Publisher Comments:

The New York Times and # 1 international bestselling author Jussi Adler-Olsen returns with another shocking cold case in his exhilarating Department Q series.

Detective Carl Mørck holds in his hands a bottle that contains old and decayed message, written in blood. It is a cry for help from two young brothers, tied and bound in a boathouse by the sea. Could it be real? Who are these boys, and why werent they reported missing? Could they possibly still be alive?

Carls investigation will force him to cross paths with a woman stuck in a desperate marriage- her husband refuses to tell her where he goes, what he does, how long he will be away. For days on end she waits, and when he returns she must endure his wants, his moods, his threats. But enough is enough. She will find out the truth, no matter the cost to her husband—or to herself.

Carl and his colleagues Assad and Rose must use all of their resources to uncover the horrifying truth in this heart-pounding Nordic thriller from the #1 international bestselling author Jussi Adler-Olsen.

Synopsis:

In the concluding volume of Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy, Lisbeth Salander lies in critical condition in a Swedish hospital, a bullet in her head.

But she's fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she'll stand trial for three murders. With the help of Mikael Blomkvist, she'll need to identify those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she'll seek revenge--against the man who tried to killer her and against the corrupt government institutions that nearly destroyed her life.

Stieg Larsson's final installment in the trilogy is an exhilarating thrill ride into a world of government conspiracy and secret agents. With its intricate weaving of characters, plot, and subplots, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest delivers an exciting combination of brains and brawn. Salander and Blomqvist are forces to be reckoned with, using intelligence to outwit their foes. Intense and imaginative, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's nest is perhaps Steig's most exciting tale in the trilogy.

The Stieg Larsson trilogy were the best books I read this year. Finished the last two books in four days each, I couldn't put them down!

I forgot to say in my review that I appreciate the way Larssen often describes in some detail what his main characters are wearing, because it helps visualize them and make them more real.
