Lisbeth Salander lies in Intensive Care with a bullet lodged in her head. She will face trial for three murders and one attempted murder on her release.

With the help of journalist Mikael Blomkvist, Salander must not only prove her innocence, but identify and denounce the corrupt politicians that have allowed the vulnerable to become victims of abuse and violence. Salander is now ready to fight back.

    "Loved It, Loved it, loved it!!!!"

    I felt sad when the audiobook ended, not because I didn't love the story but because the author is not around to give us MORE!!!!!!!

    "Best Author Ever"

    I love this author. I read or listen to books constantly and even though I like Ken Follett this author was even better. The characters are so rich and the story line so intriguing. Can't stop listening to it once I start. Too bad the author is dead and won't be writing any more, he rocked!

    "I have heard this trilogy countless times"

    Both in Swedish and English, and it still as good as it first time. You almost need to hear it several times to really appreciate everything. Fantastic English narrator!!

    Where does The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've listened to the trilogy in about a week, my other half hated me. I just couldn't stop thinking about what's going to happen next , thinking and imagined each character. They feel like a part of my life and I am missing it now


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it loved it best books for me by far

    "Over hyped?"

    I listened to the whole series which I suppose means I enjoyed it to a degree. My problem was I found I really didn't engage with any of the characters. Overall I felt like this was a cold a clinical piece of story telling.
