The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest

It should come as no surprise that I had to rush into the store and get a copy of Stieg Larsson’s third novel to the Millennium series, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest.  I have been frantically reading it all day, and loving it.  Larsson doesn’t waste any time getting you back into the story, it literally picks up five minutes after the second book.  The third book seems to be focusing on getting Lisbeth out of her legal problems, and I don’t think this will be an easy task to complete.  It does seem that Blomkvist has a plan though, well at least he keeps telling people he has a plan.  This book is also giving you more background information on the Swedish governmental and legal  systems, which has been fascinating to read about.  Their legal system works similar to the United States, but some of the differences make it much harder to prove corruption or even if a person is innocent.  I don’t think this book will be quite as action packed as The Girl Who Played With Fire, but I am sure Lisbeth will still manage to surprise us.  All and all, I feel like this will wrap-up the trilogy nicely, and I can’t wait to get back home to read.  I have been instructed to call one of my co-workers the instant I have finished so we can discuss it, evidently waiting until tomorrow is too long of a wait.
