Product Description Review Lagercrantz has constructed an elegant plot around different concepts of intelligence . . . his continuation while never formulaic is a cleaner and tighter read than the originals . . . Without ever becoming pastiche the book is a respectful and affectionate homage to the originals . As I read Lagercrantz's The Girl in the Spider's Web I found that I kept forgetting for several pages at a time that I wasn't reading genuine Larsson . . . One devours Larsson's books for the plots the action the anger and most of all for Lisbeth Salander . . . Lagercrantz has caught her superbly and expertly spun the sort of melodramatic yarn in which she can thrive. Fans of Stieg Larsson's captivating odd couple of modern detective fiction - the genius punk hacker Lisbeth Salander and her sometime partner the crusading investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist - will not be disappointed . . . Salander and Blomkvist have survived the authorship transition intact and are just as compelling as ever . Elegantly paced slickly executed and properly thrilling . First the conclusion. David Lagercrantz has done well . . . The Girl in the Spider's Web conveys the essence and atmosphere of Larsson's Millennium novels . He has captured the spirit of their characters and devised inventive plots most of them suitably exaggerated . . . On the evidence of Spider's Web most Millennium fans will want to continue following their Lisbeth. Lagercrantz's real achievement here is the subtle development of Lisbeth's character; he allows us access to her complex alienated world but is careful not to remove her mystery and unknowability. Lisbeth Salander remains in Lagercrantz's hands the most enigmatic and fascinating anti-heroine in fiction. Rest easy Lisbeth Salander fans - our punk hacker heroine is in good hands . . . Swedish crime novelist David Lagercrantz takes the reins with prowess not only mimicking Larsson's shamelessly pulpy prose but admirably expanding the deliciously depraved world of the novels . Book Description The girl with the dragon tattoo is back: Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist return in the 1 bestselling continuation of Stieg Larsson's Millennium series.
