The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest
Awhile back we ordered the third and unfortunately last book by Stieg Larsson, "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest". A great Swedish author who met his rather early death after beginning his fourth book, Stieg Larsson will be sorely missed by Mary and I and the rest of his adoring fans.
This book, as does the prior two, continues the story of Lizbeth Salander, an unlikely heroine if ever there was one. Tattooed, diminutive and antisocial, most readers, I think, would initially dislike her or be repelled by her physical non attributes. However, after completing the first few chapters of the first book "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo", you simply must read what comes next. We actually took the unusual step with the second and third books of ordering them early through Powells and getting them from the U.K. as you see, the third comes out in the states in July 2010 and we just couldn't wait.
