Everything you need to understand or teach The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson.
Larsson's The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest is the third book in a trilogy. As such, the story picks up the day after the ending of The Girl Who Played With Fire. The book openly celebrates strong women, often referred to as warriors.
