I only had mediocre feelings about this book going into it and I must say I was pleasantly surprised! When I heard that Stieg Larsson's estate had found someone to continue on his trilogy after the author's untimely death I had mixed feelings, how could someone even come close to capturing Lisbeth and Blomkvist?! Thankfully David Lagercrantz did a bang up job sticking to the mannerisms, wording, and character development of the original series and did a good job recreating Stieg Larsson's vision. A must read for fans of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Swedish thrillers. A faithful continuation.
