The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Stieg Larsson

Narrated By: Simon Vance

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: May 2010

Duration: 20 hours 30 minutes


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.

  • Michael Demello

    Best of the trilogy! Incredible conclusion to a stunning series. It's devastating that Larsson won't be writing more. Vance narrates the trilogy beautifully.

    I did not realize that this one, 'Hornet's Nest', was a continuation of 'Fire'. Another 16 cd's to listen to, and I couldn't wait to get to the next one! One of the best I have 'read'. As opposed to some books, or authors, this book did not just quit, everything came together at the end, and made sense!
