Publisher's Summary

The girl with the dragon tattoo is not given to forgiveness.
Lisbeth Salander has been forged by a brutal childhood and horrific abuse. And repeated attempts on her life.
The ink embedded in her skin is a constant reminder of her pledge to fight against the injustice she finds on every side.
Confinement to the secure unit of a women's prison is intended as a punishment. Instead, Lisbeth finds herself in relative safety. Flodberga is a failing prison, effectively controlled by the inmates, and for a computer hacker of her exceptional gifts there are no boundaries.
Mikael Blomkvist makes the long trip to visit every week - and receives a lead to follow for his pains, one that could provide an important exposé for Millennium: Salander tells him to check out Leo Mannheimer, a seemingly reputable stockbroker from Stockholm, somehow connected to the long-ago death of a child psychologist - and to the psychiatric unit where Lisbeth was an involuntary patient as a child.
Lisbeth knows she is coming closer to solving the mysteries of her early life, and even within the confines of the prison, she feels the deadly influence exerted by her twin sister. She cannot stand by as racial and religious conflicts run unchecked amongst the community around her, manipulated by criminal forces far beyond the prison walls.
Salander will stand up for what she believes in. She will find out the truth. Whatever the cost...
The tension, power and unstoppable force of The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye are inspired by Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy, as Salander and Blomkvist continue the fight for justice that has thrilled millions of readers across the world.
Translated from the Swedish by George Goulding.

Doesn't quite hit the mark

The plot had promise but it just is too convenient with just in time saves. The author should have spent more time developing the characters rather than just chasing sensational situations.
Pitty.

A pity about the performance

I have enjoy the full series, but found this book lacking. I kept looking and hoping to find this book read by someone else just so I could enjoy the story some more. I would gladly send it back and listen to it again if read by someone else, more fluid and not so staccato.

The Story That Makes Salander a Sideshow

When David Lagercrantz controversially took the Millenium series forwards I think a lot of people had reservations but Stieg Larsson had created such wonderful characters that we felt they deserved to live on. With the first book I think Lagercrantz managed to pull it off pretty well. This one though I am not so sure. It's a pleasing enough mystery that he weaves and an interesting look into the evergreen nature vs nurture debate. Unlike others in the series it does tie off all the loose ends nicely and it further explores the hellish fires of Lisbeth's childhood that forged the wonderful character we've come to love. It also starts very well with Salander behind bars in a tough environment still trying to serve justice in her own inimitable way.

Saul Reichlin is an excellent narrator and does a good enough job of this one though as I thought before I don't think he has the youthful "edge" that's required to do a number of the characters full justice.

So, what's not to like? Well simply put while this is a decent if relatively tame story it does seem to have taken full precedence and the characters are sacrificed for it somewhat. Despite a few decent scenes at the beginning and some excellent interactions with her old guardian Salander is a side show for much of the book and Blomqvist although prominent seems to be merely a means to move it forwards and flesh out the background.

In summary I still enjoyed it but I think that if Lagercrantz is going to continue to roll these out he needs to adjust the balance between his own clever story ideas and allowing the characters we all love to take their full part.

Should never have been written

Audio is OK... struggles with a number of characters though, like a young Indian boy.

That said the plot is just too far fetched when taken with the existing back story.

Additionly the narrative lacks the features that marked the first three books in the series.

I advise you Don't listen to this and maintain your positive impression of the first books

Meat and potatoes

The key ingredients are there. But the writing craft is not. It’s like the meat and three veg are on the plate with no salt pepper or technique.
Happy to have read. Miss the craft of original author.
