    Story
    (8604)

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "Big Fan"
    Overall

    The third book of the trilogy changes from lots of action to actually tying together the story. Doesn't leave to many questions but, it is sad to have to say good bye to the characters. It was a pleasure to listen to the trilogy.

    From the author of The Power of One comes an inspiring human drama of three lives brought together and changed forever by the extraordinary events of recent history. Inspired by real events, Bryce Courtenay's new novel tells the story of three people from vastly differing backgrounds. All they have in common is a tough beginning in life.

    Jimmy, because he is the kind of man I want to be.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene talking about meeting in the bar to remember the men who didn't make it every year for 30 years.


    Who was the most memorable character of Brother Fish and why?

    The countess because of her transformation from intimidating matron, through friend to young refuge girl in China.

    If you have a credit to spend, you can't go wrong with this book.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Rook in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, captivating, different


    What other book might you compare The Rook to and why?

    Monster Hunter - they both deal with the paranormal and secret organizations that keep humans safe. Both are funny and move at a good pace. The Rook is a tighter story, but both are good buys.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh, a lot.

    Story

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "If you start you won't stop"
    Overall

    The second book in a trilogy. I have listened to both books several times and find new nuances each time. Lots of twists and turns to keep you on your seat. I can't wait for the third book to be released.
