Daaaaddyyyyy, I'm coming to get yoooou. (28.166)

Salander isn't one to get sentimental about blood relations. A bad man is a bad man.

Quote #11

Salander: "Does he know we're half siblings?" (31.82)

Zala: "Of course. But if you think you can appeal to brotherly love, forget it. I'm his family. […] And he isn't your only sibling. You have at least four more brothers and three sisters in various countries." (31.83)

This one shocked Shmoop a little bit somehow. To learn that Salander and Niedermann are brother and sister and that she has seven other siblings! Wow. It really is a shame that Larsson didn't get to finish his plans for the Salander/Blomkvist saga. At least a few of these other siblings would surely have popped up!
