The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest

by Stieg Larsson

Advokat Holger Palmgren

Character Analysis

Palmgren is Salander's ex-guardian and close friend. He is definitely part of Team Salander. He testifies persuasively at her trial and provides evidence that another doctor at St. Stefan's tried to stop Teleborian from strapping Salander down and drugging her as part of her so-called treatment. This is important in establishing Salander's story as the truth and Teleborian's as malicious fiction.
