Continuing Stieg Larsson's Millennium Series.
In this adrenaline-charged, up-to-the-moment political thriller, Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist are back. The troubled genius hacker and crusading journalist thrilled the world in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, which have sold more than 80 million copies worldwide.
David Lagercrantz is a Swedish journalist and best-selling author of fiction and nonfiction. He was hand selected by the Larsson estate to write this standalone sequel based on Stieg Larsson's characters.

So thankful we still have Lizbeth!
I love Simon Vance's narration, but I think there is something wrong with the translation. "William Borg", Blomkvist's long-standing enemy in the press has a different last name, as does Erica Berger - I can't even figure out what it is now. It just doesn't make sense.
I have listened to the original three Millennium books at least 4 times. I love them. I enjoy them every time I listen. But this book "reads" more like fan fiction. As though Lagercrantz was attempting to emulate Larsson, but missed the mark. Not to mention, there are terrible holes in continuation. There is no mention of Monica Figeurola AT ALL (Blomkvist's major love interest in "Hornet's Nest.") and Salander is back to having a bunch of piercings, which doesn't fit with how she looked in "Hornet's Nest" either (she had taken several of her piercings out and had a few tattoos removed and was generally working on appearing more "grown up").
I am a die-hard fan of the series, and will finish it on principle, but I am woefully disappointed about the whole thing.
