This, the 4th Lisbeth Salander thriller, did not disappoint. The technical aspects of the story were a bit of a challenge, but that is to be expected when the main character is a super-hacker. The new author of the series, taking over from Steig, has done a nice job carrying the story forward. And I love the references to Avenger superheroes. On to installment #5.....

Not as good as the other 3, rather anti-climatic in all honesty. But still worth it if you really enjoyed the original series. ( )

I enjoyed the original trilogy, but i was concerned that after the death of the author, the replacement author would fall short in keeping the tone of the stories right and, of course, in writing a worthy continuation. My fears were unfounded. The tone remains exactly as it should and this story is just as compelling as the first 3. It's also helpful that Simon Vance continues as the narrator for the series. I can wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed the original trilogy. The main characters remain, as do the essential elements of the back story, and the back story is ever so slightly fleshed out in a few areas. ( )

I rated this book as if it weren't part of the Millennial trilogy. The basis of the story, a technological breakthrough that leads to a criminal conspiracy involving NSA and world safety, is strong. Also, the books has many of the same elements as the original series--several sets of characters including Blomkvist and Salander, but it just doesn't have the same punch as the originals. At first the pacing and disparate threads reminded me a great deal of the first book, but they just never really came together the same way. Also, the characters lack the level of engagement and development that are in the originals. I often found myself having to go back and refresh to remember who was who. Finally, the ending seemed to rushed and anti-climactic. ( )

Book description
Late one night, Blomkvist receives a phone call from a source claiming to have information vital to the United States. The source has been in contact with a young female superhacker—a hacker resembling someone Blomkvist knows all too well. The implications are staggering. Blomkvist, in desperate need of a scoop for Millennium, turns to Salander for help. She, as usual, has her own agenda. The secret they are both chasing is at the center of a tangled web of spies, cybercriminals, and governments around the world, and someone is prepared to kill to protect it . . . 

The duo who captivated millions of readers in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest join forces again in this adrenaline-charged, uniquely of-the-moment thriller.
