    Story

    Salander is plotting her revenge – against the man who tried to kill her, and against the government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life. But it is not going to be a straightforward campaign. After taking a bullet to the head, Salander is under close supervision in Intensive Care, and is set to face trial for three murders and one attempted murder on her eventual release.

    If you could sum up The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest in three words, what would they be?

    dark, thrilling and fascinating


    Any additional comments?

    The trilogy offers a glimpse into a dark but fascinating underworld, with memorable characters, a growing web of intrigue and subterfuge, told with masterful flair. It is a great pity that this was to be Larsson's last opus.

  • War and Peace

    • UNABRIDGED (61 hrs and 8 mins)
    • By Leo Tolstoy

    Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy's genius is clearly seen in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle, all of them fully realized and equally memorable.

    What did you love best about War and Peace?

    War and Peace describes Russian society during the Napoleonic Wars through the eyes of its ruling classes, its military leaders, even through the eyes of Napoleon. It is also a philosophical treatise on human nature, society, and war. A deeply humanistic work and rightly considered a literary masterpiece.


    Which character – as performed by Frederick Davidson – was your favorite?

    The narrator manages to convey the intonation and emotions of a wide caste of characters without ever losing the thread. Quite a feat and much easier to listen than to read!
