Eye for an Eye: 15 Books for Fans of Lisbeth Salander

Last month, The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye, David Lagercrantz’s continuation of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy, came out to rave reviews and long waiting lists. “The legacy of Lisbeth Salander lives on in the fifth installment of the Millennium series,” wrote Michael Ruzicka in his Booklist review. “Once again, Lagercrantz succeeds in carefully staying true to the framework created by the late Stieg Larsson in his original trilogy, and fans can continue to follow their favorite hacker heroine from obscurity to notoriety to unsought fame and unwanted attention.”

Fans of the dark series will enjoy these other intense crime novels with a strong sense of place and characters they won’t soon forget.
