    Origins[ edit ] After his death, many of Larsson's friends said the character of Lisbeth Salander was created out of an incident in which Larsson, then a teenager, witnessed three of his friends gang-raping an acquaintance of his named Lisbeth, and did nothing to stop it. Days later, wracked with guilt, he begged her forgiveness — which she refused. The incident, he said, haunted him for years afterward, and in part moved him to create a character with her name who was also a rape survivor. A rebellious teenager, she often wore black clothing and makeup and told him several times that she wanted to get a tattoo of a dragon. The author often emailed Therese while writing the novels to ask her about her life and how she would react in certain situations. To Larsson, there was no difference, and the "systematic violence" against women highly affected and inspired him to take action against these crimes through his writing. Eva Gabrielsson , Larsson's longtime partner, wrote that "the trilogy allowed Stieg to denounce everyone he loathed for their cowardice, their irresponsibility, and their opportunism: couch-potato activists , sunny-day warriors, fair-weather skippers who pick and choose their causes; false friends who used him to advance their own careers; unscrupulous company heads and shareholders who wrangle themselves huge bonuses

    Part 4 — Terminator[ edit ] Part 4 begins with Salander's wondering why the press's inside source has chosen not to publicize "All the Evil", the events which dominated the gap in her biography, information she knows would swing public opinion even further against her. Blomkvist is approached by Paolo Roberto , a boxing champion and Salander's former coach.

    Blomkvist asks Roberto to help by finding Miriam Wu, who, released by the police, has been avoiding all contact from the press, including Blomkvist. In the meantime, at Salander's suggestion, Blomkvist focuses on Zala as the key connection among the three murders and the sex trafficking. As the police continue the investigation, Blomkvist's team also notices the three-year gap in Salander's biography.

    Roberto, staking out Salander's former apartment in the hopes of catching Wu, witnesses her being kidnapped into a van by a paunchy man with a ponytail Salander's earlier attacker and a "blond giant". He follows the van to a warehouse south of Nykvarn , where he attempts to rescue Wu by boxing with the giant. He finds his opponent unusually muscular and totally insensitive to pain , and only through applications of massive blunt trauma can he and Wu stun the giant enough to escape.

    The giant recovers and sets the warehouse on fire to destroy the evidence. However, Roberto is able to direct the police to the site, where they find three buried and dismembered bodies. Visiting Bjurman's summer cabin, Salander finds a classified Swedish Security Service file written about "All The Evil", and begins to make the connection between Bjurman and Zala, whose real name is Alexander Zalachenko.

    Salander physically incapacitates them, leaving more suspects for Bublanski to find. She returns to her apartment and, having no choice, decides to find Zalachenko and kill him. In his apartment, Blomkvist finds Salander's keys, which he had picked up after her escape from Lundin.

    He manages to find her new, upscale apartment as well as the DVD revealing Bjurman's crime. He became the partner of a year-old woman who became pregnant with twins, Lisbeth and Camilla.

    Zalachenko was an itinerant father who physically and emotionally abused his partner when he was home. The cycle of violence culminated in Lisbeth Salander's deliberately setting his car alight with gasoline while her father was in it.

    This is the event Salander refers to as "All the Evil", since the authorities, instead of listening to her pleas on behalf of her mother, imprisoned Salander and declared her insane.

    Salander's mother was left with the first of a series of cerebral hemorrhages which consigned her to nursing homes and ultimately caused her death. Salander realised that the government would never acknowledge Zalachenko's crimes, which would require them to admit his existence.

    Zalachenko was allowed to walk away, but suffered serious injuries and had to have his foot amputated. It developed into a painfully roundabout procedure in which he certainly understood her signals but had no idea how to react to them. Finally she lost patience, pushed him roughly onto the bed, and took off her shirt and jeans. It was the first time she had shown herself naked to anyone since the operation in Italy.

    She had left the clinic with a feeling of panic. It took her a long while to realize that no-one was staring at her. Young Bland had been a perfect initiation for her new self. When at last after some encouragement he managed to unfasten her bra, he immediately switched off the lamp before undressing himself. Salander could tell that he was shy, and she turned the lamp back on. She watched his reactions closely as he began to touch her clumsily.

    Only much later did she relax, certain that he thought her breasts were natural. On the other hand, it was unlikely he had much to compare them to.

    She had not planned to get herself a teenage lover on Grenada. But the next day she ran into him on the beach and realized that the clumsy boy was pleasant company. For the seven weeks she lived on Grenada, George Bland became a regular part of her life. They did not spend time together during the day, but they spent the hours before sundown on the beach and the evenings alone in his shack. She was aware that when they walked together they looked like two teenagers. Sweet sixteen. He evidently thought that life had become much more interesting.

    He had met a woman who was teaching him about mathematics and eroticism. He opened the door and smiled delightedly at her. Salander left the shack just after two in the morning. She had a warm feeling in her body and strolled along the beach instead of taking the road to the Keys Hotel. She walked alone in the dark, knowing that Bland would be a hundred yards behind.

