This the fourth novel of the Millennium series which is titled “The Girl In the Spider’s Web” written by David Lagercrantz which is set to hit bookshelves on Sept. 1st later this year.
Keep in mind that before Stieg Laarsson passed away, he wanted to keep the Millennium series going. So I guess they’re keeping the series going in honor of him ’cause this is probably what he wanted. I know the Lisbeth Salander stories won’t be the same without Larsson writing them but I’ll still give this book a shot.
The question is can these stories survive without Larsson? Many would think they won’t but I think it’s a possibility that the next book will be a best seller like the first three were. So yeah, I think the Lisbeth Salander stories will continue to thrive but I’m sure a lot of fans would still prefer Larsson writing them. I’m sure there’s a lot of fans would think that these books shouldn’t continue without Larsson but hey? Think about it, the Jason Bourne book series continued after Robert Ludlum died by a different writer of course.
I’ll give the next book a read but if I don’t like it, I’ll probably stop reading them. While I’m sure Lagercrantz tried his best to make fans happy, I’m sure the writing styles will be a little different, though.
Like a lot of people I’m a huge fan of the Lisbeth Salander stories too so I’ll see how the next book is gonna be.
