The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest   
The final book of Larsson’s trilogy is fast-paced and thrilling.  The book continues where the Girl Who Played with Fire left off.  We find Lisbeth in a hospital, shot in the head and accused of multiple murders.  Our favorite hacker is without devices to help prove her innocence.  Mikael Blomkvist sets out to aid her and help clear the charges against Lisbeth.  Many of the characters, who were an ally of Lisabeth’s during the first two books, play a part in helping unravel the mystery.  The mystery involves many components including a secret agency, top ranking officials in the government, and Lisbeth’s father who was a Soviet defector.  The ending is bitter-sweet, knowing that we will never see Larsson’s memorable characters again.
