Lisbeth Salander is back with a vengeance.
The series that began with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo continues as brilliant hacker Lisbeth Salander teams up with journalist Mikael Blomkvist to uncover the secrets of her childhood and to take revenge.
Lisbeth Salander—obstinate outsider, volatile seeker of justice for herself and others—seizes on a chance to unearth her mysterious past once and for all. And she will let nothing stop her—not the Islamists she enrages by rescuing a young woman from their brutality; not the prison gang leader who passes a death sentence on her; not the deadly reach of her long-lost twin sister, Camilla; and not the people who will do anything to keep buried knowledge of a sinister pseudoscientific experiment known only as The Registry. Once again, Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist are the fierce heart of a thrilling full-tilt novel that takes on some of the world's most insidious problems.
Great story, continues the saga
More like the original series than The Girl in the Spider's Web. The plot comes to a satisfying conclusion but Salander and Blomkvist spend most of the book in separate stories and I missed the satisfaction of more interplay between the leading two partners in this series.
Without revealing too much detail,The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye, rediscovers characters and institutions from Lisbeth's past and they continue their roles as purveyors of evil or justice. More is discovered about Lisbeth's back story and I wonder where Lagercrantz takes it from here.
I hope future books in the series are published, but I also hope the author focuses more on plot suspense and more intimate character development.
Don't waste your money.
As an avid fan and reader of the Salander series, I've always loved the story of her and around her. This book however has no story, it reads more like a police report, as in here's your dates, times, places, and persons involved. No real development of characters, no real background, just kind of slapped together. It's as if the the writer doesn't care about the series anymore, just wants to shove another book off the press.
I agree with two other reviewers one who awarded 5 stars and one who awarded one. I'm really more interested in Elisabeth and Mikael. However it was stillinteresting. Would recommend if you are a fan of the series
