Lisbeth Salander. The girl of the Millenium Series. Who would not want a friend like that?

“Don’t ever fight with Lisbeth Salander. Her attitude towards the rest of the world is that if someone threatens her with a gun, she’ll get a bigger gun.” 
― Stieg LarssonThe Girl Who Played with Fire

Actually to be honest, when I picked this theme, I was determined to stick to the friends of my youth and childhood. I met Lisbeth much later as the books were written long after I technically 'grew up'. I remember I picked up the first one, (The girl with the dragon tattoo) at the airport on our way to a holiday in Spain in 2010. When it finished I was in Seville and utterly disappointed that I could not find a book shop that sold books in the English language! Needless to say the first thing I did when I landed in New Delhi was buy the other two!!)
So.."L" cannot be anyone but Lisbeth, a friend who I met when I was no child but who has and continues to stir my imagination!

  1. I keep meaning to read these books. I have no excuse except that I have so many books already. But, I think I'll have to add these to my shelf - soon!

  2. Do please. There are worlds out there that you are missing.:)

  3. I LOVE Lisbeth - don't know why I haven't seen her in more movies. We just re-watched the first of those series of movies.
