The Girl in the Eagle’s Talons

Organised crime stalks the landscapes of northern Sweden. Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist are older but are they wiser and more skilful in fighting back?

In the seventh part of the Millennium thriller series begun by Stieg Larsson, the action shifts north and the male gaze is replaced by a female one. The Norrbotten region of Sweden is a magnet to sinister incomers as its rich natural resources start to generate vast flows of money. Environmental forces pull politicians and locals in different directions and the traditional Sami way of life is under threat.   Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist, each brought to the area by family commitments, find themselves at the eye of the storm as people dear to them become targets.
