The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest

Stieg Larsson, Author , trans. from the Swedish by Reg Keeland. Knopf $26.95 (576p) ISBN 978-0-307-26999-7

The exhilarating conclusion to bestseller Larsson's Millennium trilogy (after The Girl Who Played with Fire ) finds Lisbeth Salander, the brilliant computer hacker who was shot in the head in the final pages of Fire , alive, though still the prime suspect in three murders in Stockholm. While she convalesces under armed guard, journalist Mikael Blomkvist works to unravel the decades-old coverup surrounding the man who shot Salander: her father, Alexander Zalachenko, a Soviet intelligence defector and longtime secret asset to Säpo, Sweden's security police. Estranged throughout Fire , Blomkvist and Salander communicate primarily online, but their lack of physical interaction in no way diminishes the intensity of their unconventional relationship. Though Larsson (1954–2004) tends toward narrative excess, his was an undeniably powerful voice in crime fiction that will be sorely missed. 500,000 first printing. (May)
