The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest captured our imaginations and turned Lisbeth Salander into a literary heroine. But after Stieg Larsson's sad passing we thought we had seen the last of Lisbeth and her fight against injustice.

But now thanks to David Lagercrantz we have a new entry in the Millennium series and the return of Lisbeth and crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist. In the series of videos below, Lagercrantz reveals how he came to continue the book, the new characters he created and the most difficult scenes to write in The Girl in the Spider's Web.
