The Girl who kicked the hornet's nest

Lizbeth Salander is bullet riddled and close to dying as this final novel in the trilogy opens. Are we going to lose the dark heroine of the work? No, a neurosurgeon comes to the rescue and provides a skilled solution to the bullet in Salander’s brain: he removes it without damaging any of the vital circuits that allow her to be the skilled thinker and computer hacker we have come to respect.

A friend had his email and FaceBook accounts hacked. The hacker sent out a fake distress call asking for money because of a mugging and robbery. I grew up with the friend and said I would be glad to help. Unfortunately, the questions I asked were available on his FB account so my verification was useless. I sent the money and found out that it was a fake request and I'm out the money. As a result I have deactivated my FB account and friends can contact me via email or phone.
