The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest

I'm glad that I made up my mind to finish this book. Good book but a bit slow.
part of it was I felt sorry for Lisbeth. For when she came into hospital the part of her was damaged was her brain that numbers would be effected. Which is her favorite thing to do. I found that the setting of hospital to court and what was between Blomkvist and Salander was a bit stagnant. There was not much happening. You could surmise was going on/going to happen when you read that Zalchenko was in hospital. The court scene was pretty much what I thought. Good to see a lawyer stand up for women's rights.
What made this book was the characters themselves.Salander's friend Blomkvist although not sure how he makes it with his friends and lovers. He was funny but a stand up friend.Interesting to look into more of what Berger was about. She came off as being tough but really she had feelings as everyone else.The Russian characters are like the CIA.

The little history behind certain things as like the Amazon women that get their breasts taken off was interesting. I like how Larsson intertwined the stories.
All the loose ends were tied up at the end of the book. The final battle between Salander and her brother was won. Now finally Lisbeth's scars inside of her are now starting to heal.

I never read the first book but did enjoy the Swedish movie. I liked this edition The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest. But out of the trilogy I liked the second book the best. The Girl Who Started the Fire.
