Book Review: The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson
4 Stars , Fiction / August 11, 2010

The third book of the series if finely crafted much like the first.  Larsson does a skillful job at interlacing between the good and the bad, the intelligence agencies, the police and the media.  While the first book was about corporate takedowns, the second about the sex traffickers this one is more of a courtroom drama.  .There are still many elements which the first two books incorporate: Salander and Blomkovist punish their enemi...
