The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest, by Stieg Larsson

July 21st, 2010 wasn't the best day of my life.  But the day wasn't all bad, I had purchased the final book in the Millennium Trilogy and got more than half way through it in a single day.  I was unable to sleep much last night so around 1:30 am I got up and came out to the living room, where I read the book off & on for the last 9 hours.  I finished it just moments ago, and it was an entirely satisfying finish for the characters.  I still think the 2nd book felt too much like filler, and the first book is the only one that stands on its own as a mystery.  None-the-less, it is easy to see why these books (and subsequent movies) have become such worldwide phenomena.  A shout-out to my sister who first told me about Dragon Tattoo, and even sent me her copy (which I subsequently dropped in the bath-tub).
