The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
If and when Lisbeth Salander recovers, she'll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge--against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.

Loved the book, loved the movie (the Swedish version, that is)!

[Of course, Stieg wrote fantasy in that in the final analysis, the Swedish national police (SAPO) were overall uncorrupted, while we know, especially from recent events, that such is most definitely not the case in real life!]

This book ties up all the loose ends, and although it spends most of the time setting up for the grand finale, there are still several redeeming sequences throughout that make it a good read. Definitely worth the read.

My least favorite of the three, but still a very good read.

This book was really great. It was such a good conclusion to the series! Not as suspenseful as the other two, but if you read all three together than this is a nice cool down from the other two.

This book was strangely flat compared to the first two.

Lisbeth Salander spends most of the book off-stage, and this book spends most of the time discussing bureaucratic politics rather than discovering 'whodunit'.

Great way to finish the Millenium trilogy, but I wish there were more!

I think I liked this one the best of the three - ties it all together, although Lisbeth becomes a little too likeable during her recovery...
