NPR * USA Today * O, The Oprah Magazine * Esquire

A genius hacker who has always been an outsider. A journalist with a penchant for danger. She is Lisbeth Salander, the girl with the dragon tattoo. He is Mikael Blomkvist, crusading editor of Millennium. One night, Blomkvist receives a call from a source who claims to have been given information vital to the United States by a young female hacker. Blomkvist, always on the lookout for a story, reaches out to Salander for help. She, as usual, has plans of her own. Together they are drawn into a ruthless underworld of spies, cybercriminals, and government operatives--some willing to kill to protect their secrets.

Look for The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye featuring Lisbeth Salander, coming September 12th.
