Amazon Best Books of the Month, May 2010 As the finale to Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is not content to merely match the adrenaline-charged pace that made international bestsellers out of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire. Instead, it roars with an explosive storyline that blows the doors off the series and announces that the very best has been saved for last. A familiar evil lies in wait for Lisbeth Salander, but this time, she must do more than confront the miscreants of her past; she must destroy them. Much to her chagrin, survival requires her to place a great deal of faith in journalist Mikael Blomkvist and trust his judgment when the stakes are highest. To reveal more of the plot would be criminal, as Larsson's mastery of the unexpected is why millions have fallen hard for his work. But rest assured that the odds are again stacked, the challenges personal, and the action fraught with neck-snapping revelations in this snarling conclusion to a thrilling triad. This closing chapter to The Girl's pursuit of justice is guaranteed to leave readers both satisfied and saddened once the final page has been turned. --Dave Callanan --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
From Publishers Weekly
The exhilarating conclusion to bestseller Larsson's Millennium trilogy (after The Girl Who Played with Fire) finds Lisbeth Salander, the brilliant computer hacker who was shot in the head in the final pages of Fire, alive, though still the prime suspect in three murders in Stockholm. While she convalesces under armed guard, journalist Mikael Blomkvist works to unravel the decades-old coverup surrounding the man who shot Salander: her father, Alexander Zalachenko, a Soviet intelligence defector and longtime secret asset to Säpo, Sweden's security police. Estranged throughout Fire, Blomkvist and Salander communicate primarily online, but their lack of physical interaction in no way diminishes the intensity of their unconventional relationship. Though Larsson (1954–2004) tends toward narrative excess, his was an undeniably powerful voice in crime fiction that will be sorely missed. 500,000 first printing. (May)

Perhaps it has been far too long since I've read anything other than quick fun fantasy adventure fiction. By the time I had finished reading this I found that it was a very interesting and entertaining book and I'm glad that I didn't give up on it. So now it's on to the next book in the set.
We hear about Blomkvist and the team at Millenium who must investigate the crime. While the names can be a bit difficult to remember, it is interesting reading. Larsson gives a lot of background information that helps the reader to understand the various roles that the people have in the investigation.
Lisbeth Salander plays a major role in the book; we learn about her idiosyncrasies and learns more about her, as she is suspected of killing the three persons. But it is also interesting to follow the investigation at Millenium, and in particular the role that Mikael Blomkvist plays in the story.
"The Girl Who Played With Fire" is an excellent book by Stieg Larsson, and in my opinion better than the preceding book in the trilogy, "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo". The ending is propably the best part, so if you feel that the book is a bit long, don't give up; you have the best and most exciting part of the book to look forward to.
