TITLE: THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNESTS' NEST
AUTHOR: STIEG LARSSON
Details: no. 3 Millennium Trilogy
This is the book that pulls all the threads of the two previous books together, and does so very well.
The story starts with Lisbeth Salander fighting for her life in a hospital while those who see her as a danger to the secrets they are trying to keep hidden assemble in an effort to keep her quiet and locked away.
At the same time Mickael Blomkvist and the team from Millennium Magazine are working hard to get the bottom of it all, save Lisbeth from a life in institutions and find and punish those responsible for her miserable life, aware that they are under constant surveillance.
It is hard to write more about this book without spoiling the story not only for those who haven't read this third book yet but also for those who haven't read the previous book(s). So, I'll limit myself to saying that this is in many ways like an old fashioned spy story with people from all sides trying to stay one step ahead of the others by all means possible.
There are an awful lot of players in this book which can get confusing at times, but does make perfect sense considering the time span the story covers and all the strands that have to come together.
This was a very satisfying read with a very unique and fascinating main character in Lisbeth. Now that I have finished reading the trilogy I can only be sorry that there won't be any other books by Larrson. The world lost a great thriller writer when he died so prematurely.
