The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (The Millennium Trilogy #3) by Stieg Larsson
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (The Millennium Trilogy #3)

Luc, January 5, 2012

This is my favorite read of 2011. The story is pitting an investigative journalist (Michael Blomkvist) and a talented computer hacker (Lisbeth Salander),who is also working on a contractual basis for a private security company, against a top secret swedish intelligence unit who answers to nobody but to the prime minister office. This unit was created solely to handle a soviet assassin who seeked refuge in Stockolm in the late 70s.

As Salander is fighting for her life and to clear her name in hospital, Blomkvist is immersing himself in one of the most dangerous assignment of his career. His task is to expose the link between the swedish intelligence community and a series of cover-ups to protect their soviet assassin, including the internment of Lisbeth Salander. This story is mainly about how far government operatives are willing to go in order to protect secrets that are deemed to be in the national security interest.
