Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist return
She is the girl with the dragon tattoo—a genius hacker and uncompromising misfit. He is a crusading journalist whose championing of the truth often brings him to the brink of prosecution.
Late one night, Blomkvist receives a phone call from a source claiming to have information vital to the United States. The source has been in contact with a young female superhacker—a hacker resembling someone Blomkvist knows all too well. The implications are staggering. Blomkvist, in desperate need of a scoop for Millennium, turns to Salander for help. She, as usual, has her own agenda. The secret they are both chasing is at the center of a tangled web of spies, cybercriminals, and governments around the world, and someone is prepared to kill to protect it . . .
The duo who captivated millions of readers in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest join forces again in this adrenaline-charged, uniquely of-the-moment thriller.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web: A Lisbeth Salander novel, continuing Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Series Reviews
It is difficult to assess a book when there is a lot of expectation. Moreso, when it is a continuation of a series by another author. It is a fact that David Lagercrantz is no Stieg Larsson but as a writer Lagercrantz has also made a name for himself. But all his fame and name would mean nothing if he lost the plot. And in agreeing to continue the Millennium series, Lagercrantz no doubt took the gamble of his life. And what a gamble it was!
The Girl in the Spider’s Web by David Lagercrantz, the fourth book in the Millennium series, couldn’t have been crafted better. What I immediately noticed was how Lagercrantz followed Larsson’s blueprint and stick closely to the original author’s imagination by keeping Lisbeth Salander’s vengeful and rancorous side intact, which is the result of her horrifying experiences early in life. Any other person with such a spirit may be disgusting but readers of the series do not bear any such attitude towards her. Rather, she is quite adorable, and fans of the series know that she possesses admirable qualities. Mikael Blomkvist is still the same person with new challenges and demons of his own.
David Lagercrantz deserves to be applauded for introducing a new character in the form of Frans Balder, a specialist in artificial intelligence. He is determined to go beyond this to the realm of super-intelligence, and with his eight-year-old autistic son plays a crucial role in the book. Lagercrantz also skillfully handles the reunion between Salander and Blomkvist, keeping one on tenterhooks for quite a dizzying spell. Waiting for the two to come together raises the tension and keeps one guessing. All in all, David Lagercrantz has done a splendid job and readers who have loved the earlier books in the series would have no cause for complain as The Girl in the Spider’s Web is a befitting tribute to Stieg Larsson and a superb continuation of his legacy.
