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

Teaser Tuesdays, hosted by MizB, asks you to choose two sentences at random from your current read.

Bjorck looked at the noose, failing to understand. Then he heard movements behind him and felt his knees buckle.

from The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson

This quote is from an uncorrected proof. It may be different from the final version of the book, which is to be released in hardcover May 27, 2010 by Alfred A. Knopf Publishers.

The Scandinavian thriller is the third in the Millennium Trilogy by Larsson, completed just before he died in 2004.  It features the "troubled but genius" main character, Lisbeth Salander. The first novel was The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Vintage) and the second,
The Girl Who Played with Fire (Vintage)

What the critics say:
"Stieg Larsson's vivid characters, the depth of the detail across the three books, the powerfully imaginative plot, and the sheer verve of the writing make the trilogy a masterpiece of its genre." - The Economist.
