.

A classic battle between the good guys and the bad guys ensues in this tale of human rights gone horribly wrong. The only complaint I have about this third and final installment is the constant introduction of new characters on nearly every page. It was hard to keep up, but you must pay close attention because every character introduced lends something significant to the story.

Certain parts of the book (namely Salander's trial) had me sitting on the edge of my seat and biting my nails (something I haven't done since high school). I even found myself giggling and pumping my fist in the air at certain moments! What a way to end a pretty good series (I say "pretty good" because I wasn't a huge fan of the first novel or the second). Things really picked up in The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest and the book's conclusion was satisfying.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Girl who Kicked The Hornets Nest Sept. 27 2010
Not as good as the first two , which I absolutely loved . Introducing too many new characters and Very SLOW , Half way thru the book and still hoping it is going to get better . Read the first 2 in a few days , been working on this a few weeks . Lisbeth is not playing a big part in it so far . Disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Justice June 12 2010
By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
"I traverse the way of righteousness,
In the midst of the paths of justice," -- Proverbs 8:20

I assume that you know there are two earlier books in this trilogy, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire. If you didn't know that, read those books first.

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest deals with the consequences of the violent episode at the end of The Girl Who Played with Fire where Lisbeth Salander meets her father and brother. While that battle within the family would normally play itself out among those three, modern society isn't likely to permit that. Too many other agendas need to be served. This book recounts how those who want to take advantage of the situation face off against those who want to see justice done.

Along the way, you'll find yourself thinking long and hard about what doing justice means to someone who has been dealt as bad a hand by her family and government as Lisbeth Salander has been. Stieg Larsson clearly has that purpose in mind as he develops a resolution that's as much social commentary as it is a suspense story.

Lisbeth will continue to amaze you.

I found that story to be very intricate and complex. You may have to remind yourself from the earlier books who some of the characters are. Although it was rewarding in the end, a simpler, shorter story would have worked better for me. This book came across as though it could have used more structural editing, excising major plot lines.

Hang on the end and you'll be glad you did. Stieg Larsson's monumental work of imagination will leave you wishing he were around to write a fourth book in the series. Perhaps someone else will be asked to do so. I hate the thought of not reading about Lisbeth Salander as a character in new stories.

Great series! I must admit, though, that this was by far my least favorite of the three books. Don't get your hopes up too high.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bittersweet Classic Jan. 17 2010
I ordered this book via Amazon in the UK and was ecstatic to receive it at a very reasonable price SIX MONTHS before the North American release date! Although I thought the 1st book was a classic, the 2nd was a little over the top for believablility. HOWEVER - as a fellow reader pointed out, the 2nd and 3rd books are more like parts 1 and 2 of the same book and leads to a complex, engrossing and thoroughly satisfying end to this trilogy that I didn't want to see end. With the much too early demise of a wonderfully talented author, it's tough to think Lisbeth & Mikael have sailed into the sunset. But what a legacy! CHEERS!
