The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
(My Amazon.com review, all my reviews)
Lisbeth Salander rises from the bed to avenge her enemies, with help from the usual suspects. A fast-paced ending to the saga.

Lisbeth Salander is in a hospital bed, recovering from being shot in the head, shoulder, and hip. While waiting to be charged with attempted murder, and in all likelihood also facing the prospect of being declared a mental nutcase and locked away for the rest of her life. Which of course, is what the Zalachenko club wants. Blomkvist and co of course are not going to have anything to do with it, and set about trying to uncover the details of this nefarious plot, without having access to Lisbeth Salander, who, of course, is lying in a hospital bed, with no access to any phone, computer, or the internet. Or is she? Berger is off to the Swedish Morning Post as editor-in-chief, where she has her hands full with a tough-to-handle news editor and a possible stalker. Blomkvist's sister is a lawyer, and has the unenviable task of getting Salander to open up to her, which as we all know, is not exactly a walk in the park. The Zalachenko club is not playing fair, of course not, in making sure that evidence is destroyed, witnesses silenced, and testimony prepared to send Salander off to prison. And several other subplots that intertwine to give the reader a rip-rocking thriller.

This third book moves at a much faster pace than the second book, and is quite unputdownable. We know the characters, and there are really no new twists introduced here, but this is still one heck of a novel.

One can only wonder what more exciting stuff Stieg Larsson would have dished out had he still been alive.
