Millennium: The Girl Who Danced with Death
The Girl Who Danced with Death by Sylvain Runberg, is the next Lisbeth Salander story in the Millennium series, originally by Stieg Larsson. In the form of a graphic novel, the intensity of this story does not disappoint. A politician named Sten Windoff is running as a right-wing extremist, with rumors of a Nazi past that needs to be proven by Mikael Blomkvist and his group of journalists at Millennium. After a period of silence, Lisbeth Salander, aka Wasp, gets back in contact with Blomkvist to help; in exchange, she needs his help to find her friend Trinity, an ally in their cyber group known as Hackers Republic. Trinity has been kidnapped by a group of extremists, so it’s up to Salander to save her and use any help she can get from her friends to expose their enemies and the truths they are hiding.
I am knowledgeable of the Millennium series, so picking this book to read was not a problem, however, if you are not familiar with Lisbeth Salander, it would be best if you started at the beginning and enjoyed reading her previous encounters with the Swedish government. As a graphic novel, the storyline goes much quicker and the pictures within each frame are well done. The title is appropriate, given Salander’s track record, and makes the reader expect as much as the book delivers in the areas of action and espionage.
