THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO IS BACK WITH A UK NUMBER ONE BESTSELLERLisbeth 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.
Those who spy on the people end up themselves being spied on by the people. There’s a fundamental
democratic logic to it.
This book is personally my favorite out of the series. Right now I’m really obsessed with all things hacker. My favorite show is Mr. Robot, we have the NSA hacks and now the DNC hack. Hacking is all around us right now. It would be stupid of us to brush what is happening under the rug.
The Girl In The Spider’s Web brings to the forefront what hackers and the rest of the world are truly capable of. They can bring down our banking systems, hold people’s personal information hostage until a ransom is paid or they can and are using it for corporate espionage.
This book explains all that can and does happen in a easy to digest way. It has all kinds of technical information that you can apply to your everyday life, but does it while reading an incredible suspenseful book. The pace of this book is definitely faster than the previous.
In the book you get to learn about hacking, savants, quantum mechanics, black holes, investigation and the NSA. It’s all very interesting and makes for a great read. 5 stars!
