Book Review

(by- Linda )

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. He spotlights the Swedish political arena, offering some exciting 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, and computer hacking. There is a challenging court trial for those who enjoy a more cerebral approach to things. Lisbeth is in one corner, and those who conspire against her are in the other. Steig Larsson 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 thriller
