New Reads:

Right now, we're reading The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson. I've been reading his trilogy for about a year now. See, I'm the kind of person who always has books lined up to read. There's always a queue. As soon as I finish one, I take the next one off the top and dive in. After I read each one of his books, there one a different book to get started on. And so I read them months apart. This is not rare behavior for me, although you'd think it would be given my obsessive-compulsive tendencies. 

Anyway, I'm finally getting around to reading the last book in the series. Have you read it? This is how it goes:

"Lisbeth Salander -- the heart of Larsson's two previous novels -- lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She's fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she'll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge -- against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.

Once upon a time she was a victim. Now Salander is fighting back."

I've heard a few things from people who have already read it. I'm interested to see how it all turns out. And if I agree with what I've heard.
