Hornet's Nest

On my trip to the Northeast, I read The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson. I started in Chicago's O'Hare airport on the 3rd and finished on the flight back to Nashville on the 7th.

Talking about this book is spoilery for the previous book. the first book, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, stands alone just fine but the second and third read like one long novel really. Blomquist and company spend this book uncovering the conspiracy of secret agents that have dogged Salander her whole life. Though she spends most of the book in the hospital, Salander also helps with the research as well as paying back the help that she's being given.

Can i become a journalist or a hacker? I must say that those two careers come off as particularly enticing in these books. I'd be an excellent researcher but not as good of a writer i think.

I would say this one if a 5 but the series is a 6. the first book is the best for sure. This one does count for my Chunkster Challenge list too!
