The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson
If you wanna see a girl do some hellacious butt kicking, this book is for you! Not since Kill Bill 2 have I seen such a powerful female character. Lisbeth Salander is the heart and soul of this exciting trilogy. I did read these books in order. For some reason, I struggled just a tiny bit with the first book in the series, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. But perserverance pays off in the end, because that was the set-up for the second book (The Girl Who Played With Fire) and this final one. Since Stieg Larsson is no longer among us, we are lucky to have The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest to tie things up. We want closure, right! And I got it in spades with this one. A great murder mystery for men and women both!
