Critic Reviews

"Rest easy, Lisbeth Salander fans - our punk hacker is in good hands." (Patrick Ryan, USA Today)

"Salander and Blomkvist are just as compelling as ever." (Michiko Kakutani, New York Times)

"Not only do the matter-of-fact style and intricate plotting and sexy, chilling atmosphere feel very true to the original novels, but Lagercrantz transcends the source material." (Benjamin Percy, Esquire)

Did the editor change

I have really enjoyed this series but this book was not of the same caliber. it was almost like the editor had changed it did not flow. Well performed though Saul does a great job.

Excellent story

I like the story. I almost finished the book in one session. It is written in a way that the previous books context is not that important.

Cannot better Stieg Larsson

As a fan of Lisbeth, this novel is not really about her at all. In my opinion her role in it is small, predictable and weak. It’s about another plot line altogether and misses the passion that, I believe, Stieg Larsson had for foregrounding Lisbeth, raising gender and neurodiversity issues.

Sadly disappointing

This is the sixth book in the Millenium series. Lisbeth prepares for the final battle of justice for her past wrongdoings, aided by Mikael.

I followed the series with much hope as I loved the story, characters and plot development, but have been sadly disappointed. The first was epic, a reread in my books, the second and third were ok, but the last three, including this one, were not great. I listened to them all to complete the series but I would, unfortunately, not recommend the final three.

Great ending to the 2nd trilogy

Great story and ending. I liked the twins story more though but overall superb. Voice acting was excellent. Highly recommended.

I liked it!

That’s it - it follows the original story close enough and the delivery is exactly the way I (as a South African non-native english speaker) thought it should sound! Thoroughly enjoyed all three!

Weakest of the bunch but still...

I was hesitant to read this book, afraid that it'll ruin my favorite series. It wasn't that bad but it definitely is the weakest. There are some plot holes and logical errors and moments where the characters actions are inconsistent. But there are some good bits and as a lover of the series I found a way to enjoy it.

If you like this series you will like this book

If you like this series you will like this book, at least I did. I thought the authors were creative, combining mystery and suspense which kept me interested. And of course you can't go past the excellent narration from Saul Reichlin. This one went into the top tier in my library.

Appalling

Rambling and tedious storyline and dreadful narration. Bears no relation to the original trilogy. I will not recommend it.

Poor

I agree with the listener who said that Lagercrantz's stories get worse as the series goes on, this is definitely the worst, very poor by comparison to Larson's originals and poor compared to his first effort, which was reasonable. This one really is all over the place though, not carefully crafted at all. If the publisher's really want to milk the Dragon Tatoo series even more, I suggest they ask Jo Nesbo to write the next one for them, even if it's under a pseudonym!

Uphill plod and strange end

Plodding story, light on action., truncated ending. Not just the characters who got lost on the mountain. Excellent performance by Saul Reichlin, but couldn’t defrost this turkey. Was so looking forward to this.

So so bad!!!

So disappointed. I tried for a couple of hours and had to stop. No proper story line. Nothing to hold your interest. And I find the narration really annoying. I enjoyed all the previous books, but this is just rubbish.

Oh Dear!

What a disappointment! I had thought that Lagercrantz had done a reasonable job following up from Steig Larsson, but this book was just awful. The dialogue was so clunky it was cringeworthy, and the action so ridiculous that I laughed out loud. Has Lagercrantz ever seen the aftermath of a motorcycle going through a window? Twice? I pity Saul Reichlin having his name attached to this. Been a member for seven years and this is the first time I will be returning a book.

Did the author ever read the original books?

Lagercrantz gets worse with each instalment. Writing melodrama instead of a story fails Salander. I thought at first that he had only seen the dramatisation and not read the books, then I thought perhaps he had only read the cliff notes, now I realise he must of only read the synopsis.

A great read / listen

I think some of the other reviews are way too harsh. I really enjoyed the book and found it to be an engaging, action- packed conclusion to Salander’s story. There are lots of strands to the story that are woven together well. The end is a little far fetched but riveting. I think the author has done an excellent job of not only continuing the millennium series but providing a fitting ending. It’s the kind of book that it’s not worth dissecting the details and being overly critical it’s best to just sit back, immerse yourself in Lisbeth’s world and enjoy it.

Sensational

It's so good to get another book in this superb series. Once again, many threads intertwine to weave a colourful tapestry of action, political intrigue, international plots, relationships and family feuds. It's genius.

Futile with shallow plot

It's my second Lisbet Salander book by David Lagenkrantz and I struggled with it even more than with the previous chapter. The story is so stretched that one loses the interest, there's no suspense at all and the whole book is just badly written.

Unexpectedly very good

I didn’t expect much from this one. I read the first non Stieg Larsson Millennium novel and while not terrible, was nowhere in the same league as the 1st three books. The “girl who lived twice” however, while obviously not a “Stieg” book, was a great listen and sits very well with the rest of the series. A far better book than I could have expected… congrats to David Largercrantz for doing such a great job

Week

A sadly week end which is damaging of Steig Larsons reputation. Leaving it at the end of Girl who kicked the hornets nest would have been far better

Unfortunately disappointing

Cameo roles at best by the main characters whilst supporting an otherwise uninteresting story that only serves to work against any expected suspense or momentum.
I have loved this series and alas it was loyalty that helped my soldier on until the end. A refund for me.
