What's Hot: The Girl in The Spider's Web
Fans of the Millennium series by Stieg Larsson are now getting a new installation (book#4) to add to this international best selling saga by Swedish journalist and author David Lagercrantz. A big set of shoes to fill by Mr. Lagercrantz, I think. Early reviews of the book are looking kind of on the fence some stating we won't be disappointed (Amazon Reviewers) by the newest addition in the series, others more harshly criticizing the attempt (Goodreads reviewers) The New York Times review also seems to be a bit of a lukewarm reception.
There seems to be speculation of an unfinished manuscript...
So my question is...
I would like to know if there is an unfinished unpublished manuscript, when it will be published if at all and who will be worthy of the task? Stieg Larsson has been gone for more than 10 years now...I'm just saying
When will it be available to us regular folks?...
With staggered release dates, some as early as Aug 27 it looks like US book patrons will be able to purchase the book on September 1st. Pricing will range between $11-$16
Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist return as the sometimes unconventional and not so dynamic duo once again as they take on a new case in the fourth installment written by Swedish journalist David Lagercrantz.
Genre: Crime thriller
She is the girl with the dragon tattoo—a genius hacker and uncompromising misfit. He is a crusading journalist whose championing of the truth often brings him to the brink of prosecution.
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 super hacker—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, cyber criminals, 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.
I highly suggest that you read the previous books or at least watch/ read the movies on Netflix in the foreign films sections so you have a good understanding and feel for the story. Pack a lunch and your reading glasses because it is translated so there will be reading involved... I just lost some of you didn't I...and the movies are about 2.5-3 hours long. I have personally never watch the US adaption as I just felt it would be wrong and probably just piss me off and somehow tarnish the effort and subsequent badge of honor of eyestrain from reading/watching the movies for hours.
Just in case you have no clue about the series...
There are very violent scenes of rape and violence. I was not forewarned so I am doing you a solid here. Trust me.
Perhaps it will read well as a stand alone...
Trust me, Lisbeth and Blomkvist are two characters who you really want to immerse yourself in their dark and bloody past to appreciate where this newest caper will take you. Get the trilogy that started the international phenomenon:
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
The Girl Who Played With Fire
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
This is definitely going on my #TBR list. I will be stalking Goodreads to see what my She Readers think about this newest book .
