Meet Lisbeth Salander, the iconic character who has captivated 100 million readers worldwide.

“Salander remains, in Lagercrantz’s hands, the enigmatic and fascinating anti-heroine in fiction” Financial Times

LISBETH SALANDER IS AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE

Sentenced to two months in a women’s prison for saving a young boy’s life by any means necessary, she refuses to say anything in her own defence. She has more important things on her mind.

Mikael Blomkvist makes the long trip to visit every week – and receives a lead to follow for his pains. One that could unlock the secrets of Salander’s childhood.

Even in prison system, Salander will stand up for what she believes in, whatever the cost. And she will never stop seeking the truth, drive by a childhood memory of a woman with a blazing birthmark on her neck – as if it had been burned by a dragon’s fire . . .

“Salander and Blomkvist have survived the authorship transition intact and are just as compelling as ever” New York Times

Translated from the Swedish by George Goulding

Reviews

Lagercrantz doesn't falter in the mayhem department . . . Larsson fans certainly won't be disappointed.
Kirkus Reviews
Lagercrantz's latest Salander novel, is even bolder - if somewhat more fantastical . . . Larsson had grand ambitions for his Millennium series, projecting a total of 10 novels. In Lagercrantz's hands, the series is realizing grand ambitions of another sort . . . The Girl Who Takes an Eye for An Eye intensifies the mythic elements of Larsson's vision.
Maureen Corrigan, Washington Post
Some fictional characters prove too popular to die . . . Such is the case with Lisbeth Salander . . . Lagercrantz is doing a wonderful job. It would be hard to imagine a sequel more faithful to its work of origin than this one, which emulates the spirit and the style of the original trilogy.
Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal
Lagercrantz's excellent second contribution to Stieg Larsson's Millennium series . . . twisting plot lines tie together in this complicated, fascinating mystery. As a bonus, readers learn the meaning of the dragon tattoo on Lisbeth's back.
Publishers Weekly
Expertly told, the plot crackles with life
Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail
Lagercrantz's compassion for the underdog adds genuine emotion to his baroque plotting. There is much to admire in the way he has grasped a tricky assignment - to continue one of the big­gest hits of recent years. Roll on the next "girl"
James Kidd, South China Morning Post
