The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest

Wow.  I for one loved the final installment of Stieg Larsson's trilogy. I was enthralled from start to finish with every character, detail, place and action.  In fact the entire trilogy was by far the best set of books I've ever read.  Each book stood alone and yet each depended on the other.  The thorough research, complex story and subplots, and well developed characters all woven together place this series at the top of the class not just for it's genre but for fiction writing as a whole.

It is unfortunate that Mr Larsson passed away so young.  His writing reflected deep beliefs and a certain moral code that despite any differences people may have were all so well communicated they could hardly be seen as anything other than the best writing possible in our world today. He will be sorely missed.
