I have to say, Lagercrantz is a worthy successor to Larsson. Some things moved in a direction I doubt Larsson had in mind, but this is a stellar work. I love how effortlessly he switches between POV's and how he gives us a feeling for a character with just a few broad strokes. The plot is intricate and moves along nicely. The most notable difference to me was the lack of graphic violence and sex scenes which set the tone for the original trilogy.
