This morning on NPR's Morning Edition (, there was a story by reporter Lynn 
Neery about the third installment of Stieg Larsson's Millenium series, The Girl who 
Kicked the Hornet's Nest.  Apparently, it has been available in Great Britain since 
October 1, and many people have been ordering it from there through Amazon UK.  The 
US publisher was interviewed about this, and said, it was illegel - a violation of 
copyright. He recommended we patronize our local neighborhood bookstore. My 
question to all of you out there who are more knowledgeable than I, is WHY is it a 
copyright violation?  If a traveler brings one back, or a European friend sends one 
as a gift, is that a violation? I understand and agree with the need to support our 
local bookstores and publisers, so my question is really an academic one. Am I 
going to order one for myself?  It sure is tempting.  If you are not yet hooked on 
this series, I do recommend you read it. Will I order it for high school.  No, 
probably not.
