In The Girl in the Spiderâ€™s Web, Swedish author David Lagercrantz continues Stieg Larssonâ€™s series featuring Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist.
Stieg Larsson passed away in 2004. So, like many popular series over the years that have lost their original authors, a new writer has been brought on to continue the popular Millennium series. From USA Today to People Magazine, critics agree that David Lagercrantz, an experienced journalist and author, channels Larssonâ€™s world with aplomb.
The story begins a few years after we left Salander and Blomkvist in The Girl Who Kicked the Hornetâ€™s Nest. Struggling to remain a relevant investigative journalist, Blomkvist is in desperate need of a scoop. Then, one night, he receives a call that leads him down a dangerous path. That path begins with a bloody murder. The only witness is an autistic boy. Blomkvist recruits Salander to help him with the case, and, from there, the story becomes a tangled, thrilling ride.
