  • Rerun

    By Beechesnoho
    The entire plot felt like a rerun of an old movie. Sorry end to a enjoyable series.
  • Enjoyable read

    By MRapp1965
    Despite some of the other negative reviews I enjoyed the book very much. Seemed to me that the characters were still very much in line with the characters in previous 3 books despite the different author. I’m def no critic just a simple reader but I honestly enjoyed this book and look forward to the next book and hopefully more after that.
  • Don't waste your time with this

    It seems the writer larsons estate chose for this book was inexperienced, boring and completely missed any attempt at continuing to develope any of the characters from the trilogy. I gave it a chance which resulted in feeling ripped off by the Larson estate. This book is about capitalizing on a good writers talent by using a cheap minor talented hack to generate some quick cash. Horrible

    Great entertainment period! The characters are very much intact. It was great fun to read again of the exploits of Mz Salander!

    I've loved Lisbeth Salander since the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. This book was a nice addition to the three I've already read. I loved the info about August and autism, especially pertaining to savants. The ending makes both her and Mikael a little more human and seals their relationship status. Good book!
  • Good but not Stieg Larson

    By neogirl727
    I was excited to see a continuation of Steig Larson's books. However the book lacked Larson's details & intensity. There should have been details on Salander's return from the ending of Larson's last book. I would have liked more detail on what Zander gave up & more on Camilla instead of her just disappearing. It was all too neat & tidy. Larson was not neat & tidy. He gave you the feeling of waiting to turn the page to find out what happens next. Salander was too tame. Hopefully there's more to come.

    Although it was a bit shorter than all of the other books in the series, I thought it was very good. Style was similar to Larsson's, which was good too.
  • If you expect the genius that was Lars, move on

    By Atodd80
    There were moments of this book I liked, I felt a connection to the characters that I had from the previous stories. But as it unfolded, the magic that was his style, very direct and dissociated, was not there. He unfolded the story for the reader, allowed the characters to bring you in. I could feel this authors sometimes heavy push towards emotion, he wasn't content to allow the story to bring about the feelings of the reader, but rather, tried, like many movies, to push the emotions onto the participant. I'm not a nostalgic person, I don't appreciate when an author tries to force feelings that may not be warranted. As far as a story, it wasn't bad.
  • Disappointing book in great series.

    By bilmich
    I loved the first three books. I could not put them down. This last book had little drama, no good story to tell and little mystery. It just wasn't a good. Two stars is generous. I'm very disappointed.
  • Icing on the Cake

    By artsycowgirl
    I really enjoyed reading what I thought was the final book of this series but with a few loose ends I am thinking another installment might happen. My favorite part was the ending. I would have enjoyed seeing A little more of a relationship between the main characters. Overall, well done.
