"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."
--Kirkus Reviews "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)
