So thankful we still have Lizbeth!

STORY (thriller) - Yes, the loss of Stieg Larsson is huge, but I so appreciate David Lagercrantz for this effort. Lizbeth is an awesome character and, thanks to him, she's going to be around a little longer!

Personally, I didn't like this book as much as the first three, but that stems from my own personal taste and, perhaps, stupidity rather than from Lagercrantz's writing. For one, I would have liked a few less characters to keep straight. I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I got confused with who was who several times. Second, although Lizbeth definitely plays a major role in the story, I would have preferred more of her. (Yes, I'm a fan). And, third, while I normally do not enjoy violence, I've come to expect it in this series and actually would have liked more of it in this book.

On the positive side, the plot is thrilling and complex, and it was wonderful to spend time with Lizbeth and Mikael again. Thankfully, their characters have not changed one bit! The addition of an autistic boy character was very interesting, and I loved the deeper insight into Lizbeth's childhood and the dark relationship she has with her sister. The book doesn't end with a bang, but everything is explained and it's a nice ending.

PERFORMANCE - Simon Vance delivers his usual awesome performance and lends continuity to the series.

OVERALL - As always, there is some violence and cursing, but no sex scenes this time. Recommended for anyone who loves The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I hope the criticism Lagercrantz is receiving for this sequel doesn't dissuade him from continuing our beloved series...

A big disservice to Larson. Don't waste a credit

Oh brother! Two chapters in and it is so boring it's unbearable. I feel like I'm listening to a technical manual. I thought for a moment it would pick up, there would be some character development, some seeds of a plot brewing, some foreshadowing, something to wet my interest but sadly no. How long do I have to listen to him go on and on and on about the my new show the day today operations of the newspaper?
This book is unfairly capitalizing on the Dragon tattoo series' reputation. It bears little resemblance.
I feel like the characters are in an alternate, parallel universe and not in a good way. Do not waste a credit.
