For those of you who haven't been paying attention, Steig Larsson's "Girl with a Dragon Tattoo" trilogy has consistently climbed the besteller's charts the past few years. His third (and last-- sadly, he passed last year), "Girl Who Kicked The Hornest's Nest" is another heart-stopping, chilling read from the master of mystery.
Set in Sweden, these thrillers are not "easy" readers, but they're definitely worth the extra effort. The female protagonist, Liz Salander is "the most original heroine to emerge in crime fiction for many years" says the Independent.
In the new book of the series, Liz is set to face murder charges. Officially under police guard, she is allowed contact with only her surgeon or her lawyer. But Mikael Blomkvist, editor at Millenium magazine and Salander's self-appointed guardian angel, will not give up on this strangely compelling girl.
With the covert aid of Blomkvist and his journalists, Salander must first prove her innocence. The survivor of institutionalized abuse and violence, Salander, even in hospital, is spoiling for another fight.
