The Girl Who Played With Fire

The Girl Who Played With Fire

by Stieg Larsson

Niklas Hedström

Character Analysis

Hedström works at Milton Security and is assigned to the team investigating the murders of Dag, Mia, and Bjurman. He wanted to be a policeman, but a heart problem kept him of the force. He's very bitter about this. He also hates Salander because she caught him acting unethically on a case and threatened to turn him in. Hedström sabotages the police investigation by leaking scandalous details about Salander to reporter Tony Scala, until, that it, Detective Bublanski catches him.
