The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye, David Lagercrantz
Lisbeth Salander, the girl with the dragon tattoo, the brilliant hacker, the obstinate outsider, the volatile seeker of justice for herself and others—even she has never been able to uncover the most telling facts of her traumatic childhood, the secrets that might finally, fully explain her to herself.
Now, when she sees a chance to uncover them once and for all, she enlists the help of Mikael Blomkvist, the editor of the muckraking, investigative journal Millennium. And she will let nothing stop her—not the Islamists she enrages by rescuing a young woman from their brutality; not the prison gang leader who passes a death sentence on her; not the deadly reach of her long-lost twin sister, Camilla; and not the people who will do anything to keep buried knowledge of a sinister pseudoscientific experiment known only as The Registry.
Once again, Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist, together, are the fierce heart of a thrilling full-tilt novel that takes on some of the most insidious problems facing the world at this very moment.
"Engrossing...arresting...imbued with a grit and gumption that would make Larsson proud." --Patrick Ryan, USA Today

"The legacy of Lisbeth Salander lives on...Lagercrantz succeeds in carefully staying true to the framework created by the late Stieg Larsson...In this new world where everything is suspect, including proclaimed facts, it is the dragons that protect and avenge the downtrodden." --Michael Ruzicka, Booklist (starred review)
