The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest (Millennium #3) by Stieg Larsson

Summary from

In the concluding volume of Stieg Larsson's Millennium 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 killer her and against the corrupt government institutions that nearly destroyed her life

My Comments :

This is the final book of the Trilogy of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I have read that book and The Girl Would Played with Fire earlier on when a friend lend it to me.

Was waiting to get this final book at a low price but unfortunately the price was still quite high at this time. Hence I was more than delighted when I found this book at Subang Jaya Book Exchange Programme a month ago. A kind soul had donated more than 150 books for the programme and most of it were almost brand new.

I found that this final book was a it slow in the beginning as the author introducted many characters into the story. It was kinda hard to keep track of who is who and how each of them are related. But once I got through it, I started to enjoy the read pretty much

Although many characters were introduced and the many sub-plot, am glad to noted that the author controlled the flow story remarkably well.

Frankly, am a bit miffed that Mikael Blomkvist seems to get the girl every time. Am amazed that Erika’s husband doesn’t mind that she have a lover and even called him to tell him that she won’t be home as she would be spending the night with Blomkvist

I love the part about Erika and her time at SMP. It was gripping.

I must say that I enjoyed the trilogy very much and happy how well the author concluded the story in the end.

Am giving it 5 stars.

  1. I've heard so much about this trilogy, about the author, his mysterious death...but still haven't read the books yet. Not sure if I want to buy the hard copy or download to my Kindle. I still have other books at home to read first.

    Wow, I've only just heard of the Subang Jaya book exchange programme! Sounds really good...if only a similar one could be started in Penang. :)
