THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNETS' NEST begins directly after the dramatic finale of THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE.
It takes place in hospital where Lisbeth lies critically injured, where Zalachenko, her father, is also severely wounded, and where the police, security personnel and other vultures are circling round the pair. Anyone who has not read the previous two books will probably find this a long introduction.
The book bursts into real life after this long prologue.
When a crucial report is stolen from Zalachencko's apartment, he uses this circumstance to find out more than the perpetrators had bargained for, and to strike back at them, in a clever game of double bluff.
Longwinded, but ties up a few loose endsWas this review helpful?

Lisbeth is in hospital with a brain injury, while Blomvist executes a plan to help her with the cases pending against her.
The book goes into even more background detail than the previous 2 novels, adding bulk that might not have been necessary (one gets the feeling that certain characters were created as a device to conveniently move the story along). Having said that, it’s still an engaging story and keeps you going to the end.
As with the first book there is another story within a story. I’m sure Larsson intended the series to be more than a trilogy, as this book sets up a few new questions.
Very satisfying (Swedish) court scenes to vindicate Lisbeth, although the procedures are not what one expects from watching American TV series.
