The sixth in the Millennium series featuring THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO - 100 million copies sold worldwide. "What are you going to do now?" "I will be the hunter and not the hunted." Lisbeth Salander's mentor and protector Holger Palmgren is dead, and she has been gone from Stockholm since his funeral. All summer, Mikael Blomkvist has been plagued by the fear that Salander's enemies will come after her. He should, perhaps, be more concerned for himself. In the pocket of an unidentified homeless man, who died with the name of a Swedish government minister on his lips, the police find a list of telephone numbers. Among them, the contact for Millennium magazine and the investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist. Following the scorched trail of her twin sister Camilla to Moscow, Salander nevertheless continues to watch over her old friend. Soon Blomkvist will need her help. But first, she has an old score to settle; and fresh outrage to avenge. The next episode in David Lagercrantz's acclaimed continuation of Stieg Larsson's Dragon Tattoo series is a thrilling ride that scales the heights of Everest and plunges the depths of Russia's criminal underworld. In a climax of shattering violence, Lisbeth Salander will face her nemesis. For the girl with the dragon tattoo, the personal is always political - and ultimately deadly.

A free sample of sixth in the Millennium series featuring THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO More than 100 million copies sold worldwide "What will you do now?" "I shall be the hunter and not the hunted" The girl with the dragon tattoo is finally ready to confront her nemesis, the only woman who is evidently and in many ways her match. Salander will not wait to be hunted. When she strikes it will be a double blow: vengeance for recent atrocities, and the settling of lifelong scores. For months now Salander has been closing in on her target. She has moved from Stockholm, her hair is newly styled, her piercings are gone. She could pass for any other businesswoman. But not all businesswomen have a Beretta Cheetah beneath their jacket. They do not wield the lethal power of a hacker's genius. They do not carry scars and tattoos to remind them that they have survived the unsurvivable. The new episode in David Lagercrantz's acclaimed, internationally bestselling continuation of Stieg Larsson's Dragon Tattoo series is a thrilling ride that scales the heights of Everest and plunges the depths of Russian troll factories. It begins with the discovery of Mikael Blomkvist's number at Millennium magazine in the pocket of an unidentified homeless man who died with the name of a government minister on his lips. Blomkvist, at extreme risk to himself, tracks down his old friend and will protect her as far as he can. But he is powerless to crush her enemies on his own. And for Lisbeth Salander, the personal is always political - and deadly.

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO IS BACK WITH A UK NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist have not been in touch for some time. Then Blomkvist is contacted by renowned Swedish scientist Professor Balder. Warned that his life is in danger, but more concerned for his son's well-being, Balder wants Millennium to publish his story - and it is a terrifying one. More interesting to Blomkvist than Balder's world-leading advances in Artificial Intelligence, is his connection with a certain female superhacker. It seems that Salander, like Balder, is a target of ruthless cyber gangsters - and a violent criminal conspiracy that will very soon bring terror to the snowbound streets of Stockholm, to the Millennium team, and to Blomkvist and Salander themselves. The Girl in the Spider's Web is book four in the Millennium series. Book five, The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye, was published in September 2017. The Girl Who Lived Twice - the final novel in the series by David Lagercrantz - is available to preorder now.

