As the finale to Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest is not content to merely match the adrenaline-charged pace that made international bestsellers out of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire. Instead, it roars with an explosive storyline that blows the doors off the series and announces that the very best has been saved for last. A familiar evil lies in wait for Lisbeth Salander, but this time, she must do more than confront the miscreants of her past; she must destroy them. Much to her chagrin, survival requires her to place a great deal of faith in journalist Mikael Blomkvist and trust his judgment when the stakes are highest. To reveal more of the plot would be criminal, as Larsson’s mastery of the unexpected is why millions have fallen hard for his work. But rest assured that the odds are again stacked, the challenges personal, and the action fraught with neck-snapping revelations in this snarling conclusion to a thrilling triad. This closing chapter to The Girl’s pursuit of justice is guaranteed to leave readers both satisfied and saddened once the final page has been turned.

My first reaction after reading the last word from the book — Relieved, then I smiled. It’s like a roller coaster ride when I started reading the Millennium Trilogy. I think it has been a month before I started reading the final book. 

The book started at the hospital where Lisbeth Salander and Zalachenko have been rescued. I thought Lisbeth would really suffer a great damage. Good thing the author had pity so he didn’t add a great deal of suffering anymore. The story merely evolved on how this organization called The Section keep their name hidden. They will do everything to protect their organization. That includes killing people. Of course, Mikael Blomkvist is to the rescue. I wouldn’t spoil any further. Just wanna inform you people that bastards were killed. Bravo. 

Some people don’t really like the concept or the story behind this trilogy. Mainly it discussed women’s rights in the society, not only where the story had taken place but also around the world. Most probably, that’s the reason the trilogy became phenomenal. Personally, the story was not easy to read. It took a lot of time and I had to deal with some crucial parts that include sexual molestation. However, it’s very engaging and as I mentioned on my previous reviews, Lisbeth Salander is one of my favorite heroine. 

I’m happy that the book ended well. This series is one of a kind and one of my favorites.
