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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We couldn’t wait to see how David Lagercrantz would end his three-volume continuation of the late Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series. We’re pleased to report that The Girl Who Lived Twice wraps up the story even better than our fervent hopes. Genius hacker Lisbeth Salander has gone underground, shedding her punky hair and piercings to disguise herself as she hunts down her evil twin, Camilla. Meanwhile, crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist delves into the life of a mysterious homeless man who died with Blomkvist’s private phone number in his pocket. Russian mobsters, online troll farms, corrupt politicians, and a disastrous expedition on Mount Everest all figure into the fast-moving plot, which builds to a heart-stopping climax.
Swedish journalist Mikael Blomkvist takes center stage in Lagercrantz's exciting third addition to Stieg Larsson's Millennium series (after 2017's The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye). Lisbeth Salandar, the girl with the famous dragon tattoo, has been off traveling around Europe and not responding to Blomkvist's emails, which has left him working halfheartedly on a story about Russian computer trolls. Then he receives a phone call from a medical examiner who tells him a dwarf has been found dead on a Stockholm street with Blomkvist's phone number in his pocket. This is far more interesting than Russian trolls, and after Blomkvist enlists Lisbeth's help, she figures out that the man was not a dwarf, but a Sherpa, which leads them to a deadly Everest expedition involving the Swedish defense minister. When Blomkvist gets into trouble, Lisbeth comes to his rescue. Lisbeth's plan to kill her evil twin sister, Camilla, provides a diverting subplot. A tantalizing ending hints at important changes for Blomkvist and Lisbeth ahead. Series fans will be pleased with the thoughtful way Lagercrantz develops the character of their beloved action heroine in this worthy outing.

As always the book is great. Couldn’t put it down.
worst of the series
This book too convoluted which required too many subterfuges in order to make it work.
It was difficult to keep all the characters straight.
The book was a disappointment. Salander was barely even in the story. It was mostly composed of the Sherpa and setting up the plot seemed to go on for awhile. It wasn’t exciting at all.
