Before. Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home.

The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . .

After. Nothing is ever the same.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web

The Girl in the Spider’s Web by David Lagercrantzspidersweb

‘Lagercrantz has constructed an elegant plot around different concepts of intelligence … [his] continuation, while never formulaic, is a cleaner and tighter read than the originals … Without ever becoming pastiche, the book is a respectful and affectionate homage to the originals’ Mark Lawson, Guardian.

‘As I read Lagercrantz’s The Girl in the Spider’s Web, I found that I kept forgetting for several pages at a time that I wasn’t reading genuine Larsson … One devours Larsson’s books for the plots, the action, the anger, and most of all for Lisbeth Salander … Lagercrantz has caught her superbly, and expertly spun the sort of melodramatic yarn in which she can thrive’ Jake Kerridge, Daily Telegraph.

‘Fans of Stieg Larsson’s captivating odd couple of modern detective fiction – the genius punk hacker Lisbeth Salander and her sometime partner, the crusading investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist – will not be disappointed … Salander and Blomkvist have survived the authorship transition intact and are just as compelling as ever’ Michiko Kakutani, New York Times.

‘Rest easy, Lisbeth Salander fans – our punk hacker heroine is in good hands … Swedish crime novelist David Lagercrantz takes the reins with prowess, not only mimicking Larsson’s shamelessly pulpy prose, but admirably expanding the deliciously depraved world of the novels’ Patrick Ryan, USA Today.
