The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye
By David Lagercrantz
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 Islamists she enrages by rescuing a young woman from their brutality; not the prison gang leader who passes a death sentence on her; not the deadly reach 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.
Just made 3 stars3By FaithFilled&Thankful75!I'm an admitted fan girl of Lisbeth & Mikael, but with the latest addition to the Millennium Series Im strongly considering going on a "break" with the Author. I only kept reading because I started it and was curious enough to see why I cared about the multiple story lines. Unfortunately I wasn't rewarded in the end for hanging in there. I beg the Authors trying to carry this series to please reread the original 3 novels, and on the next round, bring back some of that energy & grit I used to love about my two favorite characters.
Wow!5By Discerning ReaderThis is a great book, a fine continuation of the trilogy, I have read them all and think Mr. Legercrantz is an excellent writer, to continue this series.
Convoluted3By carocrossI agree with two other reviewers one who awarded 5 stars and one who awarded one. I'm really more interested in Elisabeth and Mikael. However it was stillinteresting. Would recommend if you are a fan of the series
Don't waste your money.1By zoopilicAs an avid fan and reader of the Salander series, I've always loved the story of her and around her. This book however has no story, it reads more like a police report, as in here's your dates, times, places, and persons involved. No real development of characters, no real background, just kind of slapped together. It's as if the the writer doesn't care about the series anymore, just wants to shove another book off the press.
Great story, continues the saga5By agentsparkyMore like the original series than The Girl in the Spider's Web. The plot comes to a satisfying conclusion but Salander and Blomkvist spend most of the book in separate stories and I missed the satisfaction of more interplay between the leading two partners in this series. Without revealing too much detail,The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye, rediscovers characters and institutions from Lisbeth's past and they continue their roles as purveyors of evil or justice. More is discovered about Lisbeth's back story and I wonder where Lagercrantz takes it from here. I hope future books in the series are published, but I also hope the author focuses more on plot suspense and more intimate character development.
