**********************************************************************************
THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO HAS FRESH OUTRAGE TO AVENGE

As Salander follows the scorched trail of her twin sister to Moscow, Blomkvist fears for her safety.

He should, perhaps, be more concerned for himself. The murder of a homeless man on the streets of Stockholm has drawn him into a conspiracy that scales the heights of Everest and plunges to the depths of Russia's criminal underworld.

And now Lisbeth will face her nemesis. For the girl with the dragon tattoo, the personal is always political - and ultimately deadly.

"A unique concoction that should leave Salander's legion of followers clamoring for more" Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal

Translated from the Swedish by George Goulding

Not at his best

When Lagercrantz took over Larsson after the original author died, he really did a magnificent job and I truly enjoyed the storylines and characters as I did initially. I was truly impressed.

Here, I have been confounded as I did not recognise Salander as the determined hardcore hero. There is an inner dimension that is now missing. As if after a few books, her essence had been distilled to extinction.

Also, the repetition of “that” back to back in sentences like “that that”, felt really awkward. It may be that the translation from Swedish to English was poor. Although there's not necessarily anything wrong with this, grammatically speaking, it still bothered me. Like a written stutter. It stopped me on my tracks, making me read the sentences over and over again, to see if I had missed a word. Only to realise it was just another “that that”.

I am not sure if I would buy the next book. If there were to be one.

She just burns down a house and goes away?

Such a lazy disappointing ending. I appreciate the situation around these books but it’s a real shame they ended so poorly. This whole book seemed rushed and not very well planned

Awful

I am a big fan of the original trilogy and enjoyed the two follow ups. It disappoints me to say however that this final instalment is simply a convoluted mess. While I could go on for days about the uninspiring, anti climactic plot and paper thin character development, I think the transformation of Salander into complete Mary Sue is what irks me the most. Larssons trilogy was subtlety exceptional and the first two follow ups were solid, good reads. The girl who lived twice has very little in the way of redeeming features and a sad end to a once outstanding series.
