Book Summary

Salander is plotting her revenge - against the man who tried to kill her, and against the government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life. But it is not going to be a straightforward campaign. After taking a bullet to the head, Salander is under close supervision in Intensive Care, and is set to face trial for three murders and one attempted murder on her eventual release. With the help of journalist Mikael Blomkvist and his researchers at Millennium magazine, Salander must not only prove her innocence, but identify and denounce the corrupt politicians that have allowed the vulnerable to become victims of abuse and violence. Once a victim herself, Salander is now ready to fight back.

Book Review

The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest is the final installment of the Millennium Trilogy that continues Lisbeth Salander’s journey from the second book. She finally came face to face with her own past. The third part of this book is a real page-turner and impossible to put down.

Larsson’s pacing, information (especially about the Amazons), the trial and the revenge was flawlessly plotted and laid out – I cherished every single moment of it. The characters were just amazing as the previous two books, and new characters were introduced. Annika played a very important role in this book and I loved her just as much as I loved Lisbeth. The sense of vindication was fulfilling – FINALLY, they all got what they deserve.

Lisbeth Salander’s search for justice and truth was an inspiration for the young and abused women who seemed to have lost hope.

To sum things up, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest is exhilarating. The twists were amazing, the humor wasn't out of place and sprouts at the right time. Lisbeth Salander is truly one of the best heroines in fiction history. I so love her. I couldn't put down this book - I didn't want to. It's an amazing read! (And, you need to read the second book first…)
