Girl in the Spider’s Web by David Lagercrantz

R325.00

Like anyone else, I read and loved the Stieg Larsson trilogy and as result I approached this book with a degree of scepticism: thankfully it was unwarranted. Lagercrantz has done a superb job in continuing the characters created by Larsson, namely those of Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist. In fact, he adds depth to our knowledge of Lisbeth’s personality, without losing her sense of mystery. The story briefly: Blomkvist meets with a potential source to discuss a tip for an article, and in passing the existence of a female hacker is mentioned. As Blomkvist gets more involved the story gets bigger and bigger. A world-renowned Swedish computer scientist is attacked before he can meet him, his vital work is stolen and the only witness is an autistic child who then becomes a target for a criminal organisation. The pace is sustained, the writing and the character’s are great and the plot is intelligent…my only hope is that Lagercrantz continues the story!

Description

Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist have not been in touch for some time. Then Blomkvist is contacted by renowned Swedish scientist Professor Balder. Warned that his life is in danger, but more concerned for his son’s well-being, Balder wants Millennium to publish his story – and it is a terrifying one. More interesting to Blomkvist than Balder’s world-leading advances in Artificial Intelligence, is his connection with a certain female superhacker. It seems that Salander, like Balder, is a target of ruthless cyber gangsters – and a violent criminal conspiracy that will very soon bring terror to the snowbound streets of Stockholm, to the Millennium team, and to Blomkvist and Salander themselves.
