The girl who kicked the hornet nest- Stieg Larsson

The girl who kicked the hornets nest, is the third part in Stieg Larsson's millenium trilogy. It continues the story of Lisbeth Salandar and Mikael Blomkvist and their battle with a secret group within the Swedish governement.

I really enjoyed the girl with the hornet's nest, however I thought it was a bit long winded and would have benifited from a good edit.

I recently found this website devoted to all things Stieg Larsson, its worth a look!
