The first entry into the second trilogy of "The Girl . . . " series doesn't quite have the verve of the first three novels, but after a slow start -- which may just be a difference in Lagercrantz's style from that of the original author, Stieg Larsson, things do begin to pick up as the plot and action develop. Of course, with more involvement of the main character -- Lisbeth Salander -- the story definitely begins to pick up more lustre. All in all, a satisfying read that makes me want to move on to the next volume in the series.
