The Girl Who Takes An Eye For An Eye

“First you find out the truth. Then you take revenge.”
Lisbeth Salander

The fifth book – and the second to be written by David Lagercrantz – in the Millennium Series, the global publishing phenomenon that has sold a total of 99 Million copies to date.

Lisbeth Salander is serving a shorter sentence at a women’s prison and soon finds herself challenged by its unofficial leader, Benito. Meanwhile, Lisbeth’s former guardian has found new leads that could shed light upon her past, leading Salander and Mikael Blomkvist to investigate a successful stockbroker with a seemingly spotless background. But is he connected to Lisbeth and her twin sister Camilla?

With Benito and her gang set for revenge, time is running out for Salander and Blomkvist to solve the mystery.

The Girl Who Takes An Eye for An Eye is a thrilling story involving authority abuse, family honour and the shadows from Lisbeth’s childhood that still haunt her.

Stieg Larsson’s crime fiction series has left an everlasting mark on publishing history. With The Girl in the Spider’s Web, David Lagercrantz continued and expanded the universe Larsson had created – to the appreciation of Blomkvist and Salander fans all over the world.

Reviews

He is one of the greatest in this genre.

David Lagercrantz constructs his work solidly on the foundation made by Stieg Larsson. The characters of these novels continue to fascinate, and when it comes to the ability to create tension, he is one of the greatest in this genre.

Svenska Dagbladet (SE)
Lagercrantz respects the Larsson philosophy.

Staying true to the personality of the punky hacker Salander and giving depth to the investigative journalist Blomkvist and his new characters, Lagercrantz respects the Larsson philosophy.

L’Express (FR)
It would be hard to imagine a sequel more faithful to its work of origin

It would be hard to imagine a sequel more faithful to its work of origin than this one/…/ Salander, though, emerges as the most dramatic, charismatic and effective investigator of them all: weak in social skills but unmatched in speaking blunt truth to corrupt power.
