A chilling new DRAGON TATTOO thriller

“Lisbeth Salander is back – and maybe better than ever . . . Remarkable” LEE CHILD

“Fresh, fearless, faithful and original . . . I loved it” CHRIS WHITAKER

Change is coming to Sweden’s far north: its untapped natural resources 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. She has been named guardian to her niece Svala, whose mother has disappeared. Two things soon become clear: Svala is a remarkably gifted teenager ­- and she’s being watched.

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.

A pulse-pounding thriller, The Girl in the Eagle’s Talons sees Salander and Blomkvist navigating a world of conspiracy and betrayal, old enemies and new friends, snow-bound wilderness and the global corporations that threaten to tear it apart.

Upsala Nya Tidning
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
Gefle Dagblad
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
Skånska Dagbladet
As Karin Smirnoff takes the baton from David Lagercrantz she proves that she is exactly the right writer
Lee Child
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.
Chris Whitaker
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.
Jo Spain
An absolute incident-packed thrill-ride from start to finish. Karin has taken on the legacy of a legend and done the series justice.
Anna Bailey
Smirnoff's writing is wonderfully vivid. If books were birds, this would be a raptor diving towards its prey with brutal agility.
Barry Forshaw, Financial Times
[A] highly readable - and still ferocious - addition to the Millennium sequence
Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail
This seventh book featuring the iconoclastic, anarchic Lisbeth Salander is the first to be written by a woman, and it is all the better for it - not least because one of the principal themes of the series is violence towards women . . . [T]his legendary crime series is, thankfully, back in safe hands
Alan Jones, Independent
Lisbeth Salander is alive and well, and embroiled in another thrilling adventure laced with danger, violence and enemies old and new . . . Fans of the heroic hacker Salander and ageing hack Blomkvist will not be disappointed
Myles McWeeney, Irish Independent
A breathlessly exciting debut
Natasha Walter, Literary Review
A satisfying drama . . . Smirnoff has allowed Salander greater warmth than Larsson ever did, which makes her both more credible and more appealing . . . Plenty of hot topics provide the background to the plot, but it is the well-told personal stories that drive the novel.
Jon Coates, Sunday Express
A thrilling adventure through a snowbound wilderness, with biting social commentary that Larsson would have been proud of.
