The Girl in the Spider's Web
The bad news is that Stieg Larsson, creator of the beguilingly complex Lisbeth Salander—introduced in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo—died before he could experience the cosmic embrace that greeted the first three books in the Salander series. The good news is that Lagercrantz, a journalist hand-chosen by Larsson's family, has picked up where the late author left off, delivering a thrillingly layered book every bit as addictive as the originals.
