The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest - Stieg Larsson

Name: The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
Author: Stieg Larsson
Publisher: Knopf Doubleday
ISBN: 9780307269997
Date: 2010

Description:
Larsson was a cerebral, high-minded activist and self-proclaimed feminist who happened to have a God-given gift for pulse-racing narrative. It's this offbeat combination of attributes—imagine if John Grisham had prefaced his writing career not by practicing law in Mississippi but by heading up the Stockholm office of Amnesty International—that has made the series such a sui generis smash…for fans of the first two books, there are plenty of the Larssonian hallmarks they have come to love: the rough justice meted out by Salander to her enemies; the strong, successful female characters, like Blomkvist's lawyer sister, Annika ­Giannini, and Millennium's editor in chief, Erika Berger; and the characters' acutely Swedish, acutely relaxed attitude toward sex and sexuality.