    He always did that. She had never slept over at his place, and he often protested that she, a woman all alone, should not be walking back to her hotel at night. He insisted it was his duty to accompany her back to the hotel. Especially when it was very late, as it often was. Salander would listen to his objections and then cut the discussion off with a firm no.

    The first time she caught him following her she was really annoyed. But now she thought his wanting to protect her was rather sweet, so she pretended that she did not know he was there behind her or that he would turn back when he saw her go in the door of the hotel. She wondered what he would do if she were attacked. She would make use of the hammer she had bought at a hardware store and kept in the outside pocket of her shoulder bag.

    There were not so many physical threats that could not be countered with a decent hammer, Salander thought.

    There was a full moon and the stars were sparkling. Salander looked up and identified Regulus in Leo near the horizon. She was almost at the hotel terrace when she stopped short.

    She had caught sight of someone near the waterline below the hotel. It was the first time she had seen a living soul on the beach after dark. He was almost a hundred yards off, but Salander knew at once who it was there in the moonlight. It was the fine Dr. Forbes from room She took three quick steps into the shadow of a tree. When she turned her head, Bland was invisible too. He was smoking a cigarette.

    Every so often he would stop and bend down as if to examine the sand. Salander waited for a few minutes before she went down to where Dr. Forbes had been. She made a slow semicircle, inspecting the sand. All she could make out was pebbles and some shells. After a few minutes she broke off her search and went back to the hotel. All was quiet.

    After a while she took from her shoulder bag some papers to roll a joint from the supply that Bland had given her. She sat down on a balcony chair and gazed out at the dark water of the Caribbean as she smoked and thought. She felt like a radar installation on high alert. He saw everyone passing in an unbroken stream, but observed none of them. He was thinking of Lisbeth Salander. He thought often about Salander. What he was thinking made him boil with rage. Salander had crushed him. He was never going to forget it.

    She had taken command and humiliated him. She had abused him in a way that had left indelible marks on his body. On an area the size of a book below his navel. He had been assigned to be her guardian, which made her inescapably dependent on him. From the first time he met her he had fantasized about her. He could not explain it, but she seemed to invite that response. What he had done—he, a fifty-five-year-old lawyer—was reprehensible, indefensible by any standard.

    He knew that, of course. The laws, the most basic moral code, and his responsibility as her guardian—none of it mattered at all. She was a strange girl—fully grown but with an appearance that made her easily mistaken for a child. He had control over her life; she was his to command. She had a record that robbed her of credibility if she ever had a mind to protest.

    Nor was it a rape of some innocent—her file confirmed that she had had many sexual encounters, could even be regarded as promiscuous.

    A police patrol had observed a drunken older man sitting with a young girl on a park bench in Tantolunden. The police had confronted the pair; the girl had refused to answer their questions, and the man was too intoxicated to give them any sensible information.

    It was risk-free. If she dared to protest to the Guardianship Agency, no-one was going to believe her word against his. She was the ideal plaything—grown-up, promiscuous, socially incompetent, and at his mercy. It was the first time he had exploited one of his clients. Previously it had never occurred to him to make advances to anyone with whom he had a professional relationship.

    To satisfy his sexual needs, he had always turned to prostitutes. He had been discreet and he paid well; the problem was that prostitutes were not serious, they were only pretending.

    It was a service he bought from a woman who moaned and rolled her eyes; she played her part, but it was as phony as street theatre. He had tried to dominate his wife in the years that he was married, but she had merely gone along with it, and that too was a game. Salander had been the perfect solution. She was defenceless. She had no family, no friends: a true victim, ripe for plundering. The opportunity makes the thief. And then out of the blue she had destroyed him.

    She had struck back with a power and determination that he had not dreamed she possessed. She had humiliated him. She had tortured him.

    She had all but demolished him. He had locked himself in, did not answer the telephone, and was unable even to keep up contact with his regular clients. After two weeks he went on sick leave. His secretary was deputized to deal with his correspondence at the office, cancelling all his meetings and trying to keep irritated clients at bay. Every day he was confronted by the tattoo on his body. Finally he took down the mirror from the bathroom door.

    He returned to his office at the beginning of summer. He had handed over most of his clients to his colleagues. The only ones he kept for himself were companies for whom he dealt with legal business correspondence without being involved in meetings. His only active client now was Salander—each month he wrote up a balance sheet and a report for the Guardianship Agency. He did very precisely what she had demanded: the reports had not a grain of truth in them and made plain that she no longer needed a guardian.

    Each report was an excruciating reminder of her existence, but he had no choice. Bjurman had spent the summer and the autumn in helpless, furious brooding. And then, in December, he pulled himself together and went on a vacation to France.

