The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Is Back

Lisbeth Salander returns in the latest installment of the popular book series.

This week we welcomed back one of the most vibrant, complex, and bad ass characters in all of queer literature: the bisexual Swedish hacker, Lisbeth Salander.

In the latest piece of the Millennium saga, The Girl in the Spider's Web, Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist find themselves caught up in another maze of corruption, this time involving the NSA.

Stieg Larrson, the author of the original Millennium trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest), passed away in 2004. In his place, David Lagercrantz has taken over authorial duties and has weaved together a new riveting and suspenseful tale of sordid mystery.

Critics are thrilled with this continuation of the series. Publisher's Weekly calls it "a worthy, crowd-pleasing fourth installment" and Patrick Ryan of USA Today praises that it's "a twisty, bloody thrill ride." Critics have also complimented Lagercrantz for his new vision and direction of the series. Matt Lawson from the Guardian claims that this newest entry is a "respectful and affectionate homage to the originals . . . Lagercrantz's continuation, while never formulaic, is a cleaner and tighter read than the originals" while Michiko Kakutani of the New York Times says "fans of Stieg Larsson's captivating odd couple of modern detective fiction will not be disappointed."

The Girl in the Spider's Web hit shelves on September 1, 2015.
