16 Books for 16 Days – Book 3

Day 3: The Girl who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest by Stieg Larsson, just out in October 2009.

[The character] Salander is a magnificent creation: a feminist avenging angel . . . I cannot think of another modern writer [Larsson] who so successfully turns his politics away from a preachy manifesto and into a dynamic narrative device. Larsson’s hatred of injustice will drive readers across the world through a three-volume novel and leave them regretting the final page; and regretting, even more, the early death of a mastery storyteller just as he was entering his prime. -The Observer