    While there, he consulted a specialist at a clinic for cosmetic surgery outside Marseilles about how best to remove the tattoo.

    The specialist had examined his abdomen with ill-concealed astonishment. At last he recommended a course of action. One way would be laser treatment, he said, but the tattoo was so extensive and the needle had penetrated so deeply that he was afraid the only realistic solution was a series of skin grafts. It would be expensive and would take time. In the past two years Bjurman had seen Salander on only one occasion.

    On the night she attacked him and established control over his life, she had taken the spare set of keys to his office and apartment.

    She would be watching him, she had told him, and when he least expected it she would drop in. He had almost begun to believe it was an empty threat, but he had not dared to change the locks.

    Her warning had been unmistakable—if she ever found him in bed with a woman, Salander would make public the ninety-minute video that documented how he had raped her. In January a year ago he had woken at a. He turned on his bedside light and almost howled in fright when he saw her standing at the foot of his bed. She was like a ghost suddenly there. Her face was pale and expressionless.

    In her hand she held her fucking Taser. While I slept? He could not tell whether she was bluffing. Bjurman cleared his throat and was about to speak. She cut him off with a gesture. Send them to this hotmail address. Is that understood? He had not dared to try to reach her, since she had threatened to send the video to the authorities if he did.

    Instead he had thought for months what he would say to her when eventually she contacted him. He really had nothing he could say in his defence. All he could do was appeal to her humanity. He would try to convince her—if she would only give him a chance to speak—that he had done it in a fit of insanity, that he was utterly sorry for it and wanted to make amends.

    He would grovel if that would convince her, if he could only somehow defuse the threat that she posed. Then she put one foot on the bottom of the bed and stared at him in disgust.

    I have no reason to forgive you. You fail, and the video goes to the agency. You contact me in any way other than I tell you to, then I make the video public.

    I die in an accident, the video will be made public. You ever touch me again, I will kill you. The day I set you free, you can do as you like. But until that day you will not set foot again in that clinic in Marseilles. The next moment she was gone. He heard a faint click as she turned the front-door key.

    It was as if a ghost had paid him a visit.

    The giant recovers and sets the warehouse on fire to destroy the evidence. However, Roberto is able to direct the police to the site, where they find three buried and dismembered bodies. Visiting Bjurman's summer cabin, Salander finds a classified Swedish Security Service file written about "All The Evil", and begins to make the connection between Bjurman and Zala, whose real name is Alexander Zalachenko.

    Zalachenko was an itinerant father who physically and emotionally abused his partner when he was home. The cycle of violence culminated in Lisbeth Salander's deliberately setting his car alight with gasoline while her father was in it.

    The Girl Who Played with Fire

    Niedermann had killed Svensson and Johansson on Zalachenko's orders: Bjurman then called Zalachenko in a panic, leading not only to their deaths but to his own, as well. Blomkvist does not share all of his findings with Bublanski, out of respect for Salander's privacy, but between his testimony, the various character witnesses, and the additional accomplices piling up, the police are forced to admit that their original suspicions of Salander as a psychotic murderer may have been wrong.

    Armansky is satisfied, as his true goal in aiding the investigation—ensuring Salander is not simply condemned as a murderer out of hand—has been achieved. He has deduced that Salander has entered what Roberto and his boxing friends called " Terminator Mode", where she attacks without restraint to defend her life and those she cares about. Salander enters the farmhouse and is captured as a result of secret cameras and alarms Zalachenko had installed. Zalachenko tells Salander that Niedermann is her half-brother.

    When Salander attempts to escape, Zalachenko shoots her in the hip, shoulder, and head, and Niedermann buries her, not realising she is still alive.

    Battling through immense pain, Salander slowly digs herself out and again attempts to kill Zalachenko with an axe, noting that Zalachenko's use of a Browning. The book ends as Blomkvist finds Salander and calls emergency services. The English version was published in January and immediately became a number 1 bestseller. Carla McKay at the Daily Mail said that, like its predecessor, the book is "not just a thrilling read, but tackles head-on the kind of issues that Larsson himself railed against in society".

    Most of the reviewers concentrated mainly on the character of Lisbeth Salander, with Mark Lawson at the Guardian saying that "the huge pleasure of these books is Salander, a fascinating creation with a complete and complex psychology. The character of Paolo Roberto is an actual person. He is a former boxer and television chef who has also dabbled in politics.

    He played himself in the film adaptation of the book. In the first part of the book, Salander is exploring Dimensions in Mathematics apparently written by L. Parnault and published by Harvard University Press in On February 9, , Harvard University Press announced on their website that this book and the author are purely fictitious. Bodin was born in Karlstad and later moved to Sundsvall.

    At the war's end, Bodin and another Swedish volunteer stole a car in an attempted escape to Sweden. The car's owner saw the theft, and soon a gunfight erupted in which the car owner and Bodin's friend were shot. Bodin left his friend behind and crossed the border.
