    It seems the writer larsons estate chose for this book was inexperienced, boring and completely missed any attempt at continuing to develope any of the characters from the trilogy. I gave it a chance which resulted in feeling ripped off by the Larson estate. This book is about capitalizing on a good writers talent by using a cheap minor talented hack to generate some quick cash. Horrible

    Great entertainment period! The characters are very much intact. It was great fun to read again of the exploits of Mz Salander!

    I've loved Lisbeth Salander since the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. This book was a nice addition to the three I've already read. I loved the info about August and autism, especially pertaining to savants. The ending makes both her and Mikael a little more human and seals their relationship status. Good book!
  • Good but not Stieg Larson

    I was excited to see a continuation of Steig Larson's books. However the book lacked Larson's details & intensity. There should have been details on Salander's return from the ending of Larson's last book. I would have liked more detail on what Zander gave up & more on Camilla instead of her just disappearing. It was all too neat & tidy. Larson was not neat & tidy. He gave you the feeling of waiting to turn the page to find out what happens next. Salander was too tame. Hopefully there's more to come.

    Although it was a bit shorter than all of the other books in the series, I thought it was very good. Style was similar to Larsson's, which was good too.
  • If you expect the genius that was Lars, move on

    There were moments of this book I liked, I felt a connection to the characters that I had from the previous stories. But as it unfolded, the magic that was his style, very direct and dissociated, was not there. He unfolded the story for the reader, allowed the characters to bring you in. I could feel this authors sometimes heavy push towards emotion, he wasn't content to allow the story to bring about the feelings of the reader, but rather, tried, like many movies, to push the emotions onto the participant. I'm not a nostalgic person, I don't appreciate when an author tries to force feelings that may not be warranted. As far as a story, it wasn't bad.
  • Disappointing book in great series.

    I loved the first three books. I could not put them down. This last book had little drama, no good story to tell and little mystery. It just wasn't a good. Two stars is generous. I'm very disappointed.

    I really enjoyed reading what I thought was the final book of this series but with a few loose ends I am thinking another installment might happen. My favorite part was the ending. I would have enjoyed seeing A little more of a relationship between the main characters. Overall, well done.

    This is a great book, but it has a slow start. The plot is really good but The first half of the book focuses way too much new characters, especially the local police and government security. I actually skipped about 30 pages of the police interactions with each other. Even with that criticism, the girl in the spiders web is an awesome book. The second half moves fast in this classic Lizbeth. Don't be like me, and write a review without finishing the book. Like me you're have to go back and rewrite your review. The author did a great job of carrying on the legacy. Hopefully he will get more focused in the second book we're just not kill us with the side stories about people who really aren't that interesting While you're waiting for the next book Martyn Halm's Katla Amsterdam Assassin series is an awesome way to spend the time.Halm's attention to detail and development of his character Katla or well thought out and organic. In the beginning I thought Katla was just a knock off of Lisbeth, but she is so much more. By the third book I thought she had a lot more depth. I actually started confusing the story lines. No need to compare the two, but while waiting for the next Lisbeth Book this is a great way to spend the time.
