Publisher's Summary

Mikael Blomkvist is contacted by renowned scientist Professor Balder. Fearing for his life, but more concerned for his son's well-being, Balder wants Millennium to publish his story.
More interesting to Blomkvist than Balder's advances in Artificial Intelligence, is his connection with a certain female superhacker.
It seems that Lisbeth Salander, like Balder, is a target of ruthless cyber gangsters that will soon bring terror to the streets of Stockholm, the Millennium team, and Blomkvist and Salander themselves.

Not what I hoped for.

I know a little of the story behind Steig Larsson's legacy and how his estranged family apparently seized on their rights, but I did not really care too much as I have a fond memory of the Millenium trilogy as enjoyable, if sometimes slightly cartoonlike, thrillers. I felt like something easy to listen to and I was not about to let authenticity or ownership worry me. It had been a while so I thought I'd see what the chosen writer did with the characters to move the series on.
Mistake.
It seems to me, admittedly at half way through, that Instead of going his own way Lagercrantz has reproduced the formula almost exactly. (Magazine under pressure, corruption at Sepo, Solander's far fetched family at the heart of all evil again, etc). This over familiarity, combined with long passages of narrative expo given in the authors own voice as unrealistic dialogue, and the habit of seeing every moment of significance from every point of view possible, just bored me to death.

Cynical.

As good as the first 3

Would you consider the audio edition of The Girl in the Spider's Web to be better than the print version?

The actor did an excellent job reading, enjoyed listening it. For my time schedule the audio suits much better as I have time to listen in the car or while doing the garden, however because of the excellent performance, I recommend this to anyone. I think he is also easy to follow for non-native listeners, like myself.


What did you like best about this story?

It was a continuation of the original series, with the same characters. I was reading the first 3 books long time ago, but the book landed me instantly back in Sweden where those books left me...


Have you listened to any of Saul Reichlin’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Not yet, but will for sure
