  1. Beautifull last book. A pity the series is now finished. But i have one question: what happened to Lisbeths twin sister? Was this a book to be?

  5. Can’t wait for third book.I read the first two books back to back, totally absorbing, great story, wonderful characters and just so well written. Why are they staggering the publication of the books in english ? Thankyou Stieg.

  6. WHEN WILL WE HAVE THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION??? I don’t understand why we don’t get an answer to that. I can’t believe they will wait until 2010, it doesn’t make any sense. We have it in german, french, italian but not in english, that’s no go. Please give us an answer!

  7. Just finished third book . (had to read Italian translation because I couldnt wait for English version) An absolutely cracking read .I was on the edge of my seat at times and shouting out,laughing and crying along the way. How tragic that such a tremendous talent was cut short at such an early stage

  8. I feel #3 is not as good as the first 2. It’s somewhat less realistic on the veracity (for lack of a better word) of what’s going on. I know (being a computer eng.) that there were some big holes already in the first two, but they were not as close to the plot than some of the iffy material in #3, esp. towards the end (I don’t give details not to spoil reading for those who did read it, but if you want to contact me and ask, you’re welcome. A quick search and you’ll find me).

    Great reading anyway, don’t misunderstand me.

  9. I think the first book is great, but the second and the third are total nonsense in my eyes… poor character development (the good guys are good, the bad guys are bad), totally naive and unrealistic story and both books are about 300 or 400 pages too long… where the first one had a fine Agatha Christie Setting, the second and the third have no convincing criminal plot at all. Blomkvists relationships towards women seem somehow satirical, not to say stumpid and empty, in a bad way and there are far to many logic holes popping up on mostly every part of the books… the first one is a nice read though, if you forget about the poor “ending after the ending”… mashing up espionage or economic thriller and classic who-dunit worked in the first, but the second and third are far too overhyped…

    Sorry for my bad english…

  10. I just finished the third. I liked it a lot! The 2nd and 3rd are very different from the 1st.

    One question:


    Whatever happened to Lisbeth’s sister???

  11. I have just purchased “The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest” in Australia at Big W supermarket for $19.95 [Aus].

    I am enjoying the last in the trilogy and will be very sad when I have finished as there is No more.

    Will always treasure and keep my Stieg Larsson books. What a phenomena he has been.

    I do hope we have more of Steig to come…..a fourth book is mentioned?

  14. I ordered the English translation from Amazon.UK and had it within a week — then read it in 2 days. There are slight slips in language, but the book is wonderful. I think it’s the best of the three.

  15. Just finished the ‘Hornet’s Nest’ having gone though other 2 books in order.

    Fantastic read, interesting characters, multi-layered plots all nicely finished off with a stapler (in the foot)!

    Wish there were more to come – better get on with my life now.

  19. I have read the 3 books (English translation) and must say this is the first time I have read all three books in one go (2weeks). If I had to list all the reasons why I liked it, the list would have been too long. I’ve also seen the 1st movie and liked it heaps. Let’s hope Hollywood doesn’t get its hairy hand in it.

  20. I am still having withdrawal symptoms after finishing hornets nest. Would like to know more about the twin sister….it was a bit odd they didnt bring her into the story. Also surprised we didnt have more about Lisbeths father and his background and more about the Section. I reckon Stieg had further plans.
