    David Lagercrantz

    Wow! Just got an email that David Lagercrantz, the Swedish writer who penned the wonderful 'The Girl in the Spider's Web', a continuation of the late Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy, is going to be in town on Tuesday to sign 'The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye'.

    Larsson's trilogy, which began with the posthumously published 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo', has sold 80 million copies worldwide, and deservedly so; Larsson was an incredibly gifted writer, and his heroine, Lisbeth Salander, one of the most original and memorable characters in recent literature. Lagercrantz's first continuation novel was brilliant, and fans of the Millennium series have been seriously jones-ing for another.

    Wow, that was two years ago - it doesn't seem like it. Meeting Lagercrantz was wonderful. I don't know why, but I imagined that he'd be some stuffy, very serious type, and he was anything but. Funny, animated - kind of a nut, but in a good way.

    His second Millennium series book, 'The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye' was as perfect as the first, and every bit as worthy a follow up to Steig Larsson's original trilogy as 'The Girl in the Spider's Web' - which later became a movie.

    Updating this thread because I just discovered that Lagercrantz published yet another entry in the series - 'The Girl Who Lived Twice' - last August. (Something else that I somehow missed while I was in recovery mode from the pneumonia.) He told us back when he visited Scottsdale in 2017 that he planned to only do three, as he has his own characters to write about, but I think the unanimous opinion of fans of the series would be that he shouldn't stop.

    And if you enjoy a good story - mystery, suspense, police procedural, what-have-you...these books have it all - and you've never read 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' or any of its sequels, you're missing out. MOST highly recommended.

    Superior Minds Indoctrinated With an Inferiority Complex


    The intentionally and desperately freaky genius-girl gives High IQs a bad image. This is mandated by the plutocracy, which makes its family fortunes off making creative geniuses depressed and escapist. I notice the book shows that Sweden is run by HeirHeads, which is why its fake humanitarianism should be called "Socialite Socialism." From each according to his abilities and nothing extra for himself.
