“Expect many sleepless nights ahead. The Girl Who Lived Twice is a book to devour…Difficult, or near impossible to put down, the plot is lavish, complex, remarkably well-composed and filled with unbearable suspense.” —Le Parisien
“If this turns out to be, as Lagercrantz has suggested, the final instalment in the series, it’s going out on a resounding tonic chord… Salander is what she’s always been: a force to be reckoned with, and one of the most remarkable series leads in the history of crime fiction.” —Booklist starred review
“Nothing less of world-class in the thriller genre…The language sparks.” —Dagens Nyheter
“The Girl Who Lived Twice respects the original groundwork and brings perfect closure to what must be.” —Le Monde
“A murder mystery inside an espionage conspiracy wrapped in an action thriller—a unique concoction that should leave Salander’s legion of followers clamoring for more.” —Wall Street Journal
“If Lagercrantz strays into Smilla’s Sense of Snow levels of unlikelihood in weaving all these threads, he writes economically, and though he works ground he’s covered in his two earlier contributions to the series, disbelief suitably suspended, it all makes for good bloody fun. Formulaic, but it’s a formula that still works, as Salander and assorted bad guys spread righteous mayhem wherever they go.” —Kirkus
“Exceptional…Both good entertainment and a sharp criticism of society, in fictionalised form…What remains, when the last book comes to a close, is her, Lisbeth Salander. A riddle to us, as well as to herself. A fascinating character, created for eternity.” —Sydsvenska Dagbladet
“David Lagercrantz brings the Millennium series to an end with a novel that pares surly distraction and current politics with violent attraction and literary contemplation…(Lagercrantz has) added a sense of reflection that makes room for contemplation and prehistory.” —Göteborgs-Posten
“When Lagercrantz’ describes a romantic encounter ‘in desperation and homelessness’ between Lisbeth and her lover, or when he gives glimpses of Mount Everest where climbers frozen to death and impossible to retrieve, lie as proof of human folly, that is when he reaches beyond tickling the reader’s hunger for excitement.” —Upsala Nya Tidning
“A pacy read…while still finding room for some nice eccentric touches.” —Sunday Express
“[An] exciting third addition to Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series…A tantalizing ending hints at important changes for Blomkvist and Lisbeth ahead. Series fans will be pleased with the thoughtful way Lagercrantz develops the character of their beloved action heroine in this worthy outing.” —Publishers Weekly
