Teaser Tuesday: The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson

First off, I wanted to thank everyone for their kind comments on my last post. Thankfully my grandmother is okay. She had surgery on Friday to get a pacemaker, and returned home today. We flew home last night landing just before midnight, so by the time we got home it was close to 1am. It was a struggle at work today!

Anyway, this week my teaser comes from page 267 of the third, and final, book in the Millenium trilogy by Stieg Larsson, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest.


He could not see anything remarkable, but he did observe that there was a barely visible darker area immediately adjacent to the bullet hole. He wrote a carefully worded and noncommittal comment on her chart:

Radiological examination gives a basis for definitive conclusions but the condition of the patient has deteriorated steadily during the day. It cannot be ruled out that this a minor bleed that is not visible to the images. The patient should be confined to bedrest and kept under strict observation until further notice.

Teaser Tuesday is host by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!

    When I first saw the covers of these books I wasn't bothered but there's been so much publicity about.

  6. I still have to read this trilogy, but there's so many books I want to read I don't know if I'll ever get to them, so I'd better watch the movies I think.

  8. Sullivan, I am hoping get to see the original films, but I will probably see the Hollywood version.

    Thanks Fredamans and Charlie! Charlie, I really enjoyed the first couple of books in the series.

    Audrey, make sure you start with the first book in the series which is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

    Clarissa, I bought this the first day it came out too. It has just taken me this long to read it.

  14. How timely for your recommendation, Marg. I just saw movie "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" Sunday and it definitely deserved its 3 and 1/2 star rating. I have not read any of the Millenium trilogy, but will definitely remedy that now. Am assuming they should be read in order?

    Thanks for already stopping by Summit Musings to check out my teaser for Lunch in Paris.

  26. Glad to hear that your grandmother is doing ok. I read the first book in this series a few months ago and didn't really enjoy it very much. I think it's just not my genre. I do hope that you enjoy them though, and I will be interested in hearing what you thought of the other books in the series!
