Book Review: “The Girl in the Spider’s Web”

   The Girl in the Spider’s Web
   David Lagercrantz

Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist are back!  At the start of The Girl in the Spider’s Web, someone has hacked into the National Security Agency and a Swedish computer genius and his autistic son are in danger.  Will journalist Blomkvist, who is desperately in need of a scoop, and uber hacker Salander, who may have a secret agenda, find the connection between these events?

I’m a big fan of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series and was saddened by original author Stieg Larsson’s passing because I thought there wouldn’t be any more Girl books.  However, new series author David Lagercrantz brings back all of our familiar players, even the minor ones, delves more deeply into their lives, and stays true to (what I believe is) Larsson’s original characterizations.  He also does a great job emulating Larsson’s writing style.  If you loved the original series, you’ll love The Girl in the Spider’s Web!
