Quote #13

"Mir-g-kral," she said, and heard a voice that sounded like mush. She swallowed. Mikael. It's Salander." (32.108)

OK, we think the fact that Salander tries to call Blomkvist in her moment of greatest need shows that she's willing to try trusting him, in spite of her fear of getting hurt.

Quote #14

Her last thoughts were of Miriam Wu. (32.142)

Please forgive me, Mimmi. (32.143)

This tells us a lot about how much she cares about Mimmi. What do you think, exactly, she's asking Mimmi to forgive her for? Is it the fact that she put Mimmi in harm's way by giving Mimmi her apartment, or something more?
