|From The Publisher*||From the author of the mega bestseller The Girl in the Spider's Web: the new book in the Millennium series, which began with Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo|
|Review Quote*||A Barnes and Noble Reads Best Thrillers of 2017 selection|
"Wonderful . . . It would be hard to imagine a sequel more faithful to its work of origin than this one. . . . Salander, though, emerges as the most dramatic, charismatic and effective investigator of them all: weak in social skills but unmatched in speaking blunt truth to corrupt power."
-The Wall Street Journal
"Engrossing . . . arresting . . . imbued with a grit and gumption that would make Larsson proud."
"The enduring draw at the center of the Millennium series is that image of a strange and solitary young woman trying to even the score with all manner of bullies by dint of her brains and, when called for, some martial arts moves."
-The Washington Post
"Like The Girl in the Spider's Web, this book is a worthy successor to Larsson's trilogy. But, The Girl Who Takes an Eye also feels like a tipping point, in which Lagercrantz begins to march the saga in a direction all his own."
"Somewhere, beyond the grave in the Great Hereafter, Stieg Larsson must be smiling. . . . Swedish journalist and author David Lagercrantz has produced a multilayered and even better thriller this time around in his second outing continuing Larsson's Millennium series, crafting an intricate web of intrigue. . . . Lagercrantz is a master."
-The Buffalo News
"Hacker extraordinaire Lisbeth Salander and crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist do social good as the thrills accelerate in The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye. They're a winning couple."
"Lagercrantz's excellent second contribution to Stieg Larsson's Millennium series [is a] complicated, fascinating mystery."
-Publisher's Weekly (starred review)
"Always satisfying . . . Lisbeth, as always, serves as an avenging angel who herself isn't the nicest of people."
"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."
-Booklist (starred review)
"Expertly told, the plot crackles with life." -Daily Mail
"Lagercrantz's compassion for the underdog adds genuine emotion to his baroque plotting. There is much to admire in the way he has grasped a tricky assignment - to continue one of the biggest hits of recent years. Roll on the next "girl."" -South China Morning Post
