    "spellbinding"

    I have finished listening to Stieg Larsson's trilogy and am sorry to have it end. I don't know when I have enjoyed a book(s) so much. If only we could look forward to future writings by this author and the narrator, Saul Reichlin, was absolutely fantastic. All in all a wonderful "listen" and I think, after a while, I may re-read all three.

    "Great narration by Saul. Book was very slow"

    Thought it would be better. Not awful but it dragged on in many spots

    "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!

    "excellent"

    It has lots of details that need to be followed closely, and as the names are swedish they take a little longer to remember all the character profiles but it is an excellent story and narration was fantastic

    If you thought the second book dragged a bit, dont worry.
    Book 2 was just the glue that holds the others together!

    "Loved it, loved the whole trilogy"

    Sad that I have finished this book, I enjoyed it just as much as the preceding two and now look forward to see if The Girl in the Spider's Web can live up to Stieg Larsson's wonderful trilogy. Such a shame we won't get the opportunity to look forward to new novels from Larsson but I will revisit these many times I'm sure. 10/10.

    "Brilliant"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest to be better than the print version?

    Have not read it only listened but I can not imagine it would not be good as the story is so good.


    What does Saul Reichlin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    His own feeling and emotion for the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Do not miss out on this brilliant book. It brings all the pieces together from the previous 2 books.

    "The most exciting 60+ hours of story"

    Brilliant story, brilliantly read. The third instalment beats the other two, although I doubted that would be possible. The tension during the trial scene left me exhausted!

    What a fantastic end to this brilliant trilogy. I've enjoyed these books hugely. Excellently read by Saul Reichlin. If you love crime & suspense, you can't go wrong with these.
