Book Review: The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest – Stieg Larsson

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (Millennium, #3)
In the concluding volume of Stieg Larsson’s Millenium trilogy, Lisbeth Salander lies in critical condition in a Swedish hospital, a bullet in her head.

But she’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll stand trial for three murders.  With the help of Mikael Blomkvist, she’ll need to identify those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence.  And, on her own, she’ll seek revenge—against the man who tried to kill her and against the corrupt government institutions that nearly destroyed her life.

4/5 stars (really liked it)
I thought the first two books in the trilogy were really good but this is by far the best one.  I could not put the book down.  I love the writing style and how the author gives me so much information on characters.  People and stories that I would never thing would fit together do and it works.  I really liked the conclusion to this story and how things actually did wrap up.  Great book!
