For fans of the first two books in this trilogy, Steig Larsson’s imitable style once again prevails in this exciting crime thriller; this is the last in a brilliant series. The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest begins directly after the cliffhanger ending of The Girl Who Played With Fire. Lisbeth Salander, Larsson’s awesome female heroine plays a less active role in this book, acting as more of a catalyst for the action of the other characters. She’s still, however, one tough young woman who doesn’t hesitate to meter out her form of justice. In addition to the old familiar characters, like Berger and Blomkvist, Larsson introduces several new well crafted characters as he expands the plot to spotlight the Swedish political arena, offering some interesting details on the secret police and the inner level of government. After a slightly slow start, the pace does not let up. There’s plenty of sex, violence, computer hacking and for those who enjoy a more cerebral approach to things, a challenging court trial with Lisbeth in one corner and those who conspire against her in the other. Steig Larsson nicely wraps up all the loose ends and leaves you wishing for more. A must read for Steig Larsson’s fans and anyone who enjoys a good action thrillerBack.
