The adventures of Lisbeth Salander, the punk-goth vigilante hacker made famous in Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series, continues in this new adventure from the book by David Lagercrantz. In this new story, Lisbeth finds herself thrust into a dangerous underworld and forced to confront her shadowy childhood as she tracks down a powerful computer program that gives the owner the ability to take charge of nuclear weapons. Sweden’s stark, wintry landscape provides the perfect backdrop to the sleek, wiry black figure of Ms Salander and the time feels right for this unflinching #MeToo heroine.
