Simon Vance returns to reunite Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist in the inaugural installment of the latest Millennium trilogy. Smirnoff resurrects familiar characters and introduces Svala, the daughter of Salander's evil late half-brother. Salander's journey to northern Sweden to care for the precocious 13-year-old coincides with Blomkvist's visit to the same town to visit his daughter and grandson. Add to that many new characters, good and evil--mostly evil--and this multilayered mystery told from multiple points of view becomes a challenging listen. The series' trademark violence veers toward the extreme, occasionally overshadowing the characters' relationships. Vance's skill in distinguishing characters and weaving tension throughout the narrative ensures that listeners remain engaged. E.Q. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2023]
