Reviews

No doubt about it, Lagercrantz has done a skilful job. He may even be a better writer (translation permitting) than Larsson. - Sydney Morning HeraldBut the good news is that it is a compulsive page-turner with a twisted, socially aware storyline. Salander has also lost none of her surly fascination and emerges once again as a unique contemporary heroine. - Good Reading, AustraliaFans of Stieg Larsson's captivating odd couple of modern detective fiction - the genius punk hacker Lisbeth Salander and her sometime partner, the crusading investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist - will not be disappointed . . . Salander and Blomkvist have survived the authorship transition intact and are just as compelling as ever. - New York TimesLagercrantz has constructed an elegant plot around different concepts of intelligence . . . [his] continuation, while never formulaic, is a cleaner and tighter read than the originals . . . Without ever becoming pastiche, the book is a respectful and affectionate homage to the originals. - GuardianLagercrantz'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 TimesRest easy, Lisbeth Salander fans - our punk hacker heroine is in good hands . . . Swedish crime novelist David Lagercrantz takes the reins with prowess, not only mimicking Larsson's shamelessly pulpy prose, but admirably expanding the deliciously depraved world of the novels. - USA TodayAs I read Lagercrantz's The Girl in the Spider's Web, I found that I kept forgetting for several pages at a time that I wasn't reading genuine Larsson . . . One devours Larsson's books for the plots, the action, the anger, and most of all for Lisbeth Salander . . . Lagercrantz has caught her superbly, and expertly spun the sort of melodramatic yarn in which she can thrive. - Daily TelegraphElegantly paced, slickly executed, and properly thrilling. - Observer
