The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest Chapter 26 Summary

How It All Goes Down

Friday, July 15

  • Teleborian is on the witness stand and Ekström questions him. He testifies that Salander "suffers from paranoid schizophrenia" (26.2).
  • He's sure her autobiography, especially the rape, is an "erotic fantasy" (26.13).
  • Her claim that Teleborian abused her at St. Stefan's by keeping her in restraints is "her inability to interpret reality" (26.28).
  • After lunch, Giannini will cross-examine Teleborian.
  • Before that happens, all the members of the Section are arrested.
