Publisher's Summary

The sixth Lisbeth Salander story in the Millennium Series - the crime-fiction phenomenon that has sold more than 90 million copies worldwide.

Mikael Blomkvist is trying to reach Lisbeth Salander - the fierce, unstoppable girl with the dragon tattoo. He needs her help unraveling the identity of a man who died with Blomkvist's phone number in his pocket - a man who does not exist in any official records and whose garbled last words hinted at knowledge that would be dangerous to important people. But Lisbeth has disappeared. 

She's sold her apartment in Stockholm. She's gone dark. She's told no one where she is. And no one is aware that at long last she's got her primal enemy, her twin sister, Camilla, squarely in her sights. 

In the end, it will be Blomkvist - in a moment of unimaginable self-sacrifice - who will make it possible for Lisbeth to face the most important battle of her life, and, finally, to put her past to rest.

I cant get enough

Captivating and attention grabbing. I didnt take my ear buds out until i had finished the entire thing. (no wonder I'm now grounded for ignoring my mother)

I crave more amd will more than likely rebinge on this serious in a few weeks or so.

Lightweight trifle, but maybe this is what sells

I was optimistic about this novel and the narrator was excellent. However the story felt more and more contrived as it went on and in the end I was left somewhat disappointed. This is more for young teenagers than adults and maybe that is what they were aiming for.

Not the Lisbeth novel of the past

Other than the rushed conclusion to Camila, this book reads almost like a filler episode of a tv series.

Way to complicated

The plot was convoluted and hard to follow. Not enough lisbeth or mikael. Half the length of the originals and half as good.

I’m sorry...No!

I love this series so I pre-ordered. Where is Lisbeth? We see her but not nearly enough and she is not nearly as complicated, as interesting, as bad ass! There were several stories being told but the one that took front and center...so many characters that were not interesting at all, I could not find interest in their secret. Started out so good but for me it crashed. I’m sorry, was positive I would love it but... no.

Not nearly as good as previous ones.

It was hard to care about the characters or what was transpiring. It was Simon Vance who kept it going, but in the end, disappointing is the best description.

A letdown

I want Lizbeth. This book had very little of her. The story, like the previous book by this author, did not tie in with Lizbeth’s story. I doubt I’ll tune in again. So very sad that Stieg Larsson passed away - his Lisbeth is not being done justice, IMP

So Disappointed

I loved all of the books in the Millennium Series but this one was just disappointing. It seemed too coincidental the entire book, everything was too easy and noticeable. It was so boring I barely wanted to finish it. Salander was such a different character in this book compared to the ones previously. I always thought of her as someone who thought things out and was smart, not someone who was hot headed and couldn't control her anger. Everything about this book was boring and disappointing. I had pre-ordered in February and was counting down the days until I could finally listen and I was just so disappointed. I would not recommend this book to anyone I know. All the other books I've listened to 3 to 5 times repeatedly, but this one was hard to listen to even once.

No longer the series I love

This series has been a disappointment ever since David Lagercrantz took over. I am not one to normally leave reviews but this book was the most disappointing thus far. I struggled to finish this for so long as the plot and characters were so hard for me to invest my time in. It feels as though Lisbeth and Mikael have become secondary characters as the books have progressed. No longer are the deep storylines that intertwine the two and their worlds. It's sad to see one of my favorite series and set of characters amount to the story development that has happened over the last few books. I cannot say I'm interested in what happens next.

Wasn't up to par.

Very let down. Felt like David was struggling to fill pages for a deadline. Too many details, not enough story.

Disappointed

This latest Lisbeth Salander novel is a huge letdown. It lacks the edginess and excitement of the other books. Trite and predictable.

Muddled and disappointing.

Perfect vocal performance, as usual, but unconvincing and boring plot lines bordering on Preston Child or David Baldacci. The whole book should have been more like the last hour (except the ridiculous last 5 minutes). Pre-packaged for mass distribution but doesn’t hold a candle to prior iterations. I hope there is another novel in this series because otherwise this is a (fairly) pathetic send-off for some of this decade’s most beloved characters. Run of the mill at best.

Eh

I always look forward to the next Salander escapade.. This one didn't make it. Too many people on Everest and not enough Lizbeth. He has the correct issues Nepal,Everest, Russian internet intrusions.but didn't delve deep enough.
Probably 3 stars is too much.
