“Wonderful . . . It would be hard to imagine a sequel more faithful to its work of origin than this one. . . . Salander, though, emerges as the most dramatic, charismatic and effective investigator of them all: weak in social skills but unmatched in speaking blunt truth to corrupt power.”
—Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal
“Engrossing . . . arresting . . . imbued with a grit and gumption that would make Larsson proud.”
—Patrick Ryan, USA Today
“The enduring draw at the center of the Millennium series is that image of a strange and solitary young woman trying to even the score with all manner of bullies by dint of her brains and, when called for, some martial arts moves.”
—Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post
“Like The Girl in the Spider’s Web, this book is a worthy successor to Larsson’s trilogy. But, The Girl Who Takes an Eye also feels like a tipping point, in which Lagercrantz begins to march the saga in a direction all his own.”
—Ed Swedlund, Paste magazine
“Somewhere, beyond the grave in the Great Hereafter, Stieg Larsson must be smiling. . . . Swedish journalist and author David Lagercrantz has produced a multilayered and even better thriller this time around in his second outing continuing Larsson’s Millennium series, crafting an intricate web of intrigue. . . . Lagercrantz is a master.”
—Jean Westmoore, The Buffalo News
“Hacker extraordinaire Lisbeth Salander and crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist do social good as the thrills accelerate in The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye. They’re a winning couple.”
—Carlo Wolff, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“Lagercrantz’s excellent second contribution to Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series [is a] complicated, fascinating mystery.”
—Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)
“Always satisfying . . . Lisbeth, as always, serves as an avenging angel who herself isn’t the nicest of people.”
“The legacy of Lisbeth Salander lives on. . . . Lagercrantz succeeds in carefully staying true to the framework created by the late Stieg Larsson. . . . In this new world where everything is suspect, including proclaimed facts, it is the dragons that protect and avenge the downtrodden.”
—Michael Ruzicka, Booklist (starred review)

1. When stepping into a world with already developed and universally beloved characters, DON'T try to change the characters. Mr. Lagercrantz seems unable to resist writing the characters profoundly "against type." It doesn't work.
2. When trying to emulate the style of another writer, try harder. The meager attempt by Mr. Lagercrantz to write in the style of Mr. Larsson seems half-hearted at best. Perhaps Mr. Lagercrantz feels that writing in another's style is somehow beneath him, and that his own efforts should be more than sufficient. They aren't. Even a brief reading of the Lagercrantz manuscript by a group familiar with Mr. Larsson's books could have provided sufficient feedback to avoid the most egregious of the errors. As published, however, this "Eye for an Eye" book is simply cringe-inducing.
3. Use a coherent plot. The storytelling is disjointed to the point of being deliberately confusing. At a point two thirds of the way through the book, the reader is still left wondering what the plot is supposed to be, whom the significant characters are, and why the book is worth finishing.
David Lagercrantz - Either do justice to the original characters or create your own book series. Your treatment of Stieg Larsson's creations is demeaning not only to you but also to those of us who love Mr. Larsson's works. If you can't do better than "The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye," then please decline the option of continuing this series and let another author make their attempt. We readers deserve better.
