"Salander and Blomkvist are just as compelling as ever. . . . Fans of Stieg Larsson's captivating odd couple of modern detective fiction will not be disappointed." --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
"Riveting. . . . Pyrotechnic. . . . An intelligent novel that has Salander entangled in one of the most contentious issues of our times." --Chicago Tribune "The Girl in the Spider's Web is masterful. . . . Intricate and ambitious. . . . Salander is an extraordinary heroine whose hacker skills are more relevant than ever in an increasingly high-tech surveillance society." --The Atlantic
"Lagercrantz has more than met the challenge. Larsson's brainchildren are in good hands and may have even come up a bit in the world." --The Wall Street Journal "Lagercrantz's real achievement here is the subtle development of Lisbeth's character; he allows us access to her complex, alienated world but is careful not to remove her mystery and unknowability. Lisbeth Salander remains, in Lagercrantz's hands, the most enigmatic and fascinating anti-heroine in fiction." --Financial Times
"A thrillingly layered book every bit as addictive as the originals." --O, The Oprah Magazine "[A] worthy, crowd-pleasing fourth installment. . . . Lagercrantz, his prose more assured than Larsson's, keeps Salander's fiery rage at the white-hot level her fans will want." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "[A] smart, action-packed thriller that is true to the spirit of the characters Larsson created while adding interesting new ones and updating the political backdrop that made the Millennium series so compelling." --The Buffalo News
"This whirlwind of nonstop action and intrigue is compulsively readable to the electrifying end." --Library Journal (starred review) "Fans of the original trilogy will be pleased with [Lagercrantz's] new installment. The novel is a smart, propulsive thriller and espionage tale with a timely digital age plot (think Snowden and Wikileaks)." --The Hollywood Reporter
"Engrossing. . . . In spinning a complex and intriguing new chapter in the adventures of Blomkvist and Salander, Lagercrantz has written a worthy successor to one of the more uniquely compelling thriller sagas of his generation." --Paste
"Lagercrantz pulls it off, and with a great deal of style. . . . Elegantly paced, slickly executed, and properly thrilling. . . . A welcome treat." --The Guardian "Passion and fire, check: there are plenty of both here. . . . Fast-moving, credible, and intelligently told. Larsson fans won't be disappointed." --Kirkus Reviews
"Action-packed and thoroughly enjoyable. . . . [A] finely-wrought thriller. . . . I will eagerly devour the next adventure for Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist, especially now that we know their fate lies in the hands of a writer worthy of their story." --William O'Connor, The Daily Beast
THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO IS BACK WITH A UK NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER
Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist have not been in touch for some time.
Then Blomkvist is contacted by renowned Swedish scientist Professor Balder. Warned that his life is in danger, but more concerned for his son's well-being, Balder wants Millennium to publish his story - and it is a terrifying one.
More interesting to Blomkvist than Balder's world-leading advances in Artificial Intelligence, is his connection with a certain female superhacker.
It seems that Salander, like Balder, is a target of ruthless cyber gangsters - and a violent criminal conspiracy that will very soon bring terror to the snowbound streets of Stockholm, to the Millennium team, and to Blomkvist and Salander themselves.
The Girl in the Spider's Web is book four in the Millennium series. Book five, The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye, was published in September 2017.
The Girl Who Lived Twice - the final novel in the series by David Lagercrantz - is available to preorder now.
