How we cite our quotes: Citations follow this format: (Chapter.Paragraph)

Quote #7

"I couldn't prevent shit. As a policewoman I invariably arrived on the scene after a crime had been committed." (18.343)

Suzanne Linder likes working for Milton Security because she can actually prevent crimes from happening. It strikes us a little sad that good cops like Linder end up leaving the police force.

Quote #8

She forgave nothing. (19.10)

Don't get any ideas that Salander is any less full of vengeance than in previous books. Just because she's using the legal system this time doesn't mean that she has fundamentally changed.

Quote #9

"Peter Teleborian, you are under arrest for violation of the child pornography laws." (27.434)

This is definitely a point for justice. Hopefully Teleborian won't be allowed to hurt any more kids.
