THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO LIVES ON. Lisbeth Salander is an unstoppable force: Sentenced to two months in Flodberga women's prison for saving a young boy's life by any means necessary, Salander refuses to say anything in her own defence. She has more important things on her mind. Mikael Blomkvist makes the long trip to visit every week - and receives a lead to follow for his pains. For him, it looks to be an important expose for Millennium. For her, it could unlock the facts of her childhood. Even from a corrupt prison system run largely by the inmates, Salander will stand up for what she believes in, whatever the cost. And she will seek the truth that is somehow connected with her childhood memory, of a woman with a blazing birthmark on her neck - that looked as if it had been burned by a dragon's fire . . . The tension, power and unstoppable force of The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye are inspired by Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy, as Salander and Blomkvist continue the fight for justice that has thrilled millions of readers across the world. Translated from the Swedish by George Goulding

David Lagercrantz's bestselling trilogy continues the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, the crime phenomenon that thrilled tens of millions of readers around the world. In The Girl in the Spider's Web, Blomkvist is contacted by a renowned Swedish scientist, Professor Balder, who fears that his life is in danger. He wants Millennium to publish his story. Balder's world-leading research in Artificial Intelligence has made him a target of ruthless cyber gangsters - and a violent criminal conspiracy that will bring terror to the snowbound streets of Stockholm, and to Blomkvist and Salander themselves. In The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye, Lisbeth Salander is an unstoppable force. From inside a corrupt prison run largely by the inmates, she will stand up for what she believes in, whatever the cost. Blomkvist is given a lead for an important exposé for Millennium which could unlock the facts of Salander's childhood, somehow connected with the memory of a woman with a blazing birthmark that looked as if it had been burned by a dragon's fire . . . In The Girl Who Lived Twice Salander has fresh outrage to avenge. She follows the scorched trail of her twin sister to Moscow. Blomkvist fears for her safety, but he should be more concerned for himself. The murder of a homeless man on the streets of Stockholm has drawn him into a conspiracy that scales the heights of Everest and plunges to the depths of Russia's criminal underworld. And now Lisbeth will face her nemesis. For the girl with the dragon tattoo, the personal is always political - and ultimately deadly.

Swedish journalist Stieg Larsson planned ten installments in his Millennium series before his untimely death. The three novels he did write, beginning with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, had energy, spectacular violence, and superb plotting. Larsson's weird, sometimes clunky prose style, forgotten because there was real chemistry, even empathy, between his two stars, the journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the computer hacker Lisbeth Salander. The series made a fortune and, as no good deed goes unpunished, it has become a franchise. The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye is the second installment wrote by the Swedish biographer and novelist David Lagercrantz and translated by George Goulding. The Girl in the Spider's Web (2015) sold very well, and this new publication appeared with a full blockbuster treatment. Dysfunctional heroines are familiar in thrillers, as are also layers of gendered trauma, but Larsson's Salander was a fabulous, surprising character, who is a feminist superhero, an Amazonian queen, a pretty girl who fought back. Obsessive and antisocial, forged in the environment of violence she experienced as a child. She took the kind of revenge on rapists and pedophiles that most only fantasize about, taking on powerful, corrupt men with lawless violence. With Blomkvist, she was the charismatic half of one of the oddest but most useful and compelling crime fiction couples. Blomkvist, the old-school social justice fighter with a penchant for losers and a hatred of social hypocrisy, presented a perfect complement. The Girl Who Took an Eye for an Eye is the vision of the appalling things made to Salander when she was a child, but the story rambles between a bewildering collection of storylines that never come together. The novel starts with Salander in prison for unconvincing reasons. When she does wander onto the page, she gets banged up or does stuff on her computer, but continues ghostly and uninhabited. The writer commits the cardinal thriller sin of telling rather than revealing what she does. There are long, mansplaining sections about genetics and social research that made me pray to Elmore Leonard, the god of economic thriller writing, who famously disclosed that writers should "try to drop out the part that readers tend to jump." Lagercrantz has all the components of the Millennium series at his disposal, but the adrenaline is refraining Lagercrantz has turned Larsson's eccentric and feral feminism into a simple inversion. This time there are two female arch-villains after Salander. One is an aging, ailing Mad Scientist with a doctor's bag of syringes and lethal poisons determined that will reveal nothing of her social eugenics programme. The other is a ludicrously cartoonish gang boss who ends up hospitalized by Salander's quick hands working with a pair of dangerous brothers, Islamists, who have hired her to beat their jailed and silent sister. There are also, identity-switching twins who make the antics of Viola and Sebastian in Twelfth Night seem ordinary and many indications to Salander's evil twin. The reader observes that Salander and Blomkvist have a desire for equity, but because we employ so little time in the close description with the book's hero, it is not valid. There is a lethargy to the developing, and much of the balance relies on orchestrated interruptions and pauses, which irritate. Lagercrantz has all the components of the Millennium series at his disposal, but the adrenaline is not there.

"I shall be the hunter and not the hunted" The girl with the dragon tattoo is finally ready to confront her nemesis, the only woman who is evidently and in many ways her match. Salander will not wait to be hunted. When she strikes it will be a double blow: vengeance for recent atrocities, and the settling of lifelong scores. For months now Salander has been closing in on her target. She has moved from Stockholm, her hair is newly styled, her piercings are gone. She could pass for any other businesswoman. But not all businesswomen have a Beretta Cheetah beneath their jacket. They do not wield the lethal power of a hacker's genius. They do not carry scars and tattoos to remind them that they have survived the unsurvivable. The new episode in David Lagercrantz's acclaimed, internationally bestselling continuation of Stieg Larsson's Dragon Tattoo series is a thrilling ride that scales the heights of Everest and plunges the depths of Russian troll factories. It begins with the discovery of Mikael Blomkvist's number at Millennium magazine in the pocket of an unidentified homeless man who died with the name of a government minister on his lips. Blomkvist, at extreme risk to himself, tracks down his old friend and will protect her as far as he can. But he is powerless to crush her enemies on his own. And for Lisbeth Salander, the personal is always political - and deadly.

June 8, 1954. Alan Turing, the visionary mathematician, is found dead at his home in sleepy Wilmslow, dispatched by a poisoned apple. Taking the case, Detective Constable Leonard Corell quickly learns Turing is a convicted homosexual. Confident it's a suicide, he is nonetheless confounded by official secrecy over Turing's war record. What is more, Turing's sexuality appears to be causing alarm among the intelligence services - could he have been blackmailed by Soviet spies? Stumbling across evidence of Turing's genius, and sensing an escape from a narrow life, Corell soon becomes captivated by Turing's brilliant and revolutionary work, and begins to dig deeper. But in the febrile atmosphere of the Cold War, loose cannons cannot be tolerated. As his innocent curiosity takes him far out of his depth, Corell realises he has much to learn about the dangers of forbidden knowledge.
