"Lisbeth Salander is back - and maybe better than ever . . . Remarkable" LEE CHILD
"Fresh, fearless, faithful and original . . . I loved it" CHRIS WHITAKER
The untapped natural resources of Sweden's far north are sparking a gold rush, with the criminal underworld leading the charge. But it's not the prospect of riches that brings Lisbeth Salander to the small town of Gasskas. Her niece's mother is the latest woman in the region to have vanished without trace. Two things soon become clear: Svala is a remarkably gifted teenager -- and she's being watched.
Journalist Mikael Blomkvist is also heading north. He has seen better days. Millennium magazine is in its final print issue, and relations with his daughter are strained. Worse still, there are troubling rumours surrounding the man she's about to marry. When the truth behind the whispers explodes into violence, Salander emerges as Blomkvist's last hope.
The new thriller from Karin Smirnoff will submerge you in a world of conspiracy and betrayal, old enemies and new friends, snow-bound wilderness and corporate greed. Lisbeth Salander is BACK.
Letting Karin Smirnoff take over the baton after David Lagercrantz is a stroke of genius. It is hard to believe anyone could have done it better than Smirnoff. Unless it would have been Stieg Larsson himself - Upsala Nya Tidning
As Karin Smirnoff takes the baton from David Lagercrantz she proves that she is exactly the right writer - Skanska Dagbladet
Fresh, fearless, faithful and original. Karin Smirnoff takes on a heady challenge and makes a stylish, exciting and truly worthy statement. One of the great crime series of our time could not be in safer, more capable hands. I loved it.
Lisbeth Salander is back - and maybe better than ever. Karin Smirnoff's take is both respectful of the past and ready for the future - altogether remarkable.
A really, really good crime novel. It is also a serious and successful attempt to keep Stieg Larsson's legacy alive and allow fiction to tackle crucial truths about our time - Gefle Dagblad
