The Girl in the Spider's Web: A Lisbeth Salander Novel is the fourth novel in the Millennium Series by David Lagercrantz. This book follows Lisbeth Salander, a Swedish hacker who, while looking into her father and sister's criminal empire, uncovers information about ties between a criminal organization, the National Security Agency (NSA), and a massive technology corporation.

Prominent scientist, Franz Balder, recently learned his autistic son, August, is being abused by his stepfather, Lasse Westman. Balder travels from the United States to Sweden in order to retrieve the boy from his mother, actress Hanna Balder. The boy has been neglected and not received the proper care because Westman and Hanna used Balder's child support money on other things.

Balder and August stop at a streetlight. August has a silent, but strongly emotional reaction to a man on the street who Balder later learns is a friend of Westman's, who participated in abusing August....

Don't waste your time with this just read the book instead, It should be made more clear that this is only a review.

David Lagercrantz was disappointing

I struggled to finish and listen to this book. I was disappointed because all previous books that were narrated by Simon Vance were spectacular.

This is not the actual book

I was disappointed as I also had bought this was the actual book. Did not intend to waste my 1st and also free book on a review of 30 min, when the choice was so big.

Wish I could get a refund

This is a summary & analysis of the girl in the spiders web. Had I known I would not have bought it. Narrator is not good at all. Messes up names and puts you to sleep. Wish I could get a refund!

The Girl in the Spider Web

This was a big disappointment. I paid $5.35 for a review of the book. I thought I was buying the actual book for audible. I’ll certainly be more careful in the future.
