Mikael Blomkvist is contacted by renowned scientist Professor Balder. Fearing for his life, but more concerned for his son's well-being, Balder wants Millennium to publish his story. More interesting to Blomkvist than Balder's advances in Artificial Intelligence, is his connection with a certain female superhacker. It seems that Lisbeth Salander, like Balder, is a target of ruthless cyber gangsters that will soon bring terror to the streets of Stockholm, the Millennium team....

this book was eagerly awaited but was very disappointing. the narration was very irritating with a frustrating slow pace and over pronouncing of almost every word. was continuously thinking get on with it. I wish I had a pound for every time the word suddenly was used or the phrase as yet.
the story didn't help matters. boring and ponderous.

It’s November 1956. The world is in turmoil, the Suez Crisis and the Hungarian Uprising boiling away in the background. Lennox, though, has more immediate concerns, like getting his personal life and his business back on track. In a bid to stay out of trouble, he’s looking for more legitimate cases. Anything’s better than working for the Three Kings, the crime bosses who run Glasgow’s underworld. When a woman comes into his office and hires him

I've read the whole Lennox series several times and they never lose their appeal. superb story, brilliant characters and the best narrator in the business. a modern classic

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

The basic problem with this book was that its plot needed you to suspend logical thinking to make the story work. The characters were all stereo-types. I think if you were new to crime fiction this book could put you off for good.

Has Stalkers put you off other books in this genre?

There are some great books available on audible in this genre but unfortunately this isn't one of them.

How could the performance have been better?

Yes much better. If you compare it to a Sean Barrett narration you will quickly see why it didn't measure up.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

not that I can think of
