"From the author of the #1 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 anti-Muslim gang she enrages by rescuing a young woman from their brutality; not the deadly reach from inside the Russian mafia 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."-- Provided by publisher.

Shocked at how poorly this book was written, as with the 4th book, it takes almost the first half of the book to get interested. Who cares about the Millenium magazine? Who cares about a Islamic family living in Sweeden with family problems, those are in the paper everyday. And what is it so henious about the gov placing twins in seperate familys and then studying them once a year; I have a girlfriend who has a twin sister and they go to the U of M once a year... What was the point of this book??? Palmgren asks about a university study and the old nurse lady goes and gives him 2 patches of Fentynol? WTF..

Not much to add in the comments section- possible poor translation, stilted or wooden sentence structure. Easily not enough about Lisbeth Salinger. When the action finally starts, though, it proceeds nicely, proving that the author can write a good tale. This novel does keep the story and the characters alive, and I'd like to know about what may happen next.

This was better than the 4th novel but it still pales in comparison to Larsson's longer original trilogy. Perhaps some things were lost in translation. Lagercrantz's layman depiction of prison, hackers and A.I. are simply not credible so his version of Lisbeth suffers greatly from hyperbole. His themes are relevant but intertwining all subplots wasn't necessary ... nor was the epilogue.

Better than #4, but still weak. The author takes the "Tom Clancy" approach to action, that is taking a straight forward plot and substituting historical narrative, and changing character viewpoints as a substitute for straight forward quality narrative. It's not cheating but mediocre authors use it instead of quality writing.

Was anybody else bothered by the soft neo-Naziism in the tale: Two brothers of gypsy heritage who magically or genetically are attuned to European "gypsy jazz." They are subject to social experiment; disposed of when they may be inconvenient and their lives are only narrative used to pad Lizabeth's search for those who did her wrong. And yet it didn't feel like there was any sense of social revulsion in any of the heroic character's word. That was rather unsettling at the end of the book.

Oh and thanks for tying everything up pretty with a bow.

also agree with previous comments. Interesting plot but poorly written, repetitive 'cues' and annoying tagents.

As other here feel, this author's interpretation of the original concept leaves much to be desired, his style of writing included. I find his manner of storytelling pedestrian lacking creativity and style. He also tends to include details about food, etc that have nothing to do with the story being told; points he would do better to leave out. Regardless, it's sad someone more qualified isn't able to keep these characters moving, Salander especially.

Lisbeth Salander is back with a vengeance as the title predicts, fulfilling all the expectations
of the avid and faithful readers of her adventurous search for truth and justice.

This fast-paced,suspenseful political thriller rightfully belongs to the Millenium series
denouncing this time the intolerance , cruelty and hypocrisy of muslim males
and exposing also the horrific maltreatment of orphans in the name of scientific research .
The two topics are adroitly connected through Salander and Blomkvist ,
another feat of the author who definitely does not let Larsson down.

A stilted and unemotional story that is unfortunately moving further and further away from the shocking and brutal genius of the originals.

I'm glad to see the Stieg Larsson series continue but this one is a bit of a bust. Salander is a fascinating character but here she is just a shadow of herself. We get too much of other characters and not enough Salander and her compelling, outsider energy. The structure of the tale, especially towards the end, is also confusing, with leaps back and forth in time. l liked Lagercrantz's first outing, "The Girl in the Spider's Web," so I know he can do better.

The Lisbeth Sanders mysteries continue, and I like the new author better. This story didn’t seem quite as violent as the first two. Lisbeth has retained her cold uncaring iceberg of a personality, but as in the other books, she is a strong advocate for the underdog, in this case a Muslim girl who has been sent to prison for the murder of her brother.
