The Girl Who Kicked a Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson

Lisbeth Salander starts out the third book of this trilogy in critical condition with a head injury caused by a bullet.  Her life is in jeopardy and so is her freedom if she survives, as she is under arrest for assaulting her father.  She is allowed no visitors other than her lawyer, who is Mikael Blomkvist’s sister.  Outside the hospital Mikael Blomkvist is fighting on her behalf to expose the whole story of corruption and cover-up before Lisbeth gets convicted and sent to a mental institution.  With a little help from others, Mikael and Lisbeth are able to communicate online and Lisbeth gets to work on her own case.  The trial scenes were the most enjoyable parts of the book as you get to see right triumph over wrong.  This book ties up all of the loose ends of the previous two novels and is the best of the three.  It is a great loss to the literary world that we will never see another Larsson novel, as his writing seemed to get stronger with each book.
