Summary

The third instalment of the Millennium Trilogy - which has now sold more than 26 million copies worldwide.
Salander is plotting her revenge – against the man who tried to kill her, and againstthe government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life. But it is not going to be a straightforward campaign. After taking a bullet to the head, Salander is under close supervision in Intensive Care, and is set to face trial for three murders and one attempted murder on her eventual release.
With the help of journalist Mikael Blomkvist and his researchers at Millennium magazine, Salander must not only prove her innocence, but identify and denounce the corrupt politicians that have allowed the vulnerable to become victims of abuse and violence. Once a victim herself, Salander is now ready to fight back.

Critic reviews

“Larsson has produced a coup de foudre, a novel that is complex, satisfying, clever, moral . . . This is a grown-up novel for grown-up readers, who want something more than a quick fix and a car chase. And it’s why the Millennium trilogy is rightly a publishing phenomenon all over the world.” (Kate Mosse, The Guardian)
“Solves the mysteries set up in the first two novels and explains how Salander became what she is . . . confirms Larsson as one of the great talents of contemporary crime fiction.” (Joan Smith, Sunday Times)
“So this is it. The final instalment in Stieg Larsson’s enthralling Millennium crime trilogy . . . If you’re a fan of the first two, you won’t be disappointed by the stunning ending. If you haven’t a clue about all the fuss, buy all three, clear a weekend and savour a master storyteller at work.” News of the World
“Larsson’s work is original, inventive, shocking, disturbing and challenging . . . [he has] brought a much-needed freshness into the world of crime fiction.” Marcel Berlins, The Times“I was completely enthralled by The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest, the tense and almost apocalyptic conclusion to Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy.” (Anthony Horowitz, Daily Telegraph)

Makes you want to drive to India!

The whole "The Girl..." series is very very absorbing. I lost track of time and wait in the garage for a pause to start for tomorrow. There are same issues not settle through the series, you have an episode here and there leads you to nowhere, but never the less it makes driving my favourite pass time!

Interesting, but not the best of the three

I enjoyed listening to the abridged version of this story, mainly because I felt that the unabridged versions of the first two books dragged for too long in details and descriptions of the characters. It was great to be able to learn what happened to Salander, but the third book is definitely the weakest of the three.

Excellent!

Any additional comments?

One of my first listens on audible. Many books down this one still has one on the best narrators and a great plot. Very worthwhile listening to.
