Meet Lisbeth Salander, the iconic character who has captivated 100 million readers worldwide.

"Salander remains, in Lagercrantz's hands, the enigmatic and fascinating anti-heroine in fiction" Financial Times

"Salander and Blomkvist have survived the authorship transition intact and are just as compelling as ever" New York Times

LISBETH SALANDER IS AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE

Sentenced to two months in a women's prison for saving a young boy's life by any means necessary, she refuses to say anything in her own defence. She has more important things on her mind.

Mikael Blomkvist makes the long trip to visit every week - and receives a lead to follow for his pains. And not just any lead, but one that could unlock the secrets of Salander's childhood.

Even in prison system, Salander will will never stop seeking the truth, driven by a childhood memory of a woman with a blazing birthmark on her neck. As if it had been burned by a dragon's fire...

MEDIA REVIEWS

Some fictional characters prove too popular to die . . . Such is the case with Lisbeth Salander . . . Lagercrantz is doing a wonderful job. It would be hard to imagine a sequel more faithful to its work of origin than this one, which emulates the spirit and the style of the original trilogy. - Wall Street Journal

Expertly told, the plot crackles with life - Daily Mail

Lagercrantz's latest Salander novel, is even bolder - if somewhat more fantastical . . . Larsson had grand ambitions for his Millennium series, projecting a total of 10 novels. In Lagercrantz's hands, the series is realizing grand ambitions of another sort . . . The Girl Who Takes an Eye for An Eye intensifies the mythic elements of Larsson's vision. - Washington Post

Lagercrantz doesn't falter in the mayhem department . . . Larsson fans certainly won't be disappointed. - Kirkus Reviews

Lagercrantz's excellent second contribution to Stieg Larsson's Millennium series . . . twisting plot lines tie together in this complicated, fascinating mystery. As a bonus, readers learn the meaning of the dragon tattoo on Lisbeth's back. - Publishers Weekly

Lagercrantz's compassion for the underdog adds genuine emotion to his baroque plotting. There is much to admire in the way he has grasped a tricky assignment - to continue one of the big­gest hits of recent years. Roll on the next "girl" - South China Morning Post

There are some good things about The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye. For a start it's well written. Lagercrantz's prose is simple, precise and so easy on the eye that chapters fly past in a single sitting.... More
