I hope Lizbeth Salander appreciates her ongoing adventures have been ably chronicled by David Lagercrantz. Not that appreciation is her strong suit. I was so distraught when I realised that Steig Larsson had died. So how excited was I that a fourth book in the series was announced. When it became available I placed it ahead of all my other pending reviews. The edginess that made the first three books so successful is still there. The writing style is a little less journalistic than before but I think it enhances the reading experience rather than detracting. The book rolls along faster than a freight train and just as unstoppable. It has everything including a seriously underrated savant who nearly steals the limelight. I am not sure if it is just me but it still seems odd that the plot is resolved three quarters of the way through and then the rest is all about cleaning up and setting the scene for the future. I think I like that. We need more of August the savant please Mr Lagercrantzt. I am also desperately hoping it will not take another decade for another instalment.
