"Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist return."
Q: Was it as good as the original series by Stieg Larsson?
A: Of course not.
Q: So, how good was it then?
A: Loved every minute of it.
Q: Then what was missing?
A: The pleasure of meeting those unforgettable characters for the first time and watching them find each other and themselves. But reading this latest one by Lagercrantz was terrific—like traveling to Paris again some years after your first magical visit. Not to be missed.

A genius hacker who has always been an outsider. A journalist with a penchant for danger. She is Lisbeth Salander, the girl with the dragon tattoo. He is Mikael Blomkvist, crusading editor of Millennium. One night, Blomkvist receives a call from a source who claims to have been given information vital to the United States by a young female hacker. Blomkvist, always on the lookout for a story, reaches out to Salander for help. She, as usual, has plans of her own. Together they are drawn into a ruthless underworld of spies, cybercriminals, and government operatives--some willing to kill to protect their secrets.
