Letting Karin Smirnoff take over the baton after David Lagercrantz is a stroke of genius. It is hard to believe anyone could have done it better than Smirnoff. Unless it would have been Stieg Larsson himself
A really, really good crime novel. It is also a serious and successful attempt to keep Stieg Larsson's legacy alive and allow fiction to tackle crucial truths about our time
As Karin Smirnoff takes the baton from David Lagercrantz she proves that she is exactly the right writer
Lisbeth Salander is back - and maybe better than ever. Karin Smirnoff's take is both respectful of the past and ready for the future - altogether remarkable.
Fresh, fearless, faithful and original. Karin Smirnoff takes on a heady challenge and makes a stylish, exciting and truly worthy statement. One of the great crime series of our time could not be in safer, more capable hands. I loved it.
An absolute incident-packed thrill-ride from start to finish. Karin has taken on the legacy of a legend and done the series justice.
Smirnoff's writing is wonderfully vivid. If books were birds, this would be a raptor diving towards its prey with brutal agility.
[A] highly readable - and still ferocious - addition to the Millennium sequence
This seventh book featuring the iconoclastic, anarchic Lisbeth Salander is the first to be written by a woman, and it is all the better for it - not least because one of the principal themes of the series is violence towards women . . . [T]his legendary crime series is, thankfully, back in safe hands
Lisbeth Salander is alive and well, and embroiled in another thrilling adventure laced with danger, violence and enemies old and new . . . Fans of the heroic hacker Salander and ageing hack Blomkvist will not be disappointed
A breathlessly exciting debut
A satisfying drama . . . Smirnoff has allowed Salander greater warmth than Larsson ever did, which makes her both more credible and more appealing . . . Plenty of hot topics provide the background to the plot, but it is the well-told personal stories that drive the novel.
A thrilling adventure through a snowbound wilderness, with biting social commentary that Larsson would have been proud of.
