*** And regardless of your thoughts on whether or not you were okay with the series continuing, ''The Girl in the Spider's Web'' was met with mixed reviews. Some enjoyed the plot and characters and were warmly receptive of it as a continuation of the series, while others found that the writing and plot failed to live up to Larsson's and [[{{Flanderization}} flanderized]] both Lisbeth and Blomkvist.

* SeasonalRot: Generally considered the weakest in the series, with the gripping action of the first two novels put aside and more ponderous legal drama taking the stage.

** In all fairness, Niedermann started the match as a traditional boxing round, at least as tradition a match can be in a warehouse with a kidnap victim and a chainsaw. Roberto got caught by surprise because he was analyzing the match as a typical boxer.
* HarsherInHindsight: In the novel, its hinted that Mia was pregnant.

** In regards to the books: The Larsson books or Post-Larsson books. Either you're okay with the series continuing and trying to fulfill Larrson's idea of ten books within the series ''or'' you find it a complete middle finger from Larsson's family decided to continue the series and disregard the fact his partner, Eva Gabrielsson should be a part of Larsson's estate (as she owns the last of the planned manuscripts Larsson had written before his death) due to the two never being married, as which was both Larsson and Gabrielsson did intentionally to avoid being tracked due to their anti-fascist work.

** Martin Vanger is the likable CEO of a family corporation. He is troubled since his sister vanished long ago. He also comes across as a nice guy and saves the protagonist's life in the movie. In the end, however, Martin [[BeneathTheMask reveals his true colors]]: he is a serial killer, who has been torturing, raping and murdering hundreds of women since he was a teenager. His chilling explanation is: "This is every man's innermost dream. [[ChaoticEvil I take what I want.]]" Martin suffers his comeuppance, when Lisbeth denies him the same mercy he denied all his victims.
** Martin's father, Gottfried, is an anti-Semitic racist Nazi, itself a horrid way to make a first impression. Gottfried rapes his own daughter and kills at least 7 women in parodies of Old Testament (specifically, Leviticus) punishments. He is also the one responsible for raising Martin into an individual like himself.

* HilariousInHindsight: Eva Green and Lea Seydoux were among the actresses considered for the role of Lisbeth, five years after the former and 4 years before the latter would play a BondGirl opposite Daniel Craig.

* MoralEventHorizon: Even though he's trying to screw up Lisbeth's life, [[spoiler: Fredrik Clinton]] crosses this when he arranges for Mikael to be murdered and framed for dealing drugs in an effort to destroy his credibility. Wadensjöö even calls him on it, saying that [[spoiler:Clinton]] will end up destroying The Section because of his actions.

* HarsherInHindsight: At the beginning of the novel, Blomkvist says that he is going to talk with Dag and Mia's families about the publication of Dag's books, to get their opinion. In RealLife Larrsen's family was much less considerate about the manuscripts, publishing them without his partner's consent.

* SlowPacedBeginning: The book gets off to a slow start, with a lot of infodumping about Blomkvist's legal troubles in a story that's supposed to be mystery. This thread doesn't get picked back up until the very end, causing EndingFatigue. Meanwhile, the book's whole first half cuts between Blomkvist and Salander's stories seemingly at random, making it quite a relief when they finally join forces. It's likely that Larsson would have done some editing to make it flow better if he'd lived.
