Stieg Larsson

The final volume of the trilogy has arrived. If I can tear myself away from my fiber pursuits, I plan to read this over the weekend.

"The exhilarating conclusion to bestseller Larsson's Millennium trilogy (after The Girl Who Played with Fire) finds Lisbeth Salander, the brilliant computer hacker who was shot in the head in the final pages of Fire, alive, though still the prime suspect in three murders in Stockholm. While she convalesces under armed guard, journalist Mikael Blomkvist works to unravel the decades-old coverup surrounding the man who shot Salander: her father, Alexander Zalachenko, a Soviet intelligence defector and longtime secret asset to S├Ąpo, Sweden's security police. Estranged throughout Fire, Blomkvist and Salander communicate primarily online, but their lack of physical interaction in no way diminishes the intensity of their unconventional relationship."

Written by Stieg Larsson (1954–2004)

I have almost finished spinning the Gum Ball - love it. I am really good with the spindle now if I must say so myself. It actually looks and feels like yarn !! YAY!!!

I LOVED the trilogy! It's just a pitty that Stieg Larrson had to pass away so early. There were a few more books in the series planned.
The movies are great also BTW (really great addaptation), if they should also be available in the US.

The first movie, The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo is in the theaters here now. The DVD is being released in July, I have pre-ordered it. I am reading the book on my iPad now. I ordered the audiobook.

Ha ha. Everyone is reading the Swedish sensation. :-) Hope you like it too. I couldn't put it down.

The movies are good, but the third one was much better as a book than as a movie. The other two they'd done a great job on though, and while they (of course) had to leave a bunch of stuff out of the movies, they still kept all the relevant points to move the plot forward.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was the first book I bought for my Kindle. It was on the home page and I downloaded the sample. I loved it and immediately bought the whole book. Then I had to wait for The Girl Who Played With Fire. Then I had to wait again for The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest. Well worth the wait though!!!
