The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest – Stieg Larrsson

In this thrilling conclusion to what is dubbed the “Millennium Trilogy”, Stieg Larrson doesn’t miss a beat.

Since being released at the end of The Girl Who Played With Fire, it is already topping the bestselling lists alongside the previous 2 novels that have already been there for some time, and I don’t doubt for a second this will be there for a long time as well.

Lisbeth is in the hospital fighting for her life, after her father had shot her.

This book undoubtedly just as jam-packed with action, this one is just a bit different.  It focuses more on the political, police, and what their involvement is and how the case is all coming together.  There are those famous action scenes as the police with their ever so secret departments who are investigating other departments, there is also secrets that haven’t been revealed in the previous two novels.  There are a few more new characters that are introduced, as well as a conclusion that will (at least in my mind it had) think that there is another installment underway or has been written.

There has been speculation and hints that there is another manuscript floating around somewhere, but I digress, as far as I know, nothing else will be published.  There has been rumours scouring the globe about certain aspects of Stieg’s life before and after he had died of a massive heart attack.  I for one think it is just speculation and wouldn’t want to assume anything is for real until an announcement is made.

So, will Mikhail finally close the all of the gaps in how he found the information, getting justice for Lisbeth?? Well, you will just have to go out and buy the book to find out.  Remember, I don’t post spoilers !   So, if you were absolutely absorbed in the 2 previous books and could not wait until this one was released, then take a breath, go to your favorite bookstore and pick up a copy.  You will be glad you did.

  1. I’m assuming there won’t be any more, and will be skeptical of anything that appears, but I also have a little bit of hope.

    I found Hornet’s Nest satisfying, although it got off to a slow start for me. I’m glad you enjoyed it!

    • I have read somewhere that there is a unfinished 4th manuscript lurking somewhere. I have faith that if there is, it will be published. But as strict as Sweden’s laws are pertaining to his assets after his death, I don’t know, there still seems to be quite a fight between the family and his fiancee
