The Girl in the Spider's Web
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 i
And this is what I call the Overly Attached Fan Syndrome ^^
David Lagercrantz, a novelist and journalist, was asked to assume responsibility for the continuation of a trilogy of novels that frankly took the publishing industry by storm. The books left readers stunned with the marvelous insanity of the writing. More importantly Stieg Larsson created a char ...more
This is not the lisbeth as we know. It's the lighter version of her. very light. She is just a babysitter for august, some brat hacker who hacks american government.
But I enjoyed to read it anyway. I'll always read lisbeth's stories no matter what. I love her , I2ll always support the effort :D
Lagercrantz sanki kendi lisbeth'ini yeniden yaratmış gibiydi. Bizim tanıdığımız lisbeth'den geriye pek birşey kalmamıştı. arada bir insanlara fırlattığı o k ...more
MY BLOG: Melissa Martin's Reading List
I thought this book was wonderful! I have missed Lisbeth and Blomkvist for so long. I think the new author did a great job carrying on Stieg Larsson's series.
Lisbeth is one of the coolest women out there. I love her character, I love how smart she is, oh if I could be as smart as her. I do hate her past, but I am glad that she is a character that was written to rise above all of the horrible things that happened to her.
In this new book th ...more

I read the The Millennium Trilogy in anticipation of The Girl in the Spider's Web and as soon as it was out I began reading it with a lot of excitement and a little apprehension, just in case the new author doesn't live up to or come close to the writing talents of Stieg Larsson.
Well, clearly David Lagercrantz is no Stieg Larsson and everything I loved about The Millennium Trilogy was missing here. The plot was slow and tedious, ...more
David Lagercrantz was granted a blessing and a curse. A blessing in the sense that he gets to write another Lisbeth and Mikael novel, a series with a worldwide following that will certainly sell and most definitely get a lot of attention.
A curse because he takes the stage after a phenomenal opening act, a lamentable position. Rumor has it that Larrson’s partner was far from pleased about his selection by the literary executor as the writer to take over. Readers who di ...more
I went into this with low expectations given it wasn't written by the author of the previous three books. I think it is such a huge undertaking to jump into a beloved series and attempt to duplicate the author's voice. While there are definitely some flaws it is a decent thriller and not some horrible attempt at fan fiction.
I enjoyed revisiting Blomkvist and Salander's world although the first half of the book really suffers by bouncing around between way too many characters. However, i ...more
Lisbeths character in the first three books was so fluid that she became such a believable person with all her quirks, silence, and way of behaving that were always so consistent. but in this book I caught myself at least fifteen plus times thinking 'Salander would never have said that'. It at times made for a frustrating ...more
As readers come to know of this series of books, the plots are incredibly complex, intense and twisty. From a bas ...more
I think the reason I still liked it a bit was that I know the characters from the previous books. If this was my first time with Blomkvist and Salander, I think I would have been very puzzled.

This book is sloooow. It drags too much, there are many descriptions of unimportant things, and I just couldn't force myself to finish it.
When I first heard about this book I was upset because they are only continuing the series for obvious money reasons, and there is no way the ...more
---- Stieg Larsson
The journalist and the female hacker are back with a bang!
David Lagercrantz, a Swedish author, takes up the authority to continue with the legendary Millennium series of the international bestselling Swedish crime writer, Stieg Larsson. And Lagercrantz has proved that Lisbeth Salander cannot be dead, by projecting her with an immense power and energy in the latest installment of Millenni ...more
This should never have happened. Despite some of the things I enjoyed, it didn’t do any good for Millennium and for the other things it stands for.
If there was something that set apart these novels from everything else I’ve read, was how real these characters felt. And I’m not saying it lightly. This fourth book was a shallow understanding of what Lisbeth and Mikael once were. For a reader it’s very easy to recognize when your favorite characters just aren’t there. And you might be thin ...more
Claire Foy as Lisbeth Salander
In this continuation of Stieg Larsson's 'Millenium' series by David Lagercrantz, computer hacker Lisbeth Salander protects a young boy while she investigates a conspiracy and contends with murderers. It's best to read the series in order to get a handle on the characters and their convoluted lives.
Frans Balder, a brilliant Swedish computer scientist, created a revolutionary artificial intelligence (AI) program when he worked at the Solifon company in the United ...more
everything and the kitchen sink is thrown into this plot leaving the reader scratching her head
I felt like the author kept thinking of things to write about until he got to the last chapter and said,"uh-oh now I have to link this hodgepodge".
Honestly I was right there with the author until he started talking comic books and began adding characters.
Fans of the original series, just skip this

I flipped my SHIT when I saw this. My dream of having more Lisbeth has come true. I hope this is where we finally meet her twin.

Our favorite hacker-girl is still kick-ass and running huge circles of Sci-Fi all over the more traditional mystery scene. To note: Wet get lots of references to technological singularities, emergent AIs, MMORPGS, darknet, and even an ill-conceived MCU geekspew.
Lisbeth Salander is a legit badass feminist. She's independent, tough and loyal woman. She may be antisocial and doesn't easily trust people unless you earned it. She has a photographic memory a ...more

She's back. After all the waiting, anticipation, and controversy, Lisbeth Salander is back.
It starts with a hand, beating rhythmically on a mattress in an unknown bedroom. Why is the hand beating? Whose hand is it? Whose bedroom? What does it mean?
None of those questions are answered until much later in THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER'S WEB, and by then David Lagerc ...more
