The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

R

Most of the steamy stuff in The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest happens behind closed doors, but some readers might find characters' approaches to sex and love controversial. The R rating is mostly because of the graphic discussions of Salander's rape by Nils Bjurman and the discovery that Teleborian is trading in violent child pornography.
