“I have read Millennium with the same happiness and feverish excitement I read Dumas and Dickens as a child. It is amazing. This trilogy secretly comfort us. Maybe not everything is lost in this imperfect world. Welcome to the inmortality of fiction, Lisbeth Salander!”

Everything that was impressive about his debut is still there

Everything that was impressive about his debut is still there in this sequel: the skilful characterization, the sharp dialogue, the social criticism, the humour and the incredibly suspenseful intrigue.

Svenska Dagbladet (SE)
Lisbeth Salander is one of the most original and memorable heroines

Lisbeth Salander is one of the most original and memorable heroines to surface in a recent thriller: picture Angelina Jolie’s Lara Croft endowed with Mr. Spock’s intense braininess and Scarlett O’Hara’s spunky instinct for survival/…/ Salander and Blomkvist transcend their genre.
