- Edited the description of Lisbeth Salander: The female lead character of the story, a genius hacker with a troubled past. Very small in stature. Has tatoos and piercings.The most exciting female character to emerge in fiction for many decades. A computer wizard with a photographic memory, she is atypical of heroines in general. She is not tall; she is not beautiful; she is not gregarious but in fact rather anti-social,
but by goshshe is lovable.

- Removed a character:
Lisbeth Salander: This character fascinates me. When I first began The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, I did not think that I would like Lisbeth Salander because on the surface we seemed to be nothing alike and have absolutely nothing in common. She seems to be harsh and emotionless but when you get to know her, you know that she wears an armor to protect herself rather than allow people to continue hurting her. She has no one whom she can trust because they have all hurt her, and to prevent it from happening again she would rather not let anyone into her life. She has a social disorder, probably Aspurgers, a form of Autism and having a lot of experience with this disorder I sympathize with her struggles and see that she is just trying to survive.
