Meet Lisbeth Salander, the iconic character who has captivated 100 million readers worldwide. "Salander remains, in Lagercrantz's hands, the enigmatic and fascinating anti-heroine in fiction" Financial Times LISBETH SALANDER IS AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE Sentenced to two months in a women's prison for saving a young boy's life by any means necessary, she refuses to say anything in her own defence. She has more important things on her mind. Mikael Blomkvist makes the long trip to visit every week - and receives a lead to follow for his pains. One that could unlock the secrets of Salander's childhood. Even in prison system, Salander will stand up for what she believes in, whatever the cost. And she will never stop seeking the truth, drive by a childhood memory of a woman with a blazing birthmark on her neck - as if it had been burned by a dragon's fire . . . "Salander and Blomkvist have survived the authorship transition intact and are just as compelling as ever" New York Times Translated from the Swedish by George Goulding
