Book Recommendation: The Girl in the Spider's Web by David Lagercrantz

 

The Girl in the Spider's Web  (2015) by David Lagercrantz is a sequel to the Millennium series of crime novels by Stieg Larsson. This series included The Girl with the Dragon Tattoos, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. Dolores and I recommend all four of these novels for your reading list.

 

“In December 2013, the Swedish publishing company  Norstedts  announced that Lagercrantz had been contracted to write the fourth novel in the Millennium series of crime novels, originally by Stieg Larsson (1954–2004). The novel was published at midnight August 26-27, 2015, around the ten-year anniversary of the first Millennium novel. According to the publisher, the book is a stand-alone sequel based on Larsson's characters, but has not made use of the incomplete book manuscripts and notes he left behind. Lagercrantz, however, stated in an interview with Aftonbladet that he had picked up some of the unfinished plot threads from the published novels.  The draft was reported as finished by Lagercrantz in January 2015. The Swedish title is Det som inte dödar oss, literally translated "That Which Does Not Kill Us". The English language title is The Girl in the Spider's Web.” - Wikipedia

 

The Girl in the Spider’s Web – Goodreads Review

She is the girl with the dragon tattoo—a genius hacker and uncompromising misfit. He is a crusading journalist whose championing of the truth often brings him to the brink of prosecution.

Late one night, Blomkvist receives a phone call from a source claiming to have information vital to the United States. The source has been in contact with a young female superhacker—a hacker resembling someone Blomkvist knows all too well.

The implications are staggering. Blomkvist, in desperate need of a scoop for Millennium, turns to Salander for help. She, as usual, has her own agenda. The secret they are both chasing is at the center of a tangled web of spies, cybercriminals, and governments around the world, and someone is prepared to kill to protect it . . . 

The duo who captivated millions of readers in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest join forces again in this adrenaline-charged, uniquely of-the-moment thriller.
