Mr. Larsson, wherever you are, thank you for your magnificent story telling which, like your life, ended too abruptly and much too soon.

Amy Norman Thom,

I completely agree. I too felt that this was a mash up of notes and poorly edited. I am still having a terrible time getting through it. I would hate to have to start over, but the overinformation is very frustrating. The cast of charachters and the cacophony of information is almost too much to bear. I loved the other two books, so this is really frustrating for me. I think that Mr. Larsson was brilliant and I wish he had lived to finish this himself.

There's a piece missing in all this. Why did he die when he did. Did he know he was dying ? Etc. Usually biographical information doesn't interest me, but here the lack of it creates mystery for his end-of-life bio may have deeply effected the form of Hornet's Nest.

Amy Norman and I agree yet again. I think that his bio would have to have had something to do with the finished product.
