Publisher's Summary

From the author of the number one international best seller The Girl in the Spider's Web, the new book in the Millennium series, which began with Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Lisbeth Salander, the girl with the dragon tattoo, the brilliant hacker, the obstinate outsider, the volatile seeker of justice for herself and others - even she has never been able to uncover the most telling facts of her traumatic childhood, the secrets that might finally fully explain her to herself. Now, when she sees a chance to uncover them once and for all, she enlists the help of Mikael Blomkvist, the editor of the muckraking investigative journal Millennium. 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, together, are the fierce heart of a thrilling full-tilt novel that takes on some of the most insidious problems facing the world at this very moment.

Critic Reviews

"[Narrator Simon] Vance's extraordinary talent comes through in the tense dramatic scenes involving a research study of twins gone awry and in his special ability to differentiate men, women, young, and old from all over the globe." (AudioFile)

Not up to par

Lizbeth is almost a side story here. It held my interest, true, but was ultimately disappointing. If you did not know who these people were from previous novels, it would have been a disaster.

Good start but peters out.

Even Simon Vance couldn't save this in the end. He might be the best part of the production. Very average in comparison to other books in series. Starts out entertaining but then peters out.

Kept Waiting For More

This story just felt very superficial compared to the others. I kept waiting for it to get started. Then it was over. It was entirely too neat and tidy at the end as well. It felt forced and rushed.

The narrator, as always, was outstanding.

Don't care about THIS Lisbeth anymore.

The new writer just doesn't capture the spirit and vision of Lisbeth that Mr. Larsson created. The story is dull, writing is cliche in parts and just doesn't ring true. I gave it to chapter 10 before returning it. I just don't care about THIS Lisbeth anymore. p.s. Simon is awesome as always on narration, but even his wonderful skills can't save this book.

Story was just ok, voice was better.

I thoroughly enjoy the stories of Stieg Larsson, but this felt like someone was just adding on to the series to add to a series. The story was ok and enough to pass the time, but the substance was filler. In Larsson's books, there is so much story told in the small actions. I missed that in this story. I could really tell the difference in the writers.

One book split into two

The characters are familiar and it’s nice to have a familiar setting but the book feels like it was pulled together in the middle to split it into two books. The two story lines didn’t really pull together and there is an obvious continuation in the next one with the Spiders.

Not Up to Par

I have loved every book in this series. Unfortunately, disappointed with this one; it did not stand up to the intricate and daring antics of previous tales.

Such a disappointment

Simon Vance was excellent as usual. Too bad the story wasted his time. Lagerkrantz needs to re-read his source material and pay attention to who the characters are, what motivates them, how they act, and how they speak.

very disappointed

I've read every book in the series and this is the first one I have not employed. it seemed very superficial and although this was unabridged it felt like much was left out, the relationships the interpersonal stories.

What is this garbage

I've listened to all the other books in the series and this was a bad apple. Not worth your time or money. Terrible plot line. Lagercrantz is a sorry excuse for Larson's replacement.
