The dossier is disappointingly mild, simply 3 records: one approximately Irina P, one approximately Sandström, and one approximately Zala himself. because the mid Nineties the identify had cropped up in 9 drug, guns or prostitution instances. Zala was once answerable for Irina P’s demise. Zala’s identify first seemed in reference to a botched safeguard van hold-up in 1996. Nieminen, who had provided the guns, has hyperlinks with Nazi organisations, resembling the Aryan Brotherhood (we’re again to echoes of Larsson’s real-life battles with extremist organisations). Salander sits and smokes for a number of hours (she has her creator’s laissez-faire perspective to her personal health), realizing she has to discover Zala and settle their bills as soon as and for all. Blomkvist is returning domestic from a publisher’s occasion earlier than three am while he passes Salander’s previous house and – in yet one more not likely juxtaposition – sees her step out into the road, basically to be accosted by means of a tall guy in a ponytail (it is Lundin).

She throws a pointy stone at him, wounding him nonetheless additional. She resolves to punish Bjurman for sending a ‘diabolical alpha male’ to do her damage.

Blomkvist understands the ebook will explicitly divulge the corrupt process and is ‘a announcement of conflict’ (of the type that Larsson, as a journalist, was once all too primary with). the writer is definitely acutely aware that by means of this element within the narrative we’ll be hungry for an additional glimpse of his abrasive heroine, and obliges (her appearances are to some degree the allegros to Blomkvist’s largos). At 9 that night Svensson and Johansson are visited by means of Lisbeth Salander. To Svensson she seems to be in her overdue kids and he notes her chilly, raven-black irises. She is familiar with in regards to the publication and the thesis, a lot to the couple’s shock and suspicion. She desires to comprehend why they’re asking questions on ‘Alexander’ Zala. this is often the 1st time Svensson has heard his first identify – truly Salander is aware issues he doesn’t. Blomkvist tells his legal professional sister Annika approximately Salander’s dramatic reappearance in his lifestyles, and asks even if he will be consulting her for felony recommendation on Svensson’s publication, as her specialist speciality is violence on ladies. His sister confesses she was once harm whilst Blomkvist by no means consulted her over the Wennerström affair, but if he apologises, she says she’d feel free to learn in the course of the textual content. however it is time for Stieg Larsson to remind the reader in regards to the risky international his characters circulate in.
