Millennium 5 on The New York Times Bestseller list

David Lagercrantz is currently on a long tour for the release of the fifth instalment in the Millennium series, The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye. We just learnt that the book will be on second place on the New York Times Bestseller list next week – after only one week on the shelves.

And we won’t stop at that – the reviews keep coming in from all over the world:

“Somewhere beyond the grave in the Great Hereafter, Stieg Larsson must be smiling: Lisbeth Salander, his “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” is still avenging injustice, hacking files, kicking butts and exposing corruption with the help of unlikely partner, investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist.

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 that includes a prison gang, Islamist extremists, Salander’s evil twin Camilla and a cruel, top-secret pseudoscientific experiment.”

– The Buffalo News

“In Lagercrantz’s hands, the series is realizing grand ambitions of another sort. The Girl Who Takes an Eye for An Eye intensifies the mythic elements of Larsson’s vision […]moves the series further into the realms of Star Wars and Harry Potter”

– The Washington Post

“Lagercrantz is one of the best in the genre […] keeps building on the foundation laid by Stieg Larsson, with excellent result”

– Svenska Dagbladet
