Girl in the Spider’s Web by David Lagercrantz

I am a big fan of the Millennium series of Swedish crime novels written by Stieg Larsson.

Punk super hacker Lisbeth Salander is one of the most compelling characters in modern fiction.

I actually like Mikael Blomkvist too.

Both the Swedish and America film versions were excellent as well.

Stieg Larsson died of a heart attack in 2004.  So The Girl in the Spider’s Web (original title in SwedishDet som inte dödar oss, literally “That which does not kill us”) is the fourth novel … written by David Lagercrantz.

Lagercrantz was given free rein by Larsson’s estate. Personally I think this book is better than the first three.

The plot is action packed: hackers, an autistic boy genius, Lisbeth’s twin sister.

Click PLAY or watch the trailer of the 2018 film version on YouTube. This film doesn’t seem to have much to do with the book, however.

And it lost money at the box office. AND it’s only 41% on Rotten Tomatoes. I’d still like to see it.
