The Girl in the Eagle's Talons: A Lisbeth Salander Novel by Karin Smirnoff
This seventh installment in the Millennium series sees punk computer hacker Lisbeth Salander assume temporary custody of a 13 year old niece, in a small town in Northern Sweden, with a sudden spate of murder, disappearances, and municipal corruption.
This is the first book in the series written by a woman; an interview in The Guardian is what induced me to pick up this propulsive thriller. You can see the review here.
