“Salander and Blomkvist have survived the authorship transition intact and are just as compelling as ever . . . Fans of Stieg Larsson’s captivating odd couple of modern detective fiction will not be disappointed.” —Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
“Rest easy, Lisbeth Salander fans—our punk hacker heroine is in good hands . . . A twisty, bloody thrill ride . . . seamlessly woven together by Lagercrantz—in fact, if you hadn’t seen his name on the book jacket, you’d likely assume it was Larsson’s own handiwork . . . An instant page-turner.” —USA Today (4 out of 4 stars)
“Without ever becoming pastiche, the book is a respectful and affectionate homage to the originals . . . Lagercrantz’s continuation, while never formulaic, is a cleaner and tighter read than the originals.” —Guardian
“Lagercrantz has more than met the challenge. Larsson’s brainchildren are in good hands and may have even come up a bit in the world.” —Wall Street Journal
“What of Lisbeth Salander? Given that Lagercrantz knows she’s what readers want, her long and suspenseful introduction is masterful.” —Lee Child, New York Times Book Review (cover)
“A worthy, crowd-pleasing fourth installment . . . Lagercrantz, his prose more assured than Larsson’s, keeps Salander’s fiery rage at the white-hot level her fans will want.” —Publishers Weekly (starred)
“Lagercrantz does an excellent job . . . Anyone craving more Salander bad-assery should get their hands on a copy of Spider’s Web faster than Lisbeth can hack into the NSA.” —People
“Lagercrantz’s real achievement here is the subtle development of Lisbeth’s character; he allows us access to her complex, alienated world but is careful not to remove her mystery and unknowability. Lisbeth Salander remains, in Lagercrantz’s hands, the most enigmatic and fascinating anti-heroine in fiction.” —Financial Times
“Lagercrantz deftly blends the spirit of Larsson’s work and characters with his own literary skills and bright imagination. Spider’s Web is an intelligent novel that has Salander entangled in one of the most contentious issues of our times . . . Riveting . . . Pyrotechnic.” —Chicago Tribune
“A thrilling next installment . . . In spinning a complex and intriguing new chapter in the adventures of Blomkvist and Salander, Lagercrantz has written a worthy successor to one of the more uniquely compelling thriller sagas of his generation . . . An engrossing novel.” —Paste

“[A] smart, action-packed thriller that is true to the spirit of the characters Larsson created while adding interesting new ones and updating the political backdrop that made the Millennium series so compelling.” —Buffalo News
“Fans of the original trilogy will be pleased with Lagercrantz’s new installment. The novel is a smart, propulsive thriller and espionage tale with a timely digital age plot (think Snowden and Wikileaks).” —Hollywood Reporter
“Passion and fire, check: there are plenty of both here . . . Fast-moving, credible, and intelligently told. Larsson fans won’t be disappointed.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Lagercrantz pulls it off . . . One devours Larsson’s books for the plots, the action, the anger, and most of all for Lisbeth Salander, a character who resembles Sherlock Holmes or James Bond . . . Lagercrantz has caught her superbly.” —Daily Telegraph (UK)
“David Lagercrantz was set an almost impossible task by Stieg Larsson’s estate when they asked him to write a ‘continuation’ novel featuring Lisbeth Salander. He has carried it out with intelligence and vigour. The Girl in the Spider’s Web conveys the essence and atmosphere of Larsson’s Millennium novels. He has captured the spirit of their characters and devised inventive plots.” —The Times (UK)
“Fans of the original trilogy need not fear . . . The novel is well-researched and more intelligent than the average thriller.” —The Independent (UK)
“Lagercrantz makes sensible decisions in this fourth volume . . . . Blomkvist is given a cleverly and very contemporary storyline . . . A worthwhile read for anyone who’s zipped through the trilogy and finished wanting more.” —Daily Express (UK)
“Sometimes you almost forget that the spine of the book says David Lagercrantz and not Stieg Larsson . . . There is definitely the same narrative zest and love of intrigue, and also the impressive research . . . Lagercrantz has written a thriller that is captivating in its own right.” —Svenska Dagbladet (Sweden)
“A real page turner.” —Borås Tidning (Sweden)
“Lagercrantz has studied the first three parts of the series well, and the reader will recognize not only their Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander and the social criticism, but also other essential parts of the story’s DNA . . . David Lagercrantz has proven that he deserves both attention and respect. ” —Dagens Nyheter (Sweden)
“An excellent thriller . . . elegantly constructed.” —Stern (Germany)

I understand the writer's dilemma though. It wasn't his character or story to begin with, so anything that made him take a stand on it might have been interpreted as tinkering with the original creations of Lisbeth, Blomkvist et al. The publishers, therefore, might have preferred to play it safe. But unfortunately that has had the effect of dulling the story, almost making it look caricaturish. Even though a great effort, you don't gain anything form reading this book. I long for the old Lisbeth - - intriguing, unknowable, and gritty, moving forward at her own pace. She's done now, for her creator is dead. We will never know who she was; our imagination is all we are left with.
The book revolves around hacking and security systems and important data being hacked into. An A.I. techie named Fans Balder gets killed. He is survived by his 8 year old who happened to be in the same room on the night of the murder. Being autistic, nevertheless a savant and hence very important to poilce, all the action involves saving the boy from getting killed by the same villians.
David Lagercrantz has done justice to Lisbeth's character. Although I felt that she could have been a bit less vocative.
An aging Mikael Blomkvist gets his hand to a new story after a dry run. Whilst writing about Blomkvist, or mostly throughout the book, you cannot distinguish whether this came from Larsson or Lagercrantz.
The mystery is not as big and astounding as the author wanted us to seem.
However the ending - especially the part where Blomkvist has a conversation with Holmer Palmgren - Lisbeth's former guardian - is the most important and bright aspect of the book, perhaps the highlight of the book.
If I were to compare the 4 books in the series relative to each other, this one ranks with the second book - The Girl who Plaayed with Fire.
Needless to say, the first book still remains the best in the series.
At first the story is slow and there r lot of characters in the book who r difficult to remember.... But as the story progresses it starts to get interesting......
Good book if u r Larsson's fan.....
Story is great with a perfect ending with what next as always for the series. Lisbeth will be all time favourite for me. Great job from writer, brilliantly written, a must read.
