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.
June 8, 1954. Alan Turing, the visionary mathematician, is found dead at his home in sleepy Wilmslow, dispatched by a poisoned apple.
Taking the case, Detective Constable Leonard Corell quickly learns Turing is a convicted homosexual. Confident it's a suicide, he is nonetheless confounded by official secrecy over Turing's war record. What is more, Turing's sexuality appears to be causing alarm among the intelligence services - could he have been blackmailed by Soviet spies?
Stumbling across evidence of Turing's genius, and sensing an escape from a narrow life, Corell soon becomes captivated by Turing's brilliant and revolutionary work, and begins to dig deeper.
But in the paranoid, febrile atmosphere of the Cold War, loose cannons cannot be tolerated. As his innocent curiosity fast takes him far out of his depth, Corell realises he has much to learn about the dangers of forbidden knowledge.
The girl is back. September 2015. See what happens next. In this adrenaline-charged, up-to-the moment political thriller, Stieg Larsson’s Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist are back. The troubled genius hacker and crusading journalist thrilled the world in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest--the trilogy that has sold more than 75 million copies worldwide.
From the author of the #1 bestseller The Girl in the Spider's Web, an electrifying thriller that begins with Alan Turing's suicide and then opens out to take in a young detective's awakening to painful secrets about his own life--and the life of his country.
It's 1954. Several English nationals have defected to the USSR, while a witch hunt for homosexuals rages across Britain. In these circumstances, no one is surprised when a mathematician by the name of Alan Turing is found dead in his home: it is widely assumed that he committed suicide, unable to cope with the humiliation of a criminal conviction for homosexuality. But young Detective Sergeant Leonard Corell, who had always dreamt of a career in higher mathematics, suspects greater forces are involved. In the face of opposition from his superiors, he begins to assemble the pieces of a puzzle that lead him to one of the most closely guarded secrets of the war: the Bletchley Park operation to crack the Nazis' Enigma code. But he is also about to be rocked by two startling developments in his own life, one of which will find him being pursued as a threat to national security...
THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO LIVES ON.
Lisbeth Salander is an unstoppable force:Sentenced to two months in Flodberga women's prison for saving a young boy's life by any means necessary, Salander refuses to say anything in her own defence. She has more important things on her mind.Mikael Blomkvist makes the long trip to visit every week - and receives a lead to follow for his pains. For him, it looks to be an important expose for Millennium. For her, it could unlock the facts of her childhood.Even from a corrupt prison system run largely by the inmates, Salander will stand up for what she believes in, whatever the cost. And she will seek the truth that is somehow connected with her childhood memory, of a woman with a blazing birthmark on her neck - that looked as if it had been burned by a dragon's fire . . . The tension, power and unstoppable force of The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye are inspired by Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy, as Salander and Blomkvist continue the fight for justice that has thrilled millions of readers across the world.Translated from the Swedish by George Goulding
« Pour bien jouer, il faut être fou. Pour être bon, il faut se sentir en colère. » Voilà les commentaires de Zlatan après l´un de ses premiers matches avec le PSG. Rien de surprenant pour qui a lu son incroyable autobiographie. Né en 1981, d´un père bosniaque obsédé par le passé de son pays et d´une mère croate qui travaille jour et nuit pour sa famille, il n´a que deux ans lorsque ses parents divorcent. S´ensuit une enfance douloureuse dans les quartiers difficiles de Malmö, en Suède, durant laquelle il se sent toujours à l´écart. Lui-même confie que sans le foot, il serait devenu criminel ! Dans son premier club, ses origines et son tempérament l´isolent déjà. On essaie même de l´exclure... Mais très rapidement, il est repéré et sa course vers la gloire commence : Malmö FF, Ajax Amsterdam, Juventus de Turin, Inter de Milan, Barca, AC Milan pour enfin signer avec le PSG en juillet 2012. Buteur de génie, grande gueule, formidable technicien, il suscite des polémiques à chacun de ses passages. S´il est le joueur le plus cher de l´histoire du football tous transferts cumulés (172,6 millions d´euros !), il est le seul footballeur à avoir gagné chaque année le championnat dans lequel il a joué. En Serbo-croate, Zlatan veut dire « de l´or »... Son autobiographie est à son image : sincère jusqu´à la provocation, perfectionniste jusqu´à l´excès. Et comme souvent chez les champions qui paraissent invulnérables, les failles existent. De ses souffrances à ses plus grandes fiertés, Zlatan se livre sans concessions. David Lagercrantz, qui a travaillé avec Zlatan, est aussi journaliste, romancier et biographe suédois de grande réputation. « Le livre de Zlatan va devenir un « classique » qui contribuera à changer la Suède. Il est bon, incroyablement bon. Un portrait d´une enfance digne d´un chef-d´oeuvre. » Lasse Anrell, Aftonbladet Traduit de l´anglais par Olivier Villepreux
