Lisbeth Salander has been forged by a brutal childhood and horrific abuse. And repeated attempts on her life. The ink embedded in her skin is a constant reminder of her pledge to fight against the injustice she finds on every side. Confinement to the secure unit of a women's prison is intended as a punishment. Instead, Lisbeth finds herself in relative safety. Flodberga is a failing prison, effectively controlled by the inmates, and for a computer hacker of her exceptional gifts there are no boundaries. Mikael Blomkvist makes the long trip to visit every week - and receives a lead to follow for his pains, one that could provide an important expose for Millennium: Salander tells him to check out Leo Mannheimer, a seemingly reputable stockbroker from Stockholm, somehow connected to the long-ago death of a child psychologist - and to the psychiatric unit where Lisbeth was an involuntary patient as a child. Lisbeth knows she is coming closer to solving the mysteries of her early life; and even within the confines of the prison, she feels the deadly influence exerted by her twin sister. Salander will stand up for what she believes in. She will find out the truth. Whatever the cost.

It was good up until halfway and then it became ridiculously predictable.

I have read both of the books written by David Lagercrantz continuing the saga created by Stieg Larsson about Lisbeth Salander. Neither of those come even close to matching the late Larsson's writings! Both books left me with the feeling that they were very disjointed in the flow of the story and not that exciting as were the books written by Mr. Larsson. How this latest book The Girl Who Takes An Eye For An Eye has ended up on the best sellers list is beyond me. It is probably because, like me, people were hoping this book would be more like the originals which were awesome. I will not bother reading any new books by David again.
