Congratulations!! I will be sending an email in just a few minutes and all the winner has to do is reply within 48 hours with their full name and mailing address and I will send out The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest to them!!
This is the last of the series--unfortunately Stieg Larsson died just after he handed in this 3 book series. The world has lost an extremely great author.
I felt like I waited forever for this to come out in paperback--but it was worth the wait-I happened to like the other two better--but this one was a zinger and I was very happy how it all turned out!! And I read all 820 pages in one day—was up till 1 AM—just could not put it down!!
Although I normally don’t do this I am going to write the synopsis found on the last page of the book to give you a better idea of the story line—If you haven’t already I highly suggest you go out and buy these 2 books!!
From Last page of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (First in this series)
An international publishing sensation, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo combines murder mystery, family saga, love story and financial intrigue into one satisfyingly complex and entertainingly atmospheric novel. Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden’s wealthiest families disappeared over 40 years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate. He is aided by the pierced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander. Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption.
The Girl Who Played With Fire (Second in this series)
Part blistering espionage, thriller, part riveting police procedural, and part piercing expose on social injustice, The Girl Who Played With Fire is a masterful, endlessly satisfying novel. Mikael Blomkvist, crusading publisher of the magazine Millenium, has decided to run a story that will expose an extensive sex-trafficking operation. On the eve of its publication, the two reporters responsible for the article are murdered, and the fingerprints found on the murder weapon belong to his friend, the troubled genius hacker, Lisbeth Salander. Blomkvist, convinced of Salander’s innocence, plunges into an investigation. Meanwhile, Salander herself is drawn into a murderous game of cat and mouse, which forces her to face her dark past.

The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest (Third and Last of this series)
In the concluding volume of Steig Larsson’s Millenium Trilogy, Lisbeth Salander lies in critical condition in a Swedish Hospital, a bullet in her head.
But she’s fighting for her life in more ways then one: if and when she recovers, she’ll stand trial for three murders. With the help of Mikael Blomkvist, she’ll need to identify those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she’ll seek revenge—against the man who tried to kill her and against the corrupt government institutions that nearly destroyed her life.
I will be giving one very lucky reader my copy of Steig Larsson’s “The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest.”
