The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest - Stieg Larsson
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is the last book by Larsson. It's the third book in the series that started with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and continued with The Girl Who Played with Fire. You must read them in order and I highly recommend you do so. Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander are two of the most interesting characters I've ever read about. Even given the cultural misalignment that you get at times because the story takes place in Sweden, there is a pace and an organization to these novels that keeps you reading into the wee hours of the morning. The ending is very satisfying to me. I wish there could be more but unless someone else picks up Larsson's pen this is it. Very highly recommended.
