"Lisbeth Salander--the fierce, unstoppable girl with the dragon tattoo--has disappeared ... And no one is aware that at long last she's got her primal enemy, her twin sister, Camilla, squarely in her sights. Mikael Blomkvist is trying to reach Lisbeth. He needs her help unraveling the identity of a man who lived and died on the streets of Stockholm--a man who does not exist in any official records and whose garbled last words hinted at possible damaging knowledge of people in the highest echelons of government and industry. In his pocket was a crumpled piece of paper with Blomkvist's phone number on it. Once again, Salander and Blomkvist will come to each other's aid, moving in tandem toward the truths they each seek"--Dust jacket flap.… (more)

This 6th book in the Millennium series featuring Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist focuses mainly on events that transpired years ago involving a disastrous Mount Everest expedition, politics, and Russian troll factories.

The other line of the plot deals with Lisbeth and her twin sister, Camilla. It seems that Camilla wants revenge by killing her.

The story is told in alternate viewpoints and skips all over the place from past to present. Unfortunately, this whole concept was not as exciting as I have come to expect from this series and I was a bit disappointed at the pace. The plot was quite convoluted and it seemed that Lisbeth and Mikael were only minor side characters involved in old spy stuff.

I got this book from a friend and have the next installment (by a new author) in my TBR, but I think I need a break. ( )

A fan of the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, I've found the sequels written by this author lackluster. With this story, he's done a good job researching areas like genetics, added new characters and brought back the memories of Zalachenko's physical abuse of his wife and daughters. Bringing Lisbeth's sister, Camilla in as the antagonist is somewhat of a twist, one we hadn't seen in the past. Adding Inspector Bublanski and Modig along with flashbacks from the original series, it seems obvious the goal was similar energy of the originals. When compared to best selling crime/suspense novelists, his pace is slow until the final chapters where it picks up rapidly. He tends to overuse dialog; use of detailed meal descriptions that have little to do with the story seems amateur, though it's possible the translator is at fault. Since Stieg Larsson set a high bar for these characters, Lagercrantz has yet to achieve it, this story included. ( )

Entertains a little while, but it feels very clear to me that Lagercrantz has nothing more to say and is really stretching the Millennium story. ( )

Helt ok. Ibland är en historia faktiskt slut, färdig. Den här var det efter de tre första böckerna. David har dragit runt ett lik men med det sagt så har det ju ändå varit rätt trevligt. ( )

»Lagercrantz hat es geschafft, die auf menschlichen Abgründen fußende Millennium-Welt des Stieg Larsson in die Ära von Fake News und Online-Verleumdungskampagnen zu heben.«
