I've read up to chapter 2 as well.
A lot of aspects about this book is more engaging than the first one. The beginning is moving faster, and I'm enjoying the twists.
I was surprised that Lisbeth got breast implants, and I also find the mathematical theme both intriguing and puzzling. I keep wondering where they will take this throughout the entire book.
You could be right about Lisbeth being the girl in the prologue...that or her sister Camilla. I'm a bit disappointed that Larsson brought in a twin, seems a bit contrived as far as a plot twist goes. Still, Larsson is a good writer, so I'm sure he will take it somewhere. I'm guessing the twin won't come into play until the 3rd book since I've read the jacket flap about what this book concerns.
I'm assuming the "All The Evil" refers to the man that Bjurman is contacting as an alley against Lisbeth. She must have witnessed something horrible as a child, and the man suffered for it. If we are basing it off the prologue, then it has something sexually deviant to the crime.
I can't believe this guy Bjurman. He has sealed his own death sentence I'm sure. Once Lisbeth finds out what he is doing, she won't hesitate to kill him.
Lisbeth reminds me of an "anti-heroine" character. She does villainous or bad actions, yet we identify with her. Wikipedia describes it as follows:
"...Antiheroine as feminine) is generally considered to be a protagonist whose character is at least in some regards conspicuously contrary to that of the archetypal hero, and is in some instances its antithesis. Some consider the word's meaning to be sufficiently broad as to additionally encompass the antagonist, who (in contrast to the archetypal villain), elicits considerable sympathy or admiration."
I'm surprised by Lisbeth's relationship with the young teenage boy in Grenada. I wonder if he is going to suffer for having known and slept with her. I keep imagining he will end up dead. Seems odd that she has attached herself to someone so young. After her affair with Blomkvist I guess she wanted someone younger rather than older.
Looking forward to the rest of this book. I'll also be finishing up "The Hunger Games" soon too.
