From the book by Sven Larsen

Lisbeth Salander is accused of murdering her father (she did), but it was self-defense, which has to be proved. Usual chip on her shoulder, spiked hair, makeup, and multiple piercings are really dominant. Reaches way down to your gut and helps you realize she's been through some real crapola in her life. Mikael has to work to prove her innocence. It isn't easy. His sister takes on the case as Lisbeth's lawyer. It's so hard to understand....and like....this girl. But you do.
