Qui is the subject of a subordinate clause.

Lequel is the indirect object of a subordinate clause and is used in conjunction with a preposition.

Anne m'a montré le livre, qui te plaît tant. -- Anne showed me the book, that you like so much.

Anne m'a montré le livre dans lequel le héros s'appelle comme toi. -- Anne showed me the book, in which the hero has the same name as you.

A remark on the side: care must be taken with the preposition de, which sometimes needs the relative pronoun dont and sometimes duquel/de laquelle, but that's a different story...
