From Publishers Weekly

Aug 31, 2015 – Lagercrantz's worthy, crowd-pleasing fourth installment in the late Stieg Larsson's Millennium saga opens in Sweden, where some intellectual property developed by artificial intelligence genius Frans Balder has been stolen by a video game company with ties to Russian mobsters. Crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist, who's casting about for a new investigative project, is about to meet with Balder when an intruder kills the scientist and puts Balder's autistic eight-year-old son in danger. Meanwhile in the U.S., the National Security Agency is hacked, and its chief of security, Edwin Needham, vows revenge. Lisbeth Salander plays a central role in both plot lines, and the pleasure resides in watching Lagercrantz (Fall of Man in Wilmslow) corral an enormous cast of characters into an intricate story revolving around the larger-than-life hacker and her desire to right wrongs, including corporate espionage, a government spying on its own citizens, and violence against the defenseless. Two new characters make strong impressions: Jan Bublanski, a Stockholm detective with a humanistic bent, and Camilla Salander, Lisbeth's twin, who sets the stage for further Millennium novels. Lagercrantz, his prose more assured than Larsson's, keeps Salander's fiery rage at the white-hot level her fans will want.

Customer Reviews

If you expect the genius that was Lars, move on

There were moments of this book I liked, I felt a connection to the characters that I had from the previous stories. But as it unfolded, the magic that was his style, very direct and dissociated, was not there. He unfolded the story for the reader, allowed the characters to bring you in. I could feel this authors sometimes heavy push towards emotion, he wasn't content to allow the story to bring about the feelings of the reader, but rather, tried, like many movies, to push the emotions onto the participant. I'm not a nostalgic person, I don't appreciate when an author tries to force feelings that may not be warranted. As far as a story, it wasn't bad.

The Girl in the Spider's Web

Lisbeth Salander never disappoints. Outstanding!

average

This could have been a really, really good book. The subject matter was interesting and the back story with Salander is great. The writing, however, felt choppy and uneven, and the resolution left a lot to be desired. Felt like this was finished on a publisher's deadline. That said, I'm interested for the next installment.
