Title: The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest
Author: Stieg Larsson
Just like the first two books in this amazing trilogy, I loved the final installment of Lisbeth Salandar and Mikael Blomkvist's saga. The story is a mix of adventure and mystery with a whole lot of government conspiracy and self righteous officials mixed in. After being severely wounded at the end of book two, Salandar clings to life while Blomkvist fights for her freedom. Not only does this story follow Blomkvist through his investigation but we get a deeper look at the rest of the Millennium staff, and Armansky and his private security crew, among other good guys. Cortez digs up dirt on one of the SMP board members that makes Berger seriously reconsider her recent career move while she is fighting a personal battle with a stalker.
