by Steig Larsson
Stieg Larsson first introduces us to Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, where Lisbeth and Mikael team up to solve the mysterious disappearance of 16-year-old girl more than forty years ago. The Girl Who Played With Fire continues the saga, with Lisbeth eventually confronting her father, the terror of her childhood, with disastrous consequences. In The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest, Larsson pulls the various story lines from the preceding books together for a thrilling conclusion.
When I first saw this book on our list, I knew I would be reading all three books in the trilogy for a couple of reasons:
1) I hate reading books out of order
2) To compare the three books to figure out why only the third book showed up on our list
Each of the books in this trilogy became bestsellers, so why did the computer “kick out” this particular book as the best of the best and not the first two in the trilogy?
