This is the final in the Millenium trilogy and the last book we’ll see from the Swedish author as he died just after delivering the novels to his publisher. There is some talk that there’s an incomplete manuscript on his laptop computer but that’s the subject of legal wrangling between Larsson’s parents and his former partner so it’s debatable whether that will ever see the light of day. The Hornets’ Nest picks up exactly where The Girl Who Played with Fire left off. It opens with Lisbeth Salander and her brutal father being rushed to hospital where Salander has a bullet removed from her brain and the father she tried to kill recovers from axe wounds. The special group within the Swedish secret police, SAPO, realize that Salander will have to be dealt with once and for all otherwise the secrets they’ve been protecting and the crimes they’ve committed will be revealed to the world. Salander is forced to accept Mikael Blomkvist’s help if she is to outwit her enemies and so we have the old team back together again. This will be enormously satisfying for Larsson fans – loose ends are tied up and justice is dispensed. Again, some of the translation is a little clunky – pedants will hate the split infinitives – but that’s a minor quibble. This is a brilliant thriller - just don’t try to read it in a hurry. There are 599 pages of close type and I was on deadline which made for a marathon read but there was no way I was going to spoil it for myself by jumping to the end. Enjoy.
