After all that happened in the last book, Lisbeth is in jail. In a high security prison to be more precise. However, not everybody is safe there either…
Meanwhile, Mikael Blomkvist investigates the strange changes about Leo Mannheimer…

 

The Rating:
First of all, let me talk about Stieg Larsson’s legacy. When David Lagercrantz continued the Millenium series I had second thoughts but he surprised me with The Girl in the Spider’s Web.
