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 Amazing! Feb. 1 2010
By Mshell
I ordered this book through the UK and received it shortly after Christmas. As previously reading the other two I knew that this was going to be a bittersweet read. The story takes off right where the first one left off, and I must say the story of Salander is not only enlightening but heartbreaking.

I am saddened that this Mr. Larsson passed away and we will not be able to continue the wonderful adventure's of Salander and Blomkvist.

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!

2.0 out of 5 stars Least favourite of the series Aug. 10 2010
I cannot agree with the rave reviews that this book is receiving. In my opinion, it was the worst in the series, and I had to force myself to read it. I could've taken a red pen to much of it, and eliminated at least 200 pages, if not more. There is so much superfluous material in this book, as well as the first 2 books, that they could've been cut down into 2 books, as opposed to 3.

This book is mainly wrap-up of the events that occured in the 2nd book, and the ending is so predictable, that it felt pointless to push through all of the useless Swedish names and places (which were extremely difficult to keep track of). I felt that Salander alienated herself even more, especially while she was on trial for her crimes, and instead of liking her more, I couldn't wait for the book to end so I didn't have to read any more of her ridiculous shenanigans, about the limited amount of food she eats (Billy's Pan Pizza anyone?), her trips around Sweden on public transit, or her endless pouting and doom & gloom.

I thought this book ended the series on a very low note, instead of the high that resulted from the first book. I disagree that it's one of the best series--I'm still giving that title to Harry Potter.

5.0 out of 5 stars PERSONALLY, I PITY THE HORNETS May 22 2010
If the THE COMPLETE SHERLOCK HOLMES marked my childhood and THE LORD OF THE RINGS is the most memorable from my early teen years, THE MILLENIUM Trilogy is the one I shall remember from my mid-thirties. And this book was a fitting conclusion to the series.

Lisbeth Salander is bedridden, recovering from a gunshot to the head. She is isolated from all her friends and the world whereas her enemies amass their forces to fall upon her fragile existence. In the same ICU, only a few meters away, lies her biological father and nemesis. Not only does he recover faster but, once more, he seems about to slither out of trouble. No matter, anyone who underestimates Lisbeth is doing this at his own risk.
The last 250 pages of this book will simply blow you away.

For a book originally written in Swedish, I have to mention the superb job done by the translator, Reg Keeland. The language flows naturally, never trapped in awkward phrase structures, whereas the Swedish names of places and organizations remind the reader to mind the culture gap.

Personally, I found the second book (The Girl Who Played with Fire) the best of the three. No matter though, they were all masterpieces. You do not have to read them in sequence to enjoy each book but I would suggest it only to get the most out of them. With Larsson's untimely death these three books are all we are ever going to have.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a co-enabler. I admit it. I bought my husband this book and haven't seen him for two days since he started to read, let me rephrase that...since he started to DEVOUR this book.

'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' was a Christmas gift, followed by Playing with Fire for last Father's Day. You'd think I'd learn.

I can't say if the book is any good as I haven't had a chance to touch it! But the smile on my hubby's face and the way he is turning the pages and staying up late, tells me that this book is a home run at the end of the Trilogy.

4.0 out of 5 stars The final sting June 13 2010
For those addicted to Stieg Larsson's work, there is a bitter sweetness to reading this book. We know that this was the last, as his early death meant that here will be no more. Or will his long time partner finish the fourth manuscript, a work in progress when he died?
The Hornets Nest is a tad overlong. In Dickensian style it ties up many of the loose ends and (with sex volence and computer hacking) it brings the arc of Salander's story to a satisfying conclusion. But there are still some tantalising threads that I would love to see unravelled.. What about that twin?
Larsonnites can live in hope that, like Douglas Adams, there may be a fourth book in the trilogy.

Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was the best one. Plot-driven fiction can get a little flat after a few books. Fast-paced story, albeit not literature by any stretch. Beach read.
