The Swedish title of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium volume three was Luftslottet som sprangles but this was altered in the English version to The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets’ Nest. Which of course got me thinking about some other Hornets’ Nests, such as that complained of by Lord Cornwallis on his way to Yorktown, and his appointment with George Washington and Comte de Rochambeau.

“Charlotte is a veritable hornets’ nest of rebellion”.

And my photograph of The Hornets’ Nest at Shiloh, Tennessee.
