Stieg Larsson had a number of loose ends to tie up after the first two novels in his trilogy, and in The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest he succeeds in that endeavor. En route, however, he introduces a number of new threads -- too many, in fact -- which require even more unraveling. The result is a somewhat bloated book, which, although it contains some of the suspense and cleverness of its predecessors, is unwieldy and overly long. The tale of Salander and Blomkvist comes to a satisfactory conclusion (although other aspects of the ending are a bit too neat), but I don't find myself wishing that there were still more volumes to come. Enough is enough, and it's time to move on to other things.
