The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest = 83 down, 17 to go

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest
Stieg Larsson
576 pages

My original plan was to wait a couple of weeks before I purchased and downloaded the third book in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series. But just a day or so after I finished the second one, I couldn’t resist and gave into temptation. While the first book is the best, two and three were intriguing as well…making them required reading if  I wanted to discover Lisbeth Salander’s ultimate fate.

This book wraps up the story lines that I was left hanging onto at the end of The Girl Who Played with Fire and satiated my need for a conclusion that delivered some definition justice, although a bit convoluted version. Here are a couple of descriptive confessions into Lisbeth’s psyche:

Salander was sulky, and often just silent. When she did say something, she took a long time to think, and she chose her words carefully. Often she did not reply at all, and sometimes she would answer a question that Giannini had asked several days earlier. During the police interviews, Salander had sat in utter silence, staring straight ahead. With rare exceptions, she had refused to say a single word to the police.

She wondered what she thought of herself, and came to the realization that she felt mostly indifference towards her entire life.
