"Trigger warning: sexual assault. I really love the character development with Salander and her starting out as a guarded, very insensitive girl and turns into her really strange romantic and sexual like with men twice her age. (She's twenty and they're forty) you see her and the men go through some really interesting situations with what is right and wrong. Also this is the first book I've read set in my homeland of Sweden so I was very excited that they mentioned my mum's hometown of Trollhättan"