A Painter's Tragedy and Triumph Revealed With the recent surge of the American painter's popularity, Elizabeth Sparhawk-Jones: The Artist Who Lived Twice captivates readers by revealing little-known details about the journey of a woman (1885-1968) almost forgotten by the art world if not for an accidental discovery. As a golden girl of the art world-christened by New York critics as its "find of the year" in 1908, Elizabeth Sparhawk-Jones, still in her teens, sold her American impressionism-style paintings for the equivalent of about fifty thousand dollars today. From a prominent family, she won nearly every award including the highest honor of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, two years study in Europe. In her notebook, she scribbled a quote by Walt Whitman: He only wins who goes far enough...And then, she disappeared. In a time when mental illness is associated with devil possession, Sparhawk-Jones leaves behind everything she's gained from her life-long devotion to painting. Reeling from two sudden deaths and a stolen fortune-along with being caught in a changing art world, she collapsed behind the doors of a hospital for the insane for the better part of three years. Attributing to her breakdown, she suffers the harsh blow of being forced to refuse the Academy's highest honor that awards a year's travel to study art in Europe. Her parents, a Presbyterian minister and his devout wife, refuse to entertain the idea that their daughter and her Jewish romantic interest, the yet-to-be discovered Morton Schamberg, would be abroad at the same time. What may have killed others makes Elizabeth Sparhawk-Jones only fight harder to regain what she'd lost. She loves only the most unattainable, like Edwin Arlington Robinson, the enigmatic Pulitzer Prize-winning poet who offers a strange reciprocation of her love; she believes in those sometimes hardest to love, like painter Marsden Hartley, who desired her friendship for perhaps less than virtuous reasons. With her famous wit and candor, she attracted admirers as much for her temperament as her fierce loyalty. Collectors and friends included film star Claude Rains, writer F. Scott Fitzgerald, and master painter William Merritt Chase among many others. Thirty years after her breakdown, American Artist magazine would call her "a phenomenon in the world of paint," painter Marsden Hartley would write she was "a thinking painter with a rare sense of the drama of poetic and romantic incident," and her works would belong to some of the country's most prestigious museums and collections, yet her story has nearly become forgotten. Structured around her last interview given to the Smithsonian Archives of American Art in 1964, The Artist Who Lived Twice tells of Sparhawk-Jones's tumultuous journey as one of the first women to carve out a place for herself in American art. The toll may have been higher than she ever imagined, but she held no regrets. She saw God when she painted, she believed, and what more could one ask?

This is a tale about a girls dream and how she makes it come true through her own actions. She is brave, she is undoubtedly bolder than is good for her, and she achieves incredible rewards for the risks she takes. Her success is linked irrevocably to how she relates to the people who surround herand without them none of it would have been possible. Samantha Jones is a girl with a passion for ships, and she has always dreamed of going to sea. Fed by stories her uncle told since she was a little child, her dream takes her into adventures little girls rarely get to experience. Against all odds, she braves repeated rejections until, by dint of her own ingenuity, boldness and wit, she wangles a job as cabin boy on The Lady Leeward, a clipper ship engaged in trade with the Far East. The book is not an account of day-to-day life aboard ship, of the command structure or even how the sailors perform their tasks. Rather, it touches mainly on events as they involve Samantha, such as her visits when the ship makes landfall and the people who make each stop memorable. It is clear from the start that Samantha might be in over her head, though she doesnt understand this point at the time. Each day of the voyage brings her up against something thought provoking, and puzzling them out is her main occupation. At times she stumbles, for instance, over how it feels to go against so many of her mothers prohibitions. At others, her attempts to figure out how to relate to her new found shipboard friends bear confusing fruit. Always and in everything she tries to do, her deception looms over her, threatening impending discovery and the end of her dream. The tale of her adventures is a multi-layered account of a young girls transformation. Right at the beginning, she changes, almost before your eyes, from a mid-19th century girl into a rather tough-looking young sailor and manages to maintain this charade for an entire ocean voyage to China and backwell, almost all the way back, but that comes later. On the way, she struggles to deal with the guilt of leaving her family, even though she rationalizes that they will be better off without the extra mouth to feed. She also feels guilty for deceiving the people on the ship, since she lives the lie every day, and for her actions when she leaves her friend Michael wondering why she behaves as she does. In the process, she learns that there are consequences to be lived with from these decisions, and the lessons transform her from the child following rules laid down by others into a person of understanding who chooses responsibly for herself. Encountering the seamen aboard ship, entering new places and situations, meeting people with different cultures and languagesall these events change Sam Jones from a nave, unsophisticated city girl into an awakened, enlightened, world traveler. As important as it is, the physical transformation that turns a girl into a woman is almost lost to notice amid all the adventures she experiences. At the end of her adventures, Sam, her dream fulfilled, is happy to be Samantha Jones once again--and more than ready to meet whatever life brings her way. Samantha dreams, Shell always have dreams, And the ship will still fly with the wind.
