lisbeth salander

I have not read the third Millennium book yet, but I'm looking forward to it. One tic I really enjoy, and have mentioned before I dare say, is that Stieg Larsson leaves us in absolutely no doubt as to the tech choices favoured by every one of his protagonists.* This, and other things, get brisk and excellent treatment from Nora Ephron in The New Yorker here. For eg:
“I know you’re home,” he said.
Kalle fucking Blomkvist.
She tried to remember whether she was speaking to him or not. Probably not. She tried to remember why. No one knew why. It was undoubtedly because she’d been in a bad mood at some point.

*Another enjoyable tic: anyone with a goatee is evil.
