Summary

An Audie Award Finalist for Best Mystery Narration

Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award

New York Times bestseller

From the author of the #1 international bestseller The Girl in the Spider’s Web comes another in the Millennium series, which began with Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Lisbeth Salander is back with a vengeance.

Lisbeth Salander, the girl with the dragon tattoo, the brilliant hacker, the obstinate outsider, the volatile seeker of justice for herself and others—even she has never been able to uncover the most telling facts of her traumatic childhood, the secrets that might finally, fully explain her to herself. Now, when she sees a chance to uncover them once and for all, she enlists the help of Mikael Blomkvist, the editor of the muckraking, investigative journal Millennium. And she will let nothing stop her—not the Islamists she enrages by rescuing a young woman from their brutality; not the prison gang leader who passes a death sentence on her; not the deadly reach of her long-lost twin sister, Camilla; and not the people who will do anything to keep buried knowledge of a sinister pseudoscientific experiment known only as The Registry.

Once again, Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist, together, are the fierce heart of a thrilling full-tilt novel that takes on some of the most insidious problems facing the world at this very moment.

Review Quotes

“While the author of the blockbuster Millennium series has changed, Simon Vance has been the consistent narrator of the audiobooks. Vance created the voices and masterfully embodies the personalities of the indomitable computer hacker Lisbeth Salander, the journalist Mikael Blomkvist, and the other characters whom listeners have followed through the series…Vance’s extraordinary talent comes through in the tense dramatic scenes involving a research study of twins gone awry and in his special ability to differentiate men, women, young, and old from all over the globe. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

AudioFile

“Wonderful. It would be hard to imagine a sequel more faithful to its work of origin than this one..[Salander] emerges as the most dramatic, charismatic and effective investigator of them all: weak in social skills but unmatched in speaking blunt truth to corrupt power.”

Wall Street Journal

“Imbued with a grit and gumption that would make Larsson proud.”

USA Today

“The enduring draw at the center of the Millennium series is that image of a strange and solitary young woman trying to even the score with all manner of bullies by dint of her brains and, when called for, some martial arts moves.”

Washington Post

“Somewhere, beyond the grave in the Great Hereafter, Stieg Larsson must be smiling…Swedish journalist and author David Lagercrantz has produced a multilayered and even better thriller this time around in his second outing continuing Larsson’s Millennium series, crafting an intricate web of intrigue…Lagercrantz is a master.”

Buffalo News (New York)

“This book is a worthy successor to Larsson’s trilogy. But, The Girl Who Takes an Eye also feels like a tipping point, in which Lagercrantz begins to march the saga in a direction all his own.”

Paste magazine

“Lagercrantz succeeds in carefully staying true to the framework created by the late Stieg Larsson…In this new world where everything is suspect, including proclaimed facts, it is the dragons that protect and avenge the downtrodden.”
