The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest

Resolution. Stieg Larsson completed the third novel in the Lisbeth Salander trilogy, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, by lifting the darkness from the middle novel, and pulling all the pieces together by the end of this 600 page installment. I don’t know how the language flows in the original Swedish, but this English version provides fine dialogue throughout, and a narrative flow that made pages fly by a dozen or more at a time, as I wanted to bring this story to its end. I found the resolution very satisfying, and realized at the end that with Larsson’s death, I will miss Salander, and remember her as one of the most memorable characters in modern fiction.

Rating: Four-star (Highly Recommended)
